Daedalic Entertainment and Action Squad Studios have posted the first trailer of their upcoming RPG Iron Danger, and it shows off some sweet time manipulation mechanics that players will get to try out when it hits Steam.
Iron Danger will launch on Steam on 25 March 2020, and thanks to some fan enquiries, it's confirmed that Mac and Linux will have no trouble running it as well.
There are ample hints of how things work in the three-months-old teaser above, but the latest Iron Danger gameplay trailer that Daedalic posted on Twitter shows exactly how the RPG's time-bending mechanic can be used to a great extent.
It's almost like a save system, without having to save, and while the mechanics itself is probably nothing new, its inclusion in an RPG is - at least in this form. We'll save our verdict until we actually try it in action but it does look quite interesting, that much is clear.
Iron Danger is based on Nordic mythology and according to the dev, it aims for the epic feel you'd get if you crossed Lord of the Rings and Transformers.
Action Squad Studios' description of the project reads, "It will be a cross platform release including graphic novels and a game. In the magical world of Kalevala, the heroes of this nature respecting civilisation must face the dark forces of the Northland who plan on taking over their realm."
Iron Danger players will take on the role of an ordinary citizen of Kalevala, collecting pieces of an ancient and powerful totem in order to take on the dangers in the North.
