Ion Maiden

Build engine is back and with it Ion Maiden! Get ready for classic first-person shooter full of guns, blood, gore and explosions! All wrapped in a retro coat!

Ion Maiden laughs at the idea of mandatory checkpoints and straight paths through shooting galleries. But, just because this is a true old-school first-person shooter doesn’t mean we've ignored all the good new stuff the last two decades have brought. Headshots? Hell yeah. More physics and interactivity? You betcha. Widescreen, controller support, and Auto Saves? 3D Realms and Voidpoint have taken the best of both worlds and cooked it all into a bloody stew.

“Ion Maiden is the true inheritor of Duke Nukem 3D's crown”
-PC Gamer

“These little interactive details and the gorgeous hand-crafted pixel art are a fine example of how the Build Engine can still look so distinct and beautiful in its own right. It's special in an industry striving for photo-realism. Throw all of this in with an ass-kicking midi soundtrack and Ion Maiden has the potential of becoming another instant classic and a fine addition to the Build Engine library of games”

“I can't wait to play ION MAIDEN - what a great idea. Make a Duke Nukem 3D-like 90's build-engine shooter that looks pixel-perfect.”
-John Romero
