Description

The Lone Blade is a 3D platformer where you are a soul trapped in a sword. The game takes place in the ruins of a world that once was yours. In order to redeem yourself, you will have to go through deserts, canyons, and temples... to the highest mountain. instead of being a human or human-like character, you embody a sword. The main interest of being a sword is exploring new ways of moving around and overcoming obstacles. Jump, dash, spin or spike to the ground and walls, in other words create your own path. The game takes place in the ruins of a world that once was yours, immersing the player in an uncanny universe: giants and folks trapped in the sand, humongous gates, staring eyewalls... The game is meant to be challenging, but not unfair or frustrating. The difficulty is a direct reflection of the game lore: the character need of redemption, and the struggle that it implies.

History

Everything started in november 2020 when Hugo came up with a really weird game concept : “Let’s make a game where you would play as a sword instead of playing with a sword”. Since we both like to try out stuff and original concept, it didn’t took us long before we got started with some prototypes.

Features

  • Unique Platformer: Jump dash spin as a sword in this 3D platformer
  • Uncany World: Ascend throughout this fallen civilisation
  • Memorable Soundtrack: Vocal/orchestral/Epic
  • Environmental Storytelling: Discover a world ruined by the wrath of the gods
  • Character Redemption Arc: Punished by the gods, the greedy one was locked up in the blade, his ascent will be his redemption
