Warcraft III‘s mod scene is underappreciated. It brought MOBAs to the world with DotA, crystallised the modern tower defence, did a lot for wave survival modes, and had dozens of other weird multiplayer ideas and genres I’d still like to see brought back and expanded. So huzzah for The Red Solstice, a game unashamedly inspired by the old WC3 Night of the Dead mods.
It’s a top-down co-op survival shooter with co-op for up to eight players, about scavenging for supplies and exploding floods of awful monsters on Mars. And it’s now out on Steam Early Access.
