Blade Assault, an action-packed roguelike platformer being published by NEOWIZ and developed by Team Suneat, is available to pick up on steam through early access. This version of the game will include 4 full chapters of the game, 4 bosses, 3 types of weapons, and over 50 different items to collect and augment your characters’ abilities with.
Currently, the team is focused on player feedback, hoping to improve the game before a full launch. Adding new content to the game will be another big focus for the team going forward. While there is no date yet, the game will also release on PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch.
According to an official press statement:
After the devastating Red Stone War, the world is divided into three regions: the mutant infested outside grounds, the Undercity where people have fled to seek refuge from mutants, and the sky city Esperanza where the rich and powerful rule over the world. Fight against the corrupt military of Esperanza as part of the resistance force of the Undercity. Bring the amoral to justice by becoming stronger and fighting alongside your trusty comrades. It’s a nonstop fight to the center of a corrupt futuristic government, and only you can upgrade and augment your abilities to take them down.
The game has a fast-paced style and relies more on using close-quarter combat. However, the trailer also showcases several guns and ranged attacks.
The same release states that “Team Suneat is an indie game dev team made up of 4 industry veterans that have been working together for just as many years. They’ve always wanted to create their own pixel-art platformer, which eventually gave birth to Blade Assault.”
The game is currently 15% off on steam. This offer will last until June 14th.
