Post news RSS Captain Blacksword - Just made port on Steam!

A new combat platformer swashbuckle-em-up inspired by NES games!

Ahoy there swashbucklers!

Four years ago I played the original Castlevania for the first time and thought to myself "Bloody hell this game is ugly and unfair." and then I made it to level three and thought "This is a goddamn gorgeous game design masterpiece" as I popped my thumb back into place after getting knocked into a hole for the hundredth time.

The only thing that could have made it better was a pirate.

During bursts of inspiration I've worked on this game in small development sessions and I'm ready to put the wind in its sails and make this the next full Victorian Clambake title.

There will be secondary weapons, magical sword attacks, bossfights, secret levels, collectibles, minigames, and more- but I'm not showing just everything yet!

So if you'd like to come along on this voyage and watch Captain Blacksword develop into a finished product then follow along on Discord, Youtube, Twitter, or Steam!

Fair winds to you all!
- Evan Massie, Captain of Victorian Clambake.
