Indie Wonderland: Iron Brigade

Continuing on with what seems to have become a sort of impromptu clearing-my-backlog month, this week’s review target is Iron Brigade, from the fine folks at honorary-indie Double Fine. Given the relative abundance of ‘Double Fine bundles’ on your indie games sales websites of choice, it’s entirely likely I picked up this game during one of the many times I guilt-tripped myself into buying Psychonauts. I own Psychonauts so much, you guys. I own it like five times. And that’s not even counting my two PS2 disc copies.

Anyway, Iron Brigade. I know nothing about it. Apparently it’s a fancy tower defense game of some sort? There’s really only one way to find out; reader, I’ll hope you’ll take this fact-finding trip with me.

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, low. Mechanical, medium.)

After the break: Is Iron Brigade fancy? Pretty much. Does it involve tower defending? Quite a lot. Did I misspell it ‘bridage’ a little under ten times already in the first draft? You betcha!
