The game is available to play on Kongregate and for download here on IndieDB! I'm finally done! Well, you know, as done as I can be. I'm interested in any and all feedback or bug reports. It's taken me about 10 months, 8 of them actually working on the game in my spare time. I desperately hope I was successful in making a challenging, fair, and varied combat system that makes for an exciting and unique brawler.
SWOOOORDS! is basically the combat prototype for a much larger action RPG I'm calling Urverden. It will be an attempt at combining the brawler and roguelike genres to provide a unique experience, somewhere in between Dark Souls and Dwarf Fortress' Adventure Mode.
Tons of thanks to everyone who made their art and sound assets freely available so I could use them in the game: Danc, Arachne, everyone on Freesound.org, icon-makers from fatcow.com and sinnix.net, and Pip Malt! A ton of thanks also goes to all the beta testers, the followers, and soon-to-be players!
