Steam Early Access Debut For Ironkraft – Road to Hell is Just Around The Corner
There has been plenty of games set in alternative WW2 realities, but Ironkraft might just be one of the strangest. With Zomies, Nazis and even aliens thrown in for good measure its post-apocalyptic vehicle driven universe certainly sounds like it won’t be boring. The game was Greenlit on Steam in less than eight days back in August and is set for an Early Access release on October 21st 2015.
Invoker Studios describe Ironkraft as a 2.5D side-scrolling car-brawler where humanity has been reduced to isolated colonies. The roads are no longer safe, but drivers, called Roadtraders, are needed to transport the scarce supplies between the remaining cities. The game enables players to step into the boots of a Roadtrader and features six challenging levels to conquer. Players will have their pick of three different cars and each can be equipped with an assortment of weapons, armor, engines as well as other upgrades.
Loot will play a big role in the game, so apart from collecting and selling cargo you will also be able to attack other traders. In addition, there are also some giant bosses to hunt down in exchange for bounties. Each level also comes packed with secret places, such as hidden Nazi bunkers and according to the developers, the game will be filled to the brim with Easter eggs. The physics-based destruction looks like it will be a lot of fun, but the RPG elements, trading system and car crafting will add some depth as well.
