Seeing the Song of Iron trailer at E3, the game really spoke to me. It reminded me of Golden Axe from Sega with a blend of Limbo and Inside mixed in. I immediately followed Joe Winter, the solo developer, on Twitter as I wanted updates on his game:
“It may be hard to believe that Song of Iron was forged by a single developer! After two years of late night development, creating the story, animation, characters and more, this is a triumph as mystical as the game’s story itself.”
Song of Iron is possibly one of my favourite games of 2021. It has a perfect playtime with just the right amount of difficulty to leave you at times pulling your hair out and feeling a brilliant sense of accomplishment when you have killed an enemy or a boss. Song of Iron‘s music is a great accompaniment, the Nordic feel pulls you in and immerses you completely. As you’re going through the game you pick up powers which include faster running helps you jump over those big gaps, fire and electricity for your sword and arrows as well as my personal favourite: calling back your sword after you’ve thrown it into an enemies head. At just a couple of hours long, this comes highly recommended.Become a Patron!
