The lights are on
Croatian developer Ironward’s Co-op focused tactical survival game The Red Solstice is available for early access right now on Steam, and it’s 40 percent off for a limited time. The PC title, published by Nkidu games, is also available in a “buy three get one free” four pack to encourage cooperative play.
The Red Solstice takes place on the sci-fi inspired Mars of the distant future. The game is named after a great storm sweeping across the planet’s surface.
Players choose from eight different classes with customizable equipment and battle across randomly generated levels. It is possible to play the survival co-op game with up to eight squad mates, and the game will reward strategic teamwork and tactical thinking.
The Red Solstice is available on Steam at $14.99 for now (regular price will be $24.99.) The 4-pack bundle costs $44.99. For more on the cooperative tactical game, check out the screenshots in the gallery below.

How about giving us the early access for free and then charging us full price for the game once its completed.
Looks interesting, but I really don't think they should be charging for early access, since I've never heard of them, and $25 seems pretty steep.
I expect them to make very little money off this game, unless it sees some good sale prices.
Reminds me of Helldivers. Except with a lot less polish. Here's hoping they can spit shine it up a bit as development continues, because this might be my new favorite genre.
