While Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her codename defusing bombs for the Global Defense Force, when evil transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes the members of his cybernetic cult onto the streets of Neo DC, she knows it’s time to start causing explosions instead of preventing them.
Her quest to slay Heskel leaves a trail of carnage throughout huge, multi-path levels filled with gigantic explosions, more secret areas than we can count, and inhuman foes behind every corner. There’s no regenerating health here; stop taking cover and start running and gunning!
Ion Fury (formerly Ion Maiden) is a 2019 First Person Shooter developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D REALMS. Ion Fury runs on a modified version of Ken Silverman's Build Engine and is the first original commercial game to utilize the engine in 19 years, the previous being "World War II Gi". Ion Fury is built on EDuke32, a fork of Build engine which supports modern operating systems while also implementing a broader range of features. Three of the greatest FPS games of the 90's were built on the original build engine, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood, all of which have all recieved re-releases as of late, so if you're in the mood for some 90's kickbacks with balls to the wall visceral action you can't do much better than looking into any of these games. As somebody who grew up with these games as a child, seeing more games like this, Dusk, and Amid Evil coming out with a focus on intertwined, complex maps and hectic, meaty gunplay feels like a dream come true!
