We at Puny Human have some exciting news to announce. After many years in development, starting out as a humble mod over at IndieDB's sister site ModDB, graduating into being a real game and going through some pretty impressive feature creep, we're finally releasing Blade Symphony!

Blade Symphony Releasing May 7th, 2014

After 1.5 million duels and multiple tournaments, tactical sword-fighter Blade Symphony is coming out of Early Access and releasing on Steam and the Humble Store.

Check out the release teaser below:


Stay tuned, we'll have a full release trailer soon!

I'm sorry but I really have no idea what this is supposed to be. Obviously a type of sword-fighting but in the video it looks like your just running around randomly spamming the jump and attack keys. If this is how the game is to be actually played then the combat system really needs to be redone.

Those are fair criticisms that we are going to address, especially the jumping. There are a few important things that make you see the game differently than we do:

1. We've played this gameplay style a lot so far in many other sword fighting games (a lot being three to four years). Many moves we're doing seem random but are actually patient and calculated.

2. There are no UI indicators of things like combo count, block radius, or stance (which are not implemented yet). Much of the game requires you to "feel" your way through trial and error, something that we want to improve on.

For example, you can only swing four attacks before having to rest briefly, leaving you open for counterattack. It's very hard to see this in a video, but it's very obvious when playing the game.

3. Random hacking and slashing would be a viable strategy for newbies but advanced players would be able to kill that style very easily. This has yet to be fully proven, but this is why we need testers to try every combat style they can think of :) That way we can balance the game for more depth.

Thanks for your feedback!

You realize that was a demo of the game so far, not the finished game yes?

Yes I realize this but even for a play demo it just looks like random key strokes and button clicks wich isn't much of a good way to show off a game.

Wow, looks nice. You should really consider implenting smod stuff into this mod, chopping with a sword feels much better when your enemies actual gets chopped^^
