A bloody and explosive hands-on video impression with Ion Maiden

February 28, 2018 1 min read

Over the weekend I got to play an early preview build of Ion Maiden, the latest retro-inspired FPS from 3D Realms and Voidpoint games. That's right, the same folks behind Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and who helped birth the FPS genre by publishing Wolfenstein 3D.

Although, it almost feels wrong saying “retro-inspired” when it comes to Ion Maiden. Because I'd argue it isn't just “inspired” -- it's retro to its very core. It's running on the Build engine, the same engine that powered those original 3D Realms classics and also my personal favorite from Monolith Productions, Blood.

Ion Maiden aims to capture the brilliant and bloody run-and-gun action of '90s FPS games that made politicians fear for the sanity of children everywhere...and it does so with gusto!
