8-player co-op strategy/RPG set on Mars during "The Red Solstice"

In The Red Solstice you control one of the eight space marines that are
trying to find out what happened to human colonies on Mars during the huge
storm called The Red Solstice. The mix of a dark and gritty Science Fiction
setting and addictive adrenaline filled gameplay – based on advanced tactics and
quick decisions at the same time – makes for a great atmosphere and gameplay


  • 8 player co-op multiplayer
  • adrenaline filled and quick tactics focused gameplay
  • radically different gameplay with each of 8 different classes
  • experience based character advancement system
  • set on Mars during the huge storm called The Red Solstice
  • dark and gritty survival Sci-Fi story and setting
  • fight infinite amounts of monsters during ~1 hour sessions
  • scavenge for supplies, fortify the base, defend, evacuate
  • Challenging Boss Fights

The game takes place in about one hour gameplay sessions during which
players need to scavenge for supplies, find and fortify the base and then
defend it from an almost infinite amount of monsters and evacuate survivors. An
experience based character advancement system, as well as advancing your space
marines equipment during the sessions is another fundamental part of the gameplay.

The full version of The Red Solstice was released and is available on Steam! Store.steampowered.com

We've been in Early Access for some time now, and it was worth it.

Check out the brand new The Red Solstice launch trailer:

The Red Solstice is a tactical, squad-based survival game set in the distant future on Mars, playable in single-player or with up to 8 players in cooperative online multiplayer.

Roam freely over huge maps, complete randomized objectives and deal with surprise events that keep you on the edge of your seat.

Survive and conquer by any means necessary. Get stronger every time. Level up to unlock new weapons and abilities. Try to survive the storm.



- Up to 30-hour-long campaign

- Story-driven missions with high replayability

- Build, lead, and upgade your own squad of 4 marines

- Slow down time in tactical mode and plan your moves carefully


- experience the multiplayer atmosphere alone

- control AI allies just like in singleplayer

- learn, practice, master the strategies


- Up to 8 player co-op survival experience

- 6 large maps to explore

- Randomly generated events and missions

As promised, we have prepared The Red Solstice themed combic book with a storyarc that chronologically fits before the story of the singleplayer campaign. After both the comic and singleplayer, you can explore the rest of the story either in the multiplayer mode with some friends or survival mode which provides a similar experience as multiplayer only with AI allies you can control.

Get it from the downloads sections here on indiedb.com, or directly from our web:

We're considering of putting team AI inside for multiplayer, have to explore this once the main systems are done.

Singleplayer might be there on the release, depends on how much money we manage to gather from early alpha, all we get is going straight in development of the game.

It's already been greenlit I think it would be much better to go on Kickstarter and support them that way.
