Updates and Changes
  • Title Screen animated
  • Lamgi animated in town and dreamland, they run, prance and jump
  • Finny now animated in town (Eldros coming soon!)
  • Wisps moving around on the edges of the battlefield
  • Particle effects for Teo added in Battle for dash, dodge and charge attacks
  • New Epic Music for Battles past the training phase
  • New Loading screen
  • New Transitions, now instant (with Teo running across) for all areas other than into battle where loading takes effect for each boss
  • Mittux VFX added in
  • Mittux mini optimized to avoid lag spikes caused when new ones are spawned
  • Polish and adjustments for player feedback from DreamHack
  • Teo’s charge attack now always resets if mid combo, this allows a consistent dash across the screen every time you do 3 charge attacks in a row
  • Movement in Town/Dreamland made a bit easier to avoid overrunning your goal too quickly



Our Goals Now
Our launch date for Kickstarter is aimed around September, so our focus now is on that.

We’ve just started preparing our Kickstarter page and will work on it up through our launch. We’re looking into finding a trailer creator that can make us something awesome to show what BBB is capable of.

Our work on the demo slows down a bit more as we progress as it’s in a solid state so we’re focusing on polish for it now.



Sign Up for the Demo
The demo is already being shared to some through our Discord where you can sign up for an early look before it opens up to everyone on Kickstarter.

The demo is in the polish and bug fixing phase now, so we’re able to fix up bugs and add some small polish as people run through it and give feedback to improve the game!

About This Game

Bound By Blades is a boss hunting Action RPG, fight alone or group up with friends to slay the Ilcyon overrunning the lands of Ashmyr.



Features of Bound By Blades
  • Select from 3 unique characters with their own combat styles to start your journey
  • Cooperative boss hunting gameplay across over 25 total bosses, from the core 10 unique Ilcyon to their vicious variations
  • Join with a friend in 2 Player Multiplayer or play solo with their character's assistance
  • Craft new equipment and upgrade it to overpower your foes
  • Choose your unique runes that suit your playstyle, strengthen your offense or bolster your defenses
  • Learn the lore of the lands of Ashmyr and tips through various NPCs in town
  • Hatch and raise battle brood pets and bring them into battle to assist you
  • Harvest materials and interact with your pets in Dreamland

Inspired by the Monster Hunter series
Slay large monsters, harvest loot and craft upgrades to take on the next massive beasts. Join with friends or tackle the challenges alone. But even alone you can bring friend's characters as NPCs as well as your own battle pet to assist you for the toughest foes that lie ahead.



Intuitive Controls and Unique Combat
Controls are built to be comfortable and intuitive for all control schemes. Play with a controller, keyboard and mouse, mouse or even just a keyboard. BBB is built for players of all types and is meant to allow any adventurer to embark on this challenging journey. The combat system is vast in allowing a variety of attacks like Quick Attacks, Strong Attacks, Combos and Unique Combo Finishers. But you'll need to survive too, so you'll need to master Blocking, Dodging, Running and Healing using potions in the midst of battle. The game may look simple, but it opens itself to a wide dynamic of gameplay and challenges through the bosses' abilities and the necessity to master your own.

Learn the Lore of the Lands of Ashmyr
In-between battles talk with the NPCs in town to gain insight on where the Ilcyon came from and the stories of each one. Gain knowledge from the village elder, Eldros as he helps give tips on tackling each battle. And learn the lore of stories told within the world from Finny, the "magical and real heroine" of Bound By Blades.

And Watch the World Grow
Bound By Blades is an indie game, and is being developed for all the players who love RPGs. The game will grow with all the feedback given, from now, to the release and hopefully through the future as well.



The Next Step For Bound By Blades
Bound By Blades is headed towards Kickstarter around September this year, we'll need all of your support to help ensure the game can be developed!
