God of Blades is FINALLY out on PC/Mac/Linux, and boy, are we excited for y’all to check it out. The computer version of God of Blades not only includes super souped up graphics, but also has the 1-2 player mode Slayers, and well as a BRAND NEW & EXCLUSIVE mode called Chaos Storm, where you must fight though a whirling maelstrom of cultists and supernatural horrors! Check it out and purchase through our front page!
Big, possibly unexpected news- and yes, today is April Fools’ Day, but I promise, this is a legitimate announcement !
God of Blades is a game framed around a pseudo-book series with a dense mythology. We’ve received a number of questions over the past year asking where people can find these books, even though they haven’t exactly existed. Well, we’re excited to announce that those books are actually becoming a reality. For over the past year, we’ve secretly teamed up with creative firm Django Media to develop the first volume in a trilogy of eBooks tied to the mythology of God of Blades, and now it’s being released!
The first enhanced eBook, God of Blades: Hand of the Sable King, features behind-the-scenes videos on the making of the game. The eBook is penned by acclaimed author Greg Moller, and begins to fill in the shrouded past of The Nameless King, God of Blades’ mysterious anti-hero.
The Song of the Nameless King trilogy introduces us to the warrior king in his youth — when he indeed had a name — and his band of noble brethren, the Knights of the Bright Hundred. In this first volume, four noble warriors lead the charge against the destruction of an empire. Amidst the clash of sword and battleaxe, the deadly whisper of arrows and the horrors of dark sorcery, the Bright Hundred wages a desperate war for the salvation of civilization.
God of Blades: Hand of the Sable King will be available on iTunes on April 2nd for the initial price of $2.99. To celebrate, God of Blades will have an update in the App Store with a brand new blade to unlock, Hallow.
When we first began God of Blades, we never anticipated that someone would be eager to write a novel based on the mythology, but over this past year we’ve put a lot of careful thought and work into this project- we’re very excited to hear from our fans about this first book!
Hope everyone has had a fantastic holiday season! 2012 has been a phenomenal year- from releasing our first O.R.C.A. project (Psychic Frog), to presenting at Fantastic Arcade, to releasing Slayers on Venus Patrol, and of course, releasing God of Blades in the App Store. Needless to say, it’s been a whirlwind of a year for our small team, and it’s a year that simply couldn’t have been possible without the support of our friends and fans (seriously. Your support truly propels us to continue working on beautiful stuff!)
As another token of our appreciation, Jason’s made another awesome wallpaper, this time featuring the Slayers environment. Speaking of Slayers, did you get the chance to check it out yet for PC/Mac? The local two-player (or one-player v. AI) game is still available for FREE on Venus Patrol!
All previous wallpapers can now be found in our Gallery!
Thanks all, and get ready for great things in 2013- the Android release of God of Blades, along with the PC/Mac release, and some other exciting (currently top secret!) things are on the way…
We’re pleased to announced that we were selected as Pocket Tactics’ Action Game of the Year! It’s an honor to even be considered, and we’re ridiculously grateful for all our awesome, enthusiastic fans. Thanks so much!
To celebrate, we’re sharing another wallpaper with you guys! This time, it’s the blazing caverns of the Cave of Memory, featuring my favorite four eyed dragon statue.
Also, as another way to celebrate, if you haven’t gotten our free game Slayers on Venus Patrol, consider downloading for PC or Mac! And tell us what you think!
Thanks all, get ready for lots of exciting stuff coming from White Whale in 2013!
