Ironward’s first game, The Red Solstice released in 2015 and was a tactical, co-op survival game like the Night of the Dead mod for StarCraft 2. The follow-up, Solstice Chronicles: MIA strays from that, and is a twin-stick shooter that maintains its tactical edge from The Red Solstice. Solstice Chronicles: MIA is unfortunately a game that seems incomplete. While the graphics are impressive and the controls feel good, the story is written in way that doesn’t maintain immersion or cohesion, and the content of the gameplay feels hollow and lifeless, much like the “Red Planet” 140 million miles away from us.
