Meteorbyte Publishing publishers of World Soccer Strikers’91 and developers of ATTRAH and DeckRX are happy to announce “Ignited Steel” a dystopian mecha turn-based tactics game developed Yokaicade.
Ignited Steel is a mech roguelike turn-based-tactics game. The player must manage a team of overheating old-tech mechs and defeat the overlord A.I. Mechs overheat easily turning vulnerable, but their attacks deal more damage. There’s a whole galaxy to liberate at the players hand as they travel from node to node and unravel the galaxy’s story.
The chore battle mechanics are centered around managing heat. When moving and attacking mechs waste energy and generate heat. If they overheat, mechs will become vulnerable to enemy attacks, but will deal increased damage to enemies.
Mechs & Pilots
The player will have many different pilots with unique capabilities to drive the mechanics. As the player explored the galaxy and helps fellow planets, new pilots will be willing to join their crew.
There are 3 types of mechs each with their own advantages and counterplay. Mechs are built using unique modules each with their own purpose. As the player liberates the galaxy, they will earn and purchase new modules with unique traits. These modules will provide mechs with a diverse range of weapons as well as the ability to heal, overheat, and cool down easier.
The galaxy is full of contrasting planets and stories to be told. By jumping from node to node the player will discover the galaxy’s stories, and add new modules and pilots to the crew. A procedurally generated map will offer new planets, pilots, modules, events and missions in every playthrough.
Ignited Steel is the first game developed by Spanish development team Yokaicade. Following the PC release, Ignited Steel will release on Nintendo, Xbox, and PS systems.
