The Red Solstice is a unique top-down shooter. Unlike games such as Hotline Miami, The Red Solstice is currently focused on multiplayer (that is all that is available tight now in the Early Access build) and it is more than just a simple top-down action-filled shooter. Touting itself as an 8-player tactical co-op survival game, you are tasked with surviving a one-hour mission. During the hour long action-fest you will be given a series of randomized objectives and then it is up to you to survive. Some of the tasks that you will be given would be to set up turret defense or to gather a specific supply to defending an area for a set time against an onslaught of aliens and zombies. As you fight back the hordes of baddies and complete objectives, you will earn experience points which will then level you up, awarding you with new weapons, armor kits, ammo types and secondary gear options. As I mention, The Red Solstice is not your run-of-the-mill shooter and I was fortunate enough to spend some time in the Early Access build.
