Red Solstice Now in Early Access


Today marks the Steam Early Access release of the tactical co-op survival game Red Solstice by developer Ironward. The game, which takes place in the distant future on the planet Mars during a dangerous storm known as the “Red Solstice,” places the players in the shoes of a member of an eight-man team trying to survive on the rough, Martian surface. Each part of the team takes on a different role defined by one of eight different, customizable classes, each with its own unique traits and skills. In addition, there are twenty-five ranks that the player can obtain as they play through the game.

The battle for survival is waged across a number of huge,2 randomized maps, each carrying a variety of objectives and events for the player to overcome and with which to interact. Along the way, the player will fight, gain experience, and customize their weapons and skills, all in an attempt to survive the storm and live to see another day.


The game, which was funded by Ironward and a recent Kickstarter campaign which generated $60,000 in additional funding, is now in its Early Access release on Steam, which the development team hopes will generate some constructive feedback and allow players to dive into and experience the game before it goes into mass release at a later date.

Red Solstice, which was developed by Croatian game development team Ironward and published by Nkidu Games, is available on Steam for Early Access players now. Be on the lookout for out Nation’s Review!

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
