Steel Storm got an update on Steam !!!

Steel Storm got an update on Steam, which fixes Mac OS X sound issues and improves collisions on the terrain of Burning Sands.

This update was not tested with Mac OS X 10.5.8 because support for that particular OS X version is being dropped.

A free map and mission for Steel Storm are coming soon to Steam. Updates for other platform will be coming soon, stay tuned.


Steel Storm series WIKI and new DLC

I have decided that Steel Storm 2 needs a small prequel, SS:BR users need new cool map pack and Steam is very cool about that. Therefore, I have begun working on a map pack for SS:BR! Some of the new ideas for the art workflow will be used in Steel Storm 2 if successfully implemented in the new DLC. We are hoping for your support on this one! (that will help Steel Storm 2 development immensely)

One the other note, a grand manual for Steel Storm series incarnate in the form of WIKI is up and running at


Steel Storm 2 got a Wiki, SS:BR DLC on Desura

I just put together a foundation for full blown Steel Storm 2 Wiki.

Desura finally propped DLC to their service so now Desura users, who own Steel Storm there, can get a hold of the Weapon Pack DLC.

I am finding it really hard to get a hold of the people who bough Steel Storm: Burning Retribution to see about possible map pack DLC for the game, kinda prequel to the second installment. Any ideas?

New look for Steel Storm’s site

It's been a long time since the last update. We have been trying to find ways to raise some money so that we could expand out team and make new projects happen rather sooner. The reality of things is harsh. I feel that we have wasted a lot of time with that route and I feel that we could have delivered more content for Steel Storm: Burning Retribution.

Nevertheless, Kot-in-Action has been working diligently on two new games, Steel Storm 2 and Tomes of Mephistopheles and despite the setbacks in alpha funding, I am hoping for the best as always.

Yesterday I have updated Steel Storm: Burning Retribution's website with a new look and I added new videos and images to the Media section of the blog. I am brooding some plans for a new DLC for Steel Storm, which will be a map pack. It's still a possibility, although I am not going to make any promises for the release date.



Steel Storm Weapon Pack DLC is out!

Get it on Steam!
