Ironcast is a puzzle-based strategy RPG from indie developer Dreadbit. 

Set in an alternative history  of 1880's Victorian England, take control of an Ironcasts, a 7 meter tall walking war machine, and take on the enemies of the British Empire by defending it from an invading force of Ironcasts.

Battles are fought by generating resource nodes which in turn drive the Ironcast's various weapons and systems. Spend your nodes wisely, however, as resources are often limited and the rougelike campaign mode has permadeath if you fail. With over 50 different weapons and items to equip, your Ironcast can pack a punch if you build it well, but may not last if your not careful. 

Featuring puzzle-based elements similar to Puzzle Quest, and inspired by the likes of Jules Verne and H.G Wells, Ironcast is a unique experience for those who play it, and is now available for the PC, Mac, and Nintendo Switch.
