About this project
The super hero team that had sworn to defend Iron City decided they they've been working too hard and deserve a vacation… So that basically leaves all the money, jewels, and anything else of value in the city up for the taking…
You get to play as one of the most intense and hardcore super villains ever conceived, where you’re mission is to ravage Iron City for as much loot as you possibly can.
Use power-ups and hire mercenaries (Insanely powerful unlockable characters) to help rob the city blind before the heroes return from their trip...
But be warned, the city is not totally defenseless: The police have been armed with crates of TNT, Howitzer missiles, electrified laser fences, and Molotov cocktails to try and take you down.
Iron City Rampage will feature over a dozen awesome and unique playable characters, including:
- A Berzerk Gorilla With A Jetpack
- Flying Great White Shark
- Self aware Demented Robot
- Escaped Mental Patient
- Mad Scientist
- A Demon Train Powered By The Souls of It's Victims
- A Twisted Evil Clown
- Masked Mexican Wrestler
- Mafia Crime Lord
- Fire Spirit
- Demon Biker From Hell
- Mythological Sea Demon
- Death Himself!
The game we want to make is very humble by modern blockbuster game standards (and even iOS game standards) but it is still way beyond the ability of a small start-up to fund by itself. After having seen the success of so many awesome games on Kickstarter, we've decided that this would be the best place to turn to get our dream game in your hands.
Crowd sourcing to fund creative content represents truly profound change to the status quo. Kickstarter based crowd funding will allow us to create the game on our terms, and bring it to you in the fasted and most cost effective means possible.
We hope that Iron City Rampage is a creative concept you want to help make into a reality and we thank your consideration and support.
Right off the bat we will be supporting the iPad from day one. As we get closer to (or exceed our funding goal) we will be making an iPhone version of the game, and then an Android version. We want to make sure everyone can get their hands on Iron City Rampage, but since we've seen just how beautiful the game looks on the iPad, we've decided to start there.
Here's a quick look at just some of the prizes you will earn yourself for helping to fund the development of this game:
*Note - These are not the final images of your prizes. These are merely for demo purposes only. The finalized images will be uploaded as we complete the designs. Trust me, they will blow these samples out of the water.
Level 1: A special edition HD desktop wallpaper for your PC or Mac.
Level 2: You'll get the desktop wallpaper as well as several iOS optimized wallpapers for your iPhone or iPad. Your name will also be added to the games credits.
Level 3: You'll receive a free copy of the game the day it is released, as well as the above prizes.
Level 4: For a $25 pledge, you’ll receive a handcrafted download link to the complete digital musical soundtrack. Warning: we are not responsible for the theme music getting stuck in your head. But we do sympathize. Plus, you’ll get all of the above prizes as well.
Level 5: Game, Music, and a Shirt: A $40 dollar pledge gets you digital copies of the game and soundtrack plus a specially designed t-shirt, exclusive to Kickstarter backers. These shirts will feature the gorgeous high quality design work you'd expect from Iron City Rampage. (Please add $15 dollars for international shipping.) You'll also be receiving all the previous perks as well.
Level 6: A $50 pledge gets you a PDF file, suitable for printing, of “The Art of Iron City Rampage,” a book of production drawings, concept art, the games comic book and high-res game art used to bring the villains of the game to life. The usual adjectives are “lavish,” “fine art quality,” and “gorgeous,” we just weren’t sure where to stick them. Plus you’ll get all previous reward tiers!
Level 7: Time To Get Serious: A pledge of $65.00 will get you a high quality custom printed coffee mug from the game... The digital art book, T-Shirt, Digital soundtrack, your name in the credits, and free copy of the game the day it is released. Phewwww, that's a mouthful.
Level 8: Forget about just receiving the digital goods. For a pledge of $95.00 We will send you the soundtrack and art book right to your mailbox. You will also receive a limited edition signed and numbered poster from the game. (Please add $15 dollars for international shipping.)
Level 9: Party People Pack: We're about to bring the party right to your door. On top of everything from the previous levels, you'll also be receiving a collection of shot glasses, coasters, mugs and a flask. All from the game, and delivered right to your door. (Please add $20 dollars for international shipping.)
Level 10: You will be immortalized: On top of the digital soundtrack, art book, wall papers and game; our world-class artist will immortalize you by turning you in to a character in Iron City. You can choose to be a hero, villain or citizen, and our artist will make it happen!
Level 11: You're in The Game! This will be your opportunity to become a playable character in Iron City Rampage 2.0! We will work with you to create a character based on you, and then add you to the game as a playable character in our first major update. You will also receive an autographed and framed poster of your character to show off for all eternity. (Please add $20 dollars for international shipping.)
So, in summary, this is an opportunity to be a key part of bringing one of the coolest iOS games in videogame history to life. Better than we could do on our own. You will play an important role in making Iron City Rampage a monstrous success, while also getting to earn yourself some killer gifts along the way.
We're incredibly happy to be working on a project that's so close to our hearts, and we're thrilled that we've got the opportunity to do all the cool/stupid/fun stuff that we've discussed and planned over the years. We hope that you're excited at the prospect of being instrumental in bringing this game to life. Thank you very much for looking, and thank you IMMENSELY for your pledge!

Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges will be making sure that we have the coolest playable and unlockable characters you've ever imagined. Our artists and animators are working around the clock to make sure you can't just pick a single favorite.
This is a crazy large project for a three-person team. We have self-funded this project from the start, and now that we have the core functionality working, it's all about expanding the features and making it the best game possible.
With your help we can become a much larger team, and do amazing things together. Join us!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
