About Kingdom Rush finally going free.
It’s been a long run.
The first Kingdom Rush was released on Armorgames.com on July 28th, 2011… it was a Thursday. We were both excited and terrified, since we were treading on uncharted waters. But we were also far from done. Because we had been also working on a mobile version and so, the iPad version would be released on December 19th, 2011. The Android version would take quite a while, since we were still a very small team of only 5 people, but we eventually released it on May 15th, 2013. The Steam version was released on the next year, January 6th, 2014.
During all this time, we keep growing, learning, and we were also working on the sequels.
But the first Kingdom Rush remains our most recognisable, most lauded, most played game. It was the game that served as our learning ground for all the things that will come later. We not only learnt about making games, we also acquired the business savviness necessary to survive in this Industry… even though we made quite a few mistakes along the way.
That’s because the history of Kingdom Rush as a game is also ,inextricably, the history of Ironhide as a studio.
The game has grown just as we grew. And it got better just as we got better at game developing.
Kingdom Rush is the game that allowed us to expand, to try new things, to be able to show up to work motivated and happy each and every day. It gave us the privilege of doing what we love. So we figured that we could give something back. Earlier this year, we put the Android version on Google Play for free. We are now making it free for iOS and Amazon. Meaning that from now on, all the mobile versions of the first Kingdom Rush will be free to play forever
A free Kingdom Rush is only a very small nod towards all our supporters. There are a lot of good things to come, so you better stay tuned!
Thank you all for your love and support.
