Developer Wondernaut Studio and publisher CRITICAL REFLEX have announced Ironhive, a new deck-building strategy game in development on PC. Revealed during the PC Gaming Show, Ironhive challenges players to survive a harsh, dystopian future through an interconnected system of deck building, city building, crafting, exploration, resource management, and more. Build your colony, ensure the survival of your people, and create a legacy that will be passed on to the next generations. As the Ironlord, you are their only remaining hope.
The world as we know it ended hundreds of years ago. “The Great Collapse” saw the fall of humanity. With time, surviving groups began to establish new settlements-fortress-cities called “Ironhives.”
As the leader of an Ironhive, you will build your colony, lead your people, explore the world around you, and do everything in your power to withstand the harsh challenges of your hostile world. Every decision will contribute to building your Legacy, acquiring Cultural Traits that will affect subsequent colonies.
Rebuild Your Home. Elevate housing, utility, social, production, and defense buildings.
Corrupted by Choices. Use your cards to maintain your Ironhive’s Stability through every season.
Explore the Wasteland. Send out expeditions in search of vital resources, technologies and more.
Take On the Harsh World’s Challenges. Make decisions through interconnected narrative events, telling a different story with each playthrough.
Secure Your Legacy. Register your legacy in the Book of Ashes and choose cultural traits that will influence your next colonies.
Thick Atmosphere & Beautiful Visuals. Ironhive takes inspiration from Avery Alder’s The Quiet Year and Simon Stålenhag’s The Labyrinth.
The Brazil-based team at Wondernaut comes from a variety of backgrounds, sharing a mission to create rich worlds and tell extraordinary stories. Inspired by the intersection between board games and RPGs, they began to develop Ironhive in 2022 at BIG Festival’s game jam, gaining enough praise both from the judges and the community to pursue expanding the game.
11 bit studios and the Frostpunk 2 development team are excited to offer you an exclusive first glimpse into the gameplay of Frostpunk 2. The highly anticipated full reveal is just around the corner, as noted by the directors of the sequel in their message. Premiering in today’s PC Gaming Show Most Wanted showcase, Frostpunk 2 secured a spot among the 25 most anticipated games of 2024.
The city has undergone significant changes since the events of the first Frostpunk. As it’s grown in both size and population so has it given rise to diverse and conflicting aspirations among its citizens. However, Frostpunk 2 remains rooted in its focus on an emergent narrative set in a harsh, post-apocalyptic atmosphere. All these elements will be showcased in detail within the upcoming gameplay reveal.
In addition to Frostpunk 2, the PC Gaming Show featured another game from 11 bit studios. Recently announced, INDIKA, a unique narrative adventure starring a nun in the titular role, made its appearance with a remixed version of the original trailer. INDIKA is set to release on PC and consoles in 2024.
Demonschool, the school-life tactics RPG with hints of Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Italian horror cinema from developer Necrosoft Games and publisher Ysbryd Games (WORLD OF HORROR, VA-11 HALL-A), hints at what’s to come in a new combat explainer, as seen in today’s PC Gaming Show: Most Wanted showcase.
Demonschool starts a semester of spooky circumstances on PlayStation 5|4, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, and Steam Deck in Q2 2024.
As the heir of the last demon hunter family, incoming college freshman Faye must balance studies and scares to survive one hell of a semester.
Investigate mysterious happenings and mend the tear between worlds while building friendships with Faye’s classmates. Strengthen the bond between demon-busting teammates to bolster flashy combos in tactical, Into the Breach-inspired combat.
Independent developer Indoor Astronaut announced the sequel to its runaway co-op hit Unrailed! with Unrailed 2: Back on Track, coming to Steam Early Access next year.
Featuring chaotic online and couch co-op multiplayer mayhem, players will gather resources, craft tracks, upgrade their trains and overcome the wild world’s wicked challenges to reach the next station or risk becoming a total trainwreck. Each journey through diverse biomes is unique with procedurally generated maps and branching paths across exciting landscapes, or players can even challenge their friends with brand-new user generated maps using the Terrain Conductor tool to create truly frantic and one-of-a-kind game worlds.
In Unrailed 2: Back on Track, players will be able to customize their train and characters in a variety of ways, meaning no two excursions will ever be the same. As the train’s wheels keep on rolling, do you purchase upgrades like a Cannon Cart to blast helpful building components across the map to your waiting teammates, or do you set up a series of costly Conveyor-Belt-Transporters to automate the process? Feeling too lazy to walk? Learn to lob your items across the map or upgrade your stamina to sprint that little bit further and help your fellow conductors. The possibilities are endless.
Players will be able to freely explore a vast world of interconnected and diverse biomes, unlocking new regions as starting points to continue their journeys on. Additionally, players will keep certain upgrades between runs, so each locomotive loss is an opportunity to rebuild and get back on track with new abilities and perks. Unrailed 2: Back on Track will be available on Steam Early Access in 2024. Fans are invited to Wishlist the game now to stay updated for more information or follow the Unrailed! social channels for up-to-date news. For more information visit: https://unrailed-game.com/
