Hey Damien, it is certainly great fun playing/testing, but which machine would it be ported to Classic or NG? Daniel Müßener did a sterling job on Tower57 port for NG Amiga's but I suspect it would need a lot of work from him to make it work well on NG's.

Our focus is for PC/Android/Nintendo Switch for the moment but once completed I could certainly see what it might look like on Classic and create a mockup. Bastich and I might consider though donating the assets to whoever might be interested

Thanks MageMaster

The controls are fully configurable to any joypad / joystick provided it has enough buttons.

Current joypad controls:
Left stick - Left, Right, Up, Down
A - Primary fire
B - Secondary fire
X - Flip / Turn Around
Y - Buy Upgrade

Current keyboard controls:
WASD - Left, Right, Up, Down
Right shift - Primary fire
Return - Secondary fire
Right Control - Flip / Turn Around
Space - Buy Upgrade

If you fast double tap in the direction you are facing the ship turbos also

There will be a demo available when the Kickstarter launches which will have all 3 stages of level 1.

IRIDIUM Kickstarter is now LIVE

We are very excited to let everyone know that our IRIDIUM game is now LIVE on Kickstarter. I think you all know the 3 main team members Bastich, Akira, and myself, all big Amiga fans.

Our Kickstarter is here https://tinyurl.com/yb92z6jx .

After this game is completed I'm also hoping that Bastich will share some info into an unreleased game on the Amiga (that I'm keen on helping him complete - which I believe is almost complete)

I like the sprites. They remind me of the weapon sprites from Descent, the 3D shooter game from Interplay. Was the name inspired by Iridion II?

I've not played "Decent" in a long time, great game

Never played "Iridion" before thou, the name is a play on one of the games that inspired our game "Uridium".

IRIDIUM 5 days to go till Kickstarter ends.



I have updated other Amiga forums (Amigaworld, Amigans and Amiga.org) about our game. EAB is our main forum so its hard to know if the info gets out there.

I didn't mention on the other sites but at this moment in time I'm working on a special copper/effect level for the game, hope to post update soon.
