Prepare for battle in IRONCAST, a steampunk turn-based strategy game infused with puzzle elements for Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch. Match multiple coloured nodes to power a seven-metre tall mechanised war machine, and battle it out for supremacy against the invading forces that threaten 19th century Victorian England.

History lesson

Inspired by science fiction writers from the Victorian era such as H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, IRONCAST is set in an exciting alternative history where refined men and women command gigantic walking war machines, laying waste to the enemies of the British Empire!

Going rogue

Experience a roguelite campaign mode where failure is permanent, but persistent rewards carry over from one play session to the next. Tackle a variety of missions that task you with either destroying an enemy, surviving a set number of turns, salvaging new technology or trading with other characters. Each mission and location you encounter during the campaign is randomised with each playthrough, offering new challenges and opportunities, as well as rewards.

Machine warfare

Match three or more nodes of one colour to generate resources that power your Ironcast’s various weapons and systems, and take on the enemy! Raise a shield to protect your Ironcast against enemy fire, increase your mobility to avoid attacks, and keep an eye on your cooling systems to prevent your machine from overheating. The more nodes you match in a single turn, the more resources you’ll generate!

Spend your resources wisely as you balance offence and defence to overcome your opponents. Will you go in all guns blazing and try to overpower your enemy with sheer brute force, or batten down the hatches and counter against a barrage of incoming attacks?

Heavy metal

Customise and upgrade your Ironcast with unique weapons and defensive systems in between missions by looting new technology and abilities from the wreckage of fallen enemies. Modify your war machine's arsenal further with passive augmentations, and enjoy an almost limitless number of combinations that encourages you to experiment with new strategies and playstyles.
