    These are good times for those interested in tactical RPGs with unusual combat systems. We posted about Action Squad Studios' Iron Danger back in 2018. As with Broken Lines, the developers have danced back and forth between calling it a tactical RPG or merely a tactical combat game. But it still seems to be what it was then - a colorful steampunk fantasy game inspired by Finnish folklore and featuring simultaneous turn-based combat with time manipulation abilities. Last year the game was picked up by Daedalic Entertainment and its release date was finally announced in January. In addition to the launch trailer, they also put together a longer feature trailer that should give you a good idea of what it's about.


    If you want to give it a try, Iron Danger is available on Steam or GOG for a not-so-cheap $35 with a 15% launch discount (for two weeks on Steam but only one on GOG for some reason).

    Stop trying to trick people, it's not an RPG.

    And yet he won't post a Lovehammer 400k announcement even though we probably have a deeper RPG element than they do.

    Prolly not enough potato to be made from us.

    "Unique time-manipulation mechanics". Prince of Persia called and is suing you for libel.

    I've seen some of those time manipulation mechanics and they always felt like a chore.

    I'm going to use a "time-manipulation tactic" to try it before I buy it.

    Is it just me or does the game look choppy as fuck in the teaser trailer? It looks like it's running on like 30 FPS...Can someone that's tried it verify whether that's how the game actually does, because that is absolutely unacceptable for any game.

    It looks like save/load game implemeted smoothly, but not more than that.

    I don't have that much time to play games anymore so a linear game without sidequest actually sounds quite appealing to me. Also the lack of inventory and it's mangagement would save me some time. I have huge difficultiy playing todays RPG:s that often take 60+ hours if you're a completionist. I look forward to more games that are mainquest only.
