Tribute Games’ Steel Assault Announced


The studio behind Flinthook and Mercenary Kings, Tribute Games, has been working with Zenovia to create their next title: Steel Assault.

In this title, players will take control of the resistance soldier Taro Takahashi, who is on a revenge mission against the dictator that has lorded over the ashes of America.

Much like other games from the studio, Steel Assault will feature dynamic, fluid side-scrolling combat that features grappling-hook traversal mechanics through the use of a zipline. Detailed pixel art (optimized for CRT screens) is paired with FM-synthesized tunes for the ultimate 16-bit experience.
