Grab Ion Fury (previously Ion Maiden) before the price shoots up tomorrow

Posted by , | Views: 4,455

Interested in slick retro first-person shooters? You may want to act fast as the price of Ion Fury (previously Ion Maiden) goes up tomorrow.

Currently in Early Access, Ion Fury offers a very good preview campaign to play through while you wait for the full release on August 15th. The price is currently around $19.99 but from tomorrow they will bump it up to $24.99.

After playing through the preview campaign for the third time recently, I honestly can't wait for the full experience. I know I've said it before in other articles but it's worth saying again: I love the recent surge of retro-styled first-person shooters. They remind me of a time where gameplay ruled over graphics, something a lot of newer games can't touch.

Want to grab it before the increase? Run over to GOG or Steam.

I'm a cheapo if my stance is "I'd buy it for $15 regular price"? :/

I've bought it, and it's very fun. Too short though. So far there is one episode (I've beaten it in 1.5 hours at the highest difficulty), one extra level, survival mode with waves of enemies and unlimited ammo chaingun, and the game mode where you have 25 hp cap and only grenades as a weapon.

It funny to see that the whole game fits into 50 megabytes of size. It it was made on Unity, it would take 3 GB. All game files are still called 'maiden'.

I highly recommend it to everyone who loves Duke Nukem 3D.

A game with the Build Engine and one episode so far with 6 levels (1,5h gameplay) for 20/25 € is that a bad joke? Way too expensive... ;(

And yet nobody bats an eyelid at early access games with no demo or playable content (which will probably delay or cancel a GNU/Linux version), or pre-ordering a game for 3x as much money.

This game has more content coming (as in the full game), a demo, and a fully playable preview campaign.

Just to put a few things into perspective.
