Title: The Sinister Blade
Developer: Sakura Asano
What type of game is it?
What’s the 30 second elevator pitch?
Fight your way through the time of the Bushido, in order to try and free your sword from it’s sinister curse.
What do we like most about it?
The art style is absolutely amazing, the cell shaded, heavily shadowed environment, and the heavily inspired combatants. It looks really good in motion as well; however I am a tad concerned for the gameplay, as we only see one combo attack and a dodge on show when it comes to moves and manoeuvres on show.
As such, it’s one to cautiously watch. If the game includes a mass of environments, lots of enemy types, and a decent combo set then it will no doubt do well, but, with such a meagre description on it’s GL page it’s easy to dismiss the game because of the limited content on show.
When’s it due?
The Sinister Blade’s greenlight page is lacking in any real detail, there is no rough release date listed, and only the default Windows PC selected for formats.
