Video game developer studio, Iron Galaxy Studios, has focused more upon creating partnerships with larger video game studios, enabling it to complete work on parts of much larger projects than it would have been unable to undertake alone. Some of the projects they worked on include: Marvel vs Capcom Origins, Tron: Evolution, Back to the Future and Bioshock 2 for PC.
Not only can you pick the brains of these game developers at Otronicon, you can also play their video games! Iron Galaxy’s booth will feature video games they worked on in addition to their full-sized Divekick arcade cabinet game.
Divekick, their original game, is the world’s first two-button fighting game. It distills the essence of the fighting game genre into just two buttons with no d-pad directional movement. Divekick’s focused gameplay demonstrates how much depth a single move actually has, and reinforces skills fundamental to the genre: mind games, spacing, timing and quick reactions. It sounds simple but Divekick is a fighting game deconstructed into its purest form!
