Sharpen Your Swords in Preparation for this Delightful New RPG, Launching Q4 2022 on Steam, with Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS Versions Releasing in 2023.
Today, acclaimed publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Zeth are revealing something special for RPG lovers: the brand new indie title Bound by Blades. Launching in Q4 2022 on Steam and releasing later on Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS devices, Bound by Blades is a boss-rush-style RPG with an emphasis on challenging combat and crafting. Embark on a journey through the magical world of Ashmyr, a once thriving land now left desolate and teeming with Ilcyon, bloodthirsty enemies scattered across the globe. Defeat formidable bosses, meet imaginative NPCs, and learn the lore behind Ashmyr’s mysterious downfall in this charming yet challenging game!
Bound by Blades follows the core gameplay of slaying bosses, harvesting their remains, and crafting gear. While not as hardcore as the genre kings, Bound by Blades offers a fun, approachable, and more casual experience for players interested in the boss-rush mechanic with a heaping helping of cute and cozy RPG mechanics. A passion project from solo developer Zeth, Bound by Blades aims to introduce a much more welcoming entry to boss-rush titles. Told through an enchanting digital-sketchbook art style, follow the young Bound through their journey in Ashmyr to learn about the beginnings of the vile Ilcyon and other mysterious entities.
