Latest Updates from Our Project:

All social stretch goals unlocked!
almost 2 years ago – Wed, Mar 02, 2022 at 10:51:54 PM

Hello friends,

In this update we talk about new stretch goal Solo mode, new pledge addition - Retailer Pledge, and social stretch goals.

Solo mode stretch goal.

Solo mode has always been in our stretch goal list as a must-do, and given we have received many comments asking for this, we've decided to add it as our next stretch goal at $150K! 

Solo mode will come with a card for each scenario (including stretch goals). Pick a scenario, choose which team you want to play, and for the other team you will use the corresponding solo card, which will instruct you on what and how the other team behave on their turns.

Retailer Pledge.

We've had many retailers showing an interest in backing the game, so we have decided to add this option and offer Retailer Pledge: 9 Iron Forest games + all stretch goals and social stretch goals.

*Please note: if you as a retailer wish to receive the enamel pin with every game, make sure you subscribe to our newsletter (we will be cross-referencing this in the PM). 

All social stretch goals unlocked!

You have been fantastic, thanks to every one of you who pitched in to unlock all the social stretch goals, making Iron Forest even richer with all the goodies!

Mecha special ability cards (8 in total, one for each mecha) is like a mini expansion. Each mecha has an ability that echoes its physical appearance and theme (for example, DRON3 lets you scout ahead through your activation deck). If you choose to play with the mini expansion, you can use the mecha ability card when you've activated that mecha. 

We bet many of you have been waiting for this moment.. ICECOOL (or ICECOOL2) and IRON FOREST joins forces! 

Mashup Scenario will be played by three teams (3rd team being the 4 penguins from ICECOOL) and ICECOOL game board is placed right next to Iron Forest game board. Iron Force is trying to collect cooling materials by melting ICECOOL boxes, and they do so with launching dice into the ICECOOL boxes. If the dice sum reaches certain amount, the box is then removed from the game (melted). Meanwhile, Animal Clans and Penguins are working together to stop this. If by the end of the 2nd round 3 of the 5 ICECOOL boxes have been melted, Iron Force wins. If not - Animal Clans and Penguins win.

Right now the scenario is playable for 2-5 players, but as we are in the process of development, the player count could change.

Happy flicking!

Hello friends,

New review video: Max and Doolin (Tablenauts) takes on an Iron Forest trick shot challenge,  watch the video to find out who wins! 

We had fun watching this trick shot challenge, that we had an idea of creating a game mode around it. What do you think, would you like to see one?

Social stretch goals update.

Only 7 more #socialmechas and 10 more Instagram followers to go.. you CAN do it! For some inspiration, here's little flicking fun Jānis did over the weekend:

This is the last week of the campaign, so spread the word and let's make those stretch goals unlock!

Happy flicking!

It's unlocked - don't step on it!

Hello friends,

That’s four stretch goals down and we have reached $135K!

We are super excited to show you all the other cool stretch goals we have in store for you, just like the Loot Box that will unlock at $170K. 

But right now you've unlocked a new Power-Up card - PROXIMITY MINE, that you actually place on the game board. Simply place the PROXIMITY MINE card face up anywhere you like inside the box where your active mecha is, either before or after you make your move. Then, the next time a mecha touches that card, they’ll take a hit! Now, as with any explosives, you have to be careful - your own mechas can be affected by this device if they get blasted into it, so use it wisely! 

With another stretch goal under our belts, it's time for another Scenario! In this Scenario your mechas get weaponized and dice are used as bullets, which you will flick at opposing team's mechas therefore damaging them 💥

 Thank you and happy flicking!

Another social stretch goal unlocked and a new preview!

Hello friends,


In Free For All game mode each player (and up to 8 players) takes the control of a single mecha. Everyone gets their personal tasks that they need to complete. The first player to complete a certain amount of the objectives wins the game. Objectives include area control, KO'ing other mechas, going through two openings at once during the same activation, going to a certain box, going through a certain opening (door or a hole). 

Thank you all for making this happen!


As promised, here's a short description on Mechaball Scenario.

In Mechaball Scenario your aim is to score as many goals as possible in two rounds. Similarly to soccer (football) in human world, the "ball" (Bombshell) starts in the middle of the lower level, and you have to bump into it with your mecha to pass it to another mecha. And just like playing any other Iron Forest scenario, you can always flick or launch. 

To score a goal, you need to get the Bombshell up on the upper level and hit it through the opponent's opening. And, of course, you get to use all Power-Up cards and damage the opponent's mechas. This  is Iron Forest after all!


Here's another opinion on Iron Forest by Plumpy Thimble (Daniel Robison), where he makes some good points about playing the game with kids.
