Indie Game Iron Danger Alpha Trailer [Action Squad Studios]
This story-driven tactical RPG is based in a Steampunk world and includes time manipulation mechanics. From the gameplay, it looks as though there’s a lot going on all at once. Its world is visually impressive and the unique combat system combines to create a unique top-down story-driven RPG.
A specific Iron Danger feature that Action Squad Studios is heavily focusing on is the time manipulation mechanics. Anyone that played Superhot might have an idea of how this system works. For those that haven't, gamers can pause combat to give them time to think about their next move. However, the addition of this mechanic in a tactical, top-down RPG is an original take on the genre. The combat system and more specifically the time manipulation mechanics are clearly showcased in Iron Dangers first combat gameplay trailer that Action Squad Studios shared in August of 2018. The version of the game showcased below was playable at Gamescom 2018.
