Spiders Studio, the developers behind Mars: War Logs and the most terrifyingly named company since I’m Going To Eat Your Face Entertainment, have released a teaser trailer showing off the combat in their forthcoming RPG Bound by Flame.
Bound by Flame has you playing a mercenary possessed by a flame demon, which is apparently where the game’s upgrade system comes in – you can give in and use its power in exchange for your soul, or resist its charms and focus on more human, heroic talents instead.
I realise that this is a teaser trailer, but the combat shown here looks very… Witcher-esque, in terms of animation. Lots of acrobatic chained slashes, and two-handed swords swung with abandon. It’s worth a look.
Bound by Flame is due out in early 2014, and will probably contain spiders. SIGH.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
