Iconoclasts – Makes Its Way To PS4, Vita, and PC in January, 2018
The year of 2017 may be almost over, but there are still plenty of surprises left and among them an incredibly long-awaited gem of a game that has been a work of passion and enthusiasm for the past 8 years. After nearly a decade in development, the Metroidvania inspired action-adventure game Iconoclasts is slated for release on January 23rd, 2018.
The game has been built from the ground up by one-man independent game developer Joakim Sandberg. Originally announced in 2010, Iconoclasts has been in slow but continuous development. Thanks to the help of BitFrost Entertainment and MP2 Games, the game is being ported and released to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC.
Iconoclasts takes place in a world where hobbies are illegal, and there is a tight degree of law and order. Players star as a young woman named Robin, a mechanic who has always wanted to help others but is shunned by her own mother for not having a certification. Robin discovers a golden wrench and uses it to fulfill her service to others. Suddenly, the world as she knows it is collapsing. The planet is dying and on the verge of collapse.
Robin will grab her wrench, her sidearm, and embark on an adventure throughout the planet to save it from impending disaster. Robin will meet friends and foe along the way, and learn the true meaning of faith, purpose, and the challenge of helping others.
The game takes inspirations from arcade classic and early 90’s adventure games, such as Super Metroid and Mega Man, featuring fast, tight gameplay and well over 20 bosses to conquer.
Iconoclasts is slated for release on January 23rd, 2018 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam.
