Ion Maiden is a 2019 first person shooter video game developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms. It is a prequel to the top-down action game Bombshell. Ion Maiden runs on a modified version of Ken Silverman's Build engine, and is the first original commercial game to utilize the engine in 19 years, the previous being World War II GI.
In Ion Maiden, the player assumes the role of Shelly "Bombshell" Harrison, a bomb disposal expert aligned to the Global Defense Force. Dr. Jadus Heskel, a transhumanist cult leader, unleashes an army of cybernetically-enhanced soldiers on the futuristic city of Neo D.C., which Shelly is tasked with fighting through.
