Ira is a cinematic adventure game spanning three acts. Act 1: Pilgrimage takes place in an alternate 1930’s America where an early technological revolution has pushed humankind to the red sands of the Martian surface, and picks up just as their next great push into the beyond is about to begin. Regardless of these advances, a global depression rages on. You play from the perspectives of the people who live and die in this world, from lowly Martian miners, to the people pulling the strings. Follow Ira on a journey that spans the void of space and time itself.


Ira came from humble beginnings, from 3 people working in a studio, above a garage, in the middle of nowhere Michigan. Ira’s first Kickstarter was not a success, but Ira gained loyal followers. In 2016 a second attempt was successful, due in part to an early development demo that was popular on Game Jolt, and with Let’s Players; over its lifetime garnering millions of views, and 1000’s of downloads / playthroughs. 


  • Explore a rich, lore based narrative across three acts in an alternate 1930’s space faring America. Play from unique character perspectives; from lowly miners of the Martian surface to corporate fat cats enjoying the view from on high.
  • Follow a story spanning across space and time, from Earth to the far off and mysterious Lithic System, years into the future.
  • Interactive storytelling using a custom dialogue, and icon system. The icon system is used to change charcter equipment and interactions, which effect the players interactions with the world.
  • Engage with the world by using the icon inventory system. Selecting your character slows down time giving you the opportunity to toggle on and off different character skills, and abilities. These abilities change the way you experience and interact with the world on your journey.
  • Atmospheric visuals immerse the player in the world of Ira.
  • Hauntingly beautiful soundscapes set the tone for player experiences.
