After launching Ironcast on consoles last month, publishers Ripstone have got a sweet competition that gives you the opportunity to win one of these:


Come on, who wouldn’t want a steampunk console controller?! They look SWEET.

Ironcast stormed onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One earlier this month, combining turn based strategy combat with a rich, alternate 1880’s timeline. In true Ironcast style, the controllers up for grabs are hand designed and feature custom steampunk-esque leatherwork and studding.

So, you may ask, ‘How do I get my hands on one?’

To be in with the chance of winning either a PS4 controller OR an Xbox One controller, all you have to do is send us a design for your own unique war mech or Ironcast.

Sketch it, paint it, build it using Lego, design it in PhotoShop; do whatever it takes to bring your Ironcast to life!

The guidelines for submissions (there are only two) are:

– Each entry must specify which controller competition the entry is for. (PS4 OR Xbox One) Each entry can only be entered for one competition.
– Submissions must be emailed to or shared on Twitter using the hashtag #IroncastPS4 for the PS4 controller competition, or #IroncastXB1 for the Xbox One controller competition.

So all you need to do is design your own Ironcast mech. There are no restrictions on your creation either, so you can be as creative as your imagination lets you. Here’s my mech that I’ve made from stuff I found on my desk:


I don’t think there’s any point in anyone else entering – mine is clearly a masterpiece. You might as well try though… You can find out more on the Ripstone website by clicking this link.
