Ripstone Round Up March 2015
01st April 2015
March has been and gone in the blink of an eye. Ripstone has featured on Granada Reports, we’ve launched Ironcast on PC and travelled across the Atlantic and the US. While we were in the states, we took three amazing titles to two glorious events with developers Dreadbit and Golden Ruby Games.
Our first stop was PAX East in Boston, where we exhibited steampunk mech combat game; Ironcast (which is out now on Steam) and spooky action platformer; Extreme Exorcism (coming soon to PC, PS4, Xbox One). We were in attendance with Daniel Leaver of UK based indie developer Dreadbit and Mike Christatos and Andy Wallace of New York based indie’s Golden Ruby Games.
Then it was time to don our Stetsons and venture over to Austin in Texas for SXSW, where we exhibited Ironcast, Extreme Exorcism and Pure Hold’em.
We had an overwhelmingly positive response to all three games while we were at PAX East and SXSW and can’t thank those enough who took the time to stop by at the stands and play. We were all suitably dressed and looking dapper too, thanks in large part to Phaze Clothing – so we’d like to give a special thank you to those guys as well!
Check out the photos from both events here.
If you didn’t manage to attend, you can even check out the devs giving their demos on the show floor, for both Ironcast and Extreme Exorcism.
During PAX East and SXSW we were also running a competition along with Dreadbit and Golden Ruby Games. Players were encouraged to Tweet/ Facebook/ Instagram their booth photos along with hashtags #Ironcast and #Extreme Exorcism. We’re pleased to finally be able to announce the winners for both contest and share their winning photos here:
Congratulations @victory0901 and @jimmyforge who won with these beauties:
A huge thanks to all those who took part – we’ll be attending more events this year and hosting more competitions, so keep your eye on our social media feeds for the latest news.
War is coming to the Xbox & PlayStation Stores
26th March 2015
We're delighted to announce that Dreadbit’s steampunk mech combat title is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation®3 & PlayStation®4.
As esteemed Commanders of the Consortium of Merit, players take control of their own 7 metre tall Ironcast – each towering construct bursting with advanced Victorian era weapon systems and electrical shields. Players must face off against an invading enemy force in order to defend 1880's Victorian England.
Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast's various weapons and systems. Players must choose how to spend these nodes wisely, either offensively in order to cripple and destroy their opponents, or defensively, if they suspect a barrage of incoming weapons fire is due.
After launching Ironcast on PC, Mac and Linux via Steam and witnessing fans overwhelmingly positive reactions first hand at recent events like PAX East in Boston and SXSW in Austin – everyone at Dreadbit and here at Ripstone are looking forward to bringing Ironcast to Xbox One and PlayStation fans across the globe.
“Watching gamers playing and reacting to Ironcast at recent events was incredible – we knew that we’d developed a game that players wanted to play. We’ve been completely overwhelmed by the positive feedback we’ve received so far and we’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing the game to PlayStation and Xbox One fans worldwide” – Daniel Leaver, Dreadbit.
Although Ironcast is Dreadbit’s debut title, the dev team are no strangers to AAA game development. The team’s Lead Designer and founder; Daniel Leaver was a Senior Designer on Media Molecule’s Tearaway and LittleBIGPlanet series before forming Dreadbit – and is now making the game he’s always wanted to make.
New Consortium Commanders can watch the launch trailer here: http://goo.gl/Wg6QKZ and for those brave souls without a moment to lose, the game is available to download on Steam and the Humble Store now.
Good luck, Commander. Britain is behind you!
For more information on Ironcast take a look at the latest dev diary on Dreadbit’s website and read the latest about the PS4 version of Ironcast on the Official PlayStation blog.

The Pure Hold’em Open Beta has landed on Xbox One!
25th March 2015
We’re pleased to announce that the Pure Hold’em Open Beta is now live and available to download on Xbox One. We’d like to encourage as many players as possible to download and play the game, while it’s still available!
If you’d like to provide us with any feedback, we’d be truly grateful if you could take the time to complete the optional Pure Hold’em Survey. Your feedback is extremely important to us and could aid VooFoo Studios in shaping the game going forward.
Pure Hold’em is newest addition to the Pure series and it’s due to arrive on PlayStation® 4, PC and Xbox One this summer. The game is only being beta tested on Xbox Live as it represents a good environment to ensure services will run effectively at launch – no matter which platform the game is played on. This is something that we'd like to test thoroughly prior to launch, so we’d like to invite as many Xbox One fans as possible to take part so we’re able to push the servers to the maximum.
Feel free to spread the word on Twitter using the hashtag #PureHoldem.
There’s only one question you’ll need to ask yourself…are you all in?
