Our current status, and our new project.

Hi guys,

This is Jin. I apologize for being so quiet in recent months, and for this sudden announcement.

It’s been about three months since our announcement of the stoppage of the development of ArcheBlade. During those three months, we sold off pretty much all the stuff in the office, canceled some service contracts, and finally moved out of our old office. After a couple of weeks without any direction, my life as a game developer seemed to be no more, and days passed by meaninglessly.

But one day I came to realize that making games was all I wanted to do, and pretty much only thing I knew how to do.
I contacted my old pals from Codebrush Games, and persuaded them to come aboard one more time. Luckily, six of them were generous enough to accept my offer.

Not long after that, we started a team named “Fakedice”.

For about two months of time period, we fully dedicated our lives to working on a new game. We’re currently at a very early stage of development, and we felt that we have a responsibility to share the news with you guys.

The game’s called DICETINY, and here it is.



DICETINY is a digital board game mixed with RPG and CCG where you use the dice and the card deck to save the world from evil monsters.

You may be wondering, why board game all of sudden? Why something so different from ArcheBlade?

Well, just as ArcheBlade started from a simple idea suggested by one of our staff, DICETINY was also no exception. After numerous brainstorming and actual testing on a physical table board, we decided that it was the most fun one out of all the ideas that were suggested, and decided that the scope of the game was something we could give a shot at considering the small size of the team.

I really hope it piques your interest and that you will like this game. We’re planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign on October 8 2014. Your help will help us tremendously to develop the game as our financial resources are still very much limited, and the project is self-funded by the team, which means no paychecks.

I also want to tell you that I’m very aware that many of you have many requests in regard to ArcheBlade. But with more than half of our former members no longer with us, our hands are tied and the future of ArcheBlade is still very much unclear.
And some of you may be upset that we're moving on to a new project, and we totally understand you, but we believe that this is our best option for the future of our team, and maybe even for ArcheBlade. (One thing I can tell you is that we’re continually looking for any way to revive the game, and hope we can someday become successful enough to make a comeback.)

That's why we're asking for your help to support us with our Kickstarter campaign.

So I hope that this announcement clarifies our current status, and I want to finish off by saying, thank you for staying with ArcheBlade. I hope we can open a new chapter through this new project and you will be part of it.

Thanks,

Jin

Edit: We've pushed back our Kickstarter campaign to October 8, 2014.

Get ready for ArcheBlade:

Based on a Korean Fantasy Novel, ArcheBlade is a free-to-play PvP-based multiplayer action game in which users can either take sides and fight against the other team or fight for themselves depending on the map. Players choose one of several characters, each with their own unique fighting style and action combos.

ArcheBlade captures the essence of combo-based fighting games like Street Fighter or Tekken combined with online multiplayer match system. Rather than pressing shortcut keys mindlessly to use skills, players need to pay close attention to their character and their opponents’ moves in order to perform combos as well as block and avoid attacks all happening in real-time. Do you like fighting games? Do you enjoy non-stop action? Are you competitive? Then this game is for you.




Select a fighter of your style! Each with unique combos and fighting style, each character brings different game to the table. Find a character that matches your style in Training and perfect your skills. Please stay tuned as we’re adding more characters in the future.





With more than 500 items available, you can customize your character to your preference. People will definitely notice you when you have items on.




From Team Deathmatch and Capture the Base to Free for All and Team Last Man Standing, each game mode has a different goal to accomplish. One more thing to remember. Always watch your surroundings when you play in a map as you may get hit by a train, or lose a step and fall off the bridge. More game modes will be added in the future so please stay tuned.

Capture the Base
Work as a team and defeat the opposing side by capturing the bases scattered around in the map. Protect your bases or teammates when they’re capturing. Be on the lookout as you are capturing, there may be someone to interrupt you right at the end.

Team Last Man Standing
The team with the most round wins will prevail. Be careful as there are no respawns during rounds. There’s nothing like being the last survivor and deliver a win for your teammates at the end while they’re all watching you.

Free for All
No more friendship, just killing. Are you the type that prefers being a lone wolf? This is just for you. The rule is simple. The one who gets the most kills wins the match. Careful though as there are wolves lurking in the shadow ready to steal your kill.

Team Deathmatch
A team with more kills wins the match. To get a kill is the biggest contribution you can make to your team here. Be a support or that guy who’s always at the very front of battle. Whatever gets kills is good for the team.

Let me start by saying: THIS IS NOT A P2W GAME.

Now that's done, this game is a really fun and addicting fighting game based on your actual skill. The store items, wich can be bought with real or in-game money dont ad that many stats, so there is not an item that will make you OP, making the game a skill based game.

Pros:
-Good Music.
-Good Graphics (Anime art style).
-Easy to learn.
-Every character is different from any other character and every single one of them has a unique role in team gameplay.
-Wide range of matches, from 1 vs 1 to 7 vs 7 (including Deathmatch, TDM, Capture point and Round Match)
-Includes a Host Server exe so you can play with your friends in private.

Cons:
-There is no match making. You simply enter a server and if you're lucky its almost full.
-You need to stay in the lobby and wait for everyone to be "locked" wich means that in a 5 vs 5 match you need to wait for 5 people in both teams to be ready and actually start playing.
-Servers lag a lot. Even the server with lower ping have lag spikes from time to time.
-Every character needs to be bought for you to play with. They give you 3000 game money, enough to buy 2 characters (1400 each).
-There is very few maps and two of them are actually bugged.
-There is a character called Renoah (sniper) that has a unfair and OP ultimate that takes almost half the amount of hp every enemie has.

Rate: 7/10 The server and match making need to be improved a lot.

This game is pretty great if you like 3d action fighters, mixed with some MOBA aspects. One thing to note, this game is about timing and skill, not level nor equipment. And no, it is not a P2W game.

I've been playing this game quite a bit. It takes alot of practice to get the hang of things but once you do its lots of fun. Spaming your moves is only good agains new players, seasoned players will tear you apart (you might want to start blocking lol).

Currently my favorite map is the Bridge, which is basically a capture the point type map. Valle is my current favorite character. I would recomend this to anyone looking for a skill based arena fighter. Also like Ridika but I am horrible with her lol

The free to play model in this game is outstanding. In a game like this, I don't mind buying the characters for ingame points. And these points are easily to come by.
The shop is the biggest plus I can find in this game, since I don't care about skins or that kinda stuff AT ALL, I don't care about the fact that you have to buy them with real-life cash.

One thing though, the weapons. There aren't that many of them and they're for higher levelled people. And some of them aren't purchasable with in-game money, which is a downer. But they aren't overpowered or anything like that.

The servers are really buggy, they've crashed on me several times. Right before I win with a 12 killstreak, CRASH. It's annoying as all h*ll.

And servers are also misleading, it says that there's 10/10 people in. But in reality, there's none. They trick you into thinking the servers are full when they aren't. It's büllshït..

I also want to be able to view people's Steam profiles by clicking on their name/profile picture. Like in any other multiplayer Steam game with a scoreboard.


And the gameplay, it's a combo-based MOBA style fighting game. That's about it. It's fun and addicting.

Update (Got nothing else to do, so why not?)

The support for this game has been dropped.. Official servers are down. No more updates.
Now it's not even worth looking at :/

Fun game with some neat characters. Block and strifing is huge. Some character are better in groups. I think character are not that unbalanced. Only thing I don't like is some of items are bought with cash only, so its p2w later but some you can out skill those people still and game does need support it self. The prices seem bit high also. Takes bit to earn enough to buy new characters also.
