Ironfell is a time travel themed massive multi-player online real time strategy (MMORTS) game.
You begin with a single Explorer, thrown back in time to a safe green valley surrounded by mountains. You collect resources, build technology, and create armies to conquer new lands… or simply meander around, planting flowers in picturesque mountain valleys.
The game is set in a 2D hexagon tiled universe, divided into separate realms. Each realm can be a mountain valley, a large island or even an whole ocean with many new types of realm planned for the future. This structure allows all players to be in the same universe (no shards), but for the game to be scalable, with realms hosted on separate server instances.
Ironfell is completely self funded and DataSmugglers is not looking for additional investment. Ideally it will earn enough to pay David’s rent and for an occasional lunch at the pub. The exact business model is yet to be decided, but you can read David’s thoughts on “free to play” and other income options here.
For the past six months, Ironfell has been in beta. The game has changed dramatically in that time, with the addition of resource trading, epic ocean realms, naval battles and castles. There have also been some bug fixes and performance optimizations.
Ironfell is free to play. It's on the Google Play store, and Mac OSX and Windows versions can also be download from the Ironfell website. All platforms connect to the same massive, persistent universe consisting of 42,000 realms packed with 2.2 million user controlled units.
The next epic expansion will include dinosaurs, time machines and two new resource types. And that's just the beginning; eventually players will be able to blast off into space.
I’ve just added a Regal Realms expansion to Ironfell (indie, hex-tile, MMORTS). There are ten new units and two new Keep and Castle realms.
The next expansion for Ironfell - Regal Realms is a couple of weeks away, but here is some teaser information about it.
