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.

Archeblade what a great idea this game was, reminds me of smash bros but in a PvP MMO styled arena and with Anime characters.

I would have loved to see this game go further in development, I came here after the development had already met it's end and I already think thats a true shame because this game had so much potential.

Even whats left this game is easly one of my currently most valued games to kill time on.

Archeblade is run by the comunity now server wise so you can useually find games with good ping for you.

Highly recomend trying Archeblade it's a good game.

Though the gameplay is very fun and unlike most fighting games this one has gear-up option (luv it <3), i deleted it like 2 weeks after downloading.
First of all, combat system is a bit garbage: attacks give you such inertion you won't stop until finishing the move to say in simpliest, meaning this game is based not on fast reaction and speed but on timing and strategy. Meanwhile you do these moves opponnent just walks to side or kills you, that's amazing too. Combat special moves are hard to do too, combinations react 1/10 times and most of time using only mouse buttons is best strategy.
Though this game is a bit flawed in mechanics, i can see that it kinda prevents the f*ckhead-jumper tactics.

The good thing about this game is that like in Mortal Kombat, it charges up Rage when hitting others to do special moves. Though they are crappy most of time, 1-2 characters only have good moves for Rage.

The game is fun overall, style is really uplifting and game may be fun for combat lovers.

I personally play MOBAs like LoL and DoTA
And say

This game is donkey balls. I wouldnt trade... actually I WOULD trade my left testicle in order to go back in time and make sure this game was never developed. I hate it. I hate it more than Tobey Maguire's version of Spiderman. This game gave me aggressive 3rd world diseases. Only play it if you hate yourself, puppies, and you mother.

So, with what should I start? One of the worst "F2P" games I´ve ever launched. It doesn´t even work. Graphics, customization and game-style is really, really bad. I thought it will be funny, relaxing game...but i´s the opposite. So frustrating and depressive that I´ve closed the game after few minutes.

I don´t recommend this, but you can try it. It´s at least free...

As a veteran who has played the game for... 36 minutes: really silly controls, rubberbanding made aiming melee attacks much harder than it needed to be, and then a hacker joined the lobby I was in.

Another 3D fighting game, another time to screw things up with a poorly written review by myself. This game is most likely the first fighting game I've ever reviewed so take this with a grain of salt.

Lets start with the game itself. ArcheBlade is a three dimensional, ffa (free-for-all) fighting game, one that I've recently found. The game is in my opinion a 3D, third-person, highly skill based Mortal Combat (I know that Mortal Combat takes a lot of skill as well). ArcheBlade is (dumb moment, you have been warned) free-to-play, but if a person wants to get all 14 characters early or get the all access pack you need to pay a petty amount of money (9,99€ for the all access pack).

And since I've mentioned the characters, lets get to them for a while. As stated before there are a total of 14 playable characters, each with their own playstyle and combos. At the start of the game the player will recieve a total of 3000 Meceta (gold) to buy characters. You can only buy two since each character costs abut 1400 Meceta, which in my opinion is somewhat boring, seeing as it takes quite some time to get enough Meceta points to buy another character.

Moving on to gameplay. As I stated before, ArcheBalde requires a whole lot of skill, something that will be noticed when playing your first online match. There are no crosshairs that helps with aiming (except with one character whose name alway eludes me), no way to if an opponent is within range of your attacks, nothing that will help you if you are new to the game. It is with this I came to the conclusion that this is a an experiance based game, seeing as the only way to get better at this game is by actually playing it ,unlike most games nowadays which are based on the over-powered items you've recieved.

Now you may think: "Wow, no bad things to mention. That's amazing!" There are a few things I've noticed with this game, albeit not many since I've haven't playd for that long *sniff*. The first thing is that there is no matchmaking, as stated by so many others before me, meaning that you need to find an appropriate server yourself, which can re♥♥♥♥ in joining a server on which you've got <500 ping. Another thing that I noticed is that some maps appear to be bugged (can't remember thier names though), which sort of ruined for a friend of mine when he was playing. The third thing might have been server specific, but I'm bring it up just in case it wasn't, and that was a bugged mini-map. Normally the player icon and enemy icons should be on the mini-map, but when I played they were in the middle of the screen instead.

So all in all, this is a game I recomend to those that enjoy ffa, pvp action in a sort of MOBA style, best enjoyed when playing with a couple of friends of the same skill. And one last note: this is not a p2w game as other reviewers have stated, a statement on which I agree.

Hope you found this useful and have a nice day.
