Brand new indie title Bound by Blades is launching in the fourth quarter of the year 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.
Combat, craft and blades
Bound by Blades follows the core gameplay of slaying bosses, harvesting their remains, and levelling/crafting gear. While not being as hardcore as the genre kings, Bound by Blades has promised to offer a fun and more casual approach to players who are looking to experience boss-rush gameplay.
Created by solo developer Zeth, the title is a passion project aimed at giving players a more accessible entry into boss-centred RPGs. 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.
