Fight - Die - Adapt
Iron Danger is a story driven tactical RPG with simultaneous turns. It is a streamlined, action-packed single-player game in which repetitive grinding is kept to a minimum and every moment advances the story. The player controls Kipuna and one of two individual companion characters in tactically challenging battles against a variety of different threats. At center stage in combat is the unique time shifting mechanic that represents Kipuna’s magical influence over the flow of time. It gives the player the ability to rewind at any point with fraction-of-a-second precision, pinpointing strikes to enemies’ unguarded moments, deflecting and dodging attacks exactly when they happen, synchronizing magical and physical attacks to overwhelm difficult enemies, and overcoming impossible odds through trial and error. Iron Danger challenges you to think of combat and puzzles from a different perspective: you may be an experienced gamer who knows all the tricks, but you’ve never played a game like this.
Along the way, if you survive, Kipuna’s magic grows stronger and more versatile, bringing new options and opportunities to combat. Of course, your other fighting abilities improve as well, and you have control over which of Kipuna’s and the companion characters’ stats you wish to upgrade. Instead of repetitively accumulating piles of experience points, however, character development is based on distinctive, level-specific challenges that each provide unique new skill upgrades. These challenges respond to your play style, with trade-offs between different approaches such as offense vs. defense and magic vs. stealth, so that your characters gain new abilities that reflect the way you choose to approach the game.
