[Update]: Iron Harvest now has a free demo available, though only until June 22, 2020.

Iron Harvest is an upcoming real-time strategy game set in an alternate history version of the 1920s. As you might expect from the image alone, this offshoot of history will contain clunky but extremely deadly robots, heavily armored and surprisingly mobile bunkers, sword-wielding mechs, as well as variety of other imaginative technology.

While Iron Harvest is still in early alpha, the developers have recently shared a gameplay preview showing off some of the aforementioned mechs, as well as the base-building mechanics. Have a look, they're certainly a charming bunch:

I'll reserve my judgment for when Iron Harvest is much closer to completion, but from everything I've seen so far it does appear to be shaping up quite nicely. I especially love how slow, cumbersome and utilitarian the mechs look!While it's a small detail, it really adds a nice dose of realism and helps them feel like an actual part of the world.

How exactly all of this will turn out in the end, that remains to be seen, but we're certainly going to be in for a bit of a wait as Iron Harvest still has no official release date. The only thing I can really tell you is that it will be coming to Windows 10, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
