The Red Solstice is a tactical, 8-player, co-op survival game set in the distant future on Mars.
One game session can last up to one hour, during which players can roam freely over huge maps, completing randomized objectives and dealing with random events. The goal is to try to survive and conquer by any means necessary. Get stronger every time. Level up to unlock new weapons and abilities. Try to survive the storm.
Take the Lead: Issue commands and set waypoints and objectives for your friends as you outsmart and outgun your way through the derelict domiciles of Tharsis.
Play Your Way, Together: With support for 8-player co-op, play as one of 8 distinct, customizable classes. Each with unique abilities and traits.
Odd Jobs: Tackle an onslaught of randomly generated events with just one hour to make your mark. From zone defense to supply retrieval, you’re never short of enemies to kill and objectives to complete.
Earn and Learn: Kill to earn experience points and unlock new abilities and classes. Heal allies, deploy turrets, launch grenades, set traps and much, much more.
Game NOT Over, Man: Killing ain’t easy. Drive back untold Martian horrors in multiple modes, maps and difficulties and get stronger every time. Even if you perish.

Great potential, but currently not deeply developedkevin6040 | July 21, 2014 | See all kevin6040's reviews »
Before I say anything, I want to state that the game is not yet complete, and therefore my review is of the incomplete version on July 21 2014. I can see great potential, but beware as many beta/alpha games I have bought were never finished or took a long time to complete once the developer started racking in the money. The game is very similar to alien swarm. Top down shooter with up to 8 players. Right now, it is not very user friendly. Yes, there is a campaign to show you how to use basic controls, but does not mention or teach people how to use items, or that energy is needed to level up your abilities in game. There is no campaign, and you cannot play a private game with your friends (game is always open to public), and difficulty scaling is too high even when on the easiest difficulty. Currently only has one mode, which is survival. Because of this, I cannot in good conscience recommend this game at 15 dollars, until at least a few of these issues are resolved.
