White Whale Games
has released a trailer and seven screenshots
from God of Blades
, a 2.5D sidescroller that depicts a retro-fantasy, sword saga for iOS, PC, and Mac.
Players assume the role of a nameless spectral king standing resolute against the march of a devouring, void-crazed horde on a dying world. Wrenching this world from the grasp of oblivion, the player wields phantom blades forged from the legends and heritage of the vanishing planet. Emergent, physics-driven swordplay, procedurally generated nemeses, and persistent character development propel the player through lush environments crafted in the fashion of traditional Japanese narrative scrolls and 18th and 19th century moving panorama.
God of Blades is set for launch summer 2012.
