#SolsticeChroniclesMIA is Ironward’s follow-up to The Red Solstice. Which has sold more than 150k copies to date. Yet this time around, we will have Linux and Mac support, but first the #Windows debut on Steam #games. Hence all the support in pledges gain in the Fig campaign.
What about the Linux release?
“Prob by the end of the year, first we must finish the PC one [release].”
While not a direct sequel, Solstice Chronicles: MIA takes place in the same setting. While humans have abandoned Earth due to disease. Colonizing Mars in a desperate bid to save their species. With Martian colonies now also overrun by the STROL virus. The Corporation and insurgents will stop at nothing to find the cure and return to Earth.
Solstice Chronicles: MIA – Launch trailer:
Solstice Chronicles: MIA Features
- Master fluid the games twin-stick combat. Blast through waves of mutants on Mars.
- Use your drone’s abilities tactically. Weighing the risk and reward of decisions that drastically change the threat you face.
- Decide between scavenging for supplies and upgrades in the face of the oncoming menace. Or pushing forward, potentially unprepared for the enemies still to come.
- Decimate the mutant onslaught with upgradeable weaponry. Including shotguns, rocket launchers, and more. As well as special Heavy weapons, like the autocannon and flamethrower. Since it releases devastation to everything in their path.
- Develop your own skill tree from across four classes–Assault, Demolition, Hellfire, and Terminator–to become the ultimate instrument of destruction.
Therefore Solstice Chronicles: MIA players must use the drone’s abilities wisely. Since this means fight-or-flight decisions to manipulate threat levels. Balancing risk versus reward. Such as using ‘Scout’, for example, will send the drone out for supplies. Yet make the fight more difficult. While ‘Taunt’ causes the drone to lure in larger waves of weaker enemies. ‘Bomb’ will decimate your enemies, but the next wave will push even harder. And, while ‘Block’ may give you some breathing room. This also has a nasty habit of attracting bosses to the fight.
So as it stands right now, Solstice Chronicles: MIA release only playable in Wine. Hence using things like PlayOnLinux and even Crossover work well. That much I can confirm.
While Solstice Chronicles: MIA releases with a 10% discount until August 2nd on Windows. While Linux and Mac support are coming later. Hopefully sooner than later. So stay tuned.
