Publisher Grindstone and developers Triple Hill Interactive and Toko Midori are finally bringing their genre-bending game, Die by the Blade, to Kickstarter, and it is live now! With a goal of $20,000, fans can pledge to bring this highly-anticipated title to life.
Ready your blade, because your first mistake just might be your last:
Drawing inspiration from legendary combat games like Bushido Blade and Way of the Samurai, Die by the Blade is a one-hit-kill sword fighting action game where players must take up their weapons and face off against deadly opponents. Choose your character, select your blade and engage in 1 vs 1 combat where the slightest mistake could seal your fate. Become a master of your craft and fight to the death with other players in tense, fast paced multiplayer matches or slash through tough AI enemies in the thrilling single player campaign.
Currently, there are over ten tiers to choose from, and pledge amounts begin at $2. The Jorogumo tier ($35) will land you digital content, special in-game items, access to the forum and a digital version of Die by the Blade. The highest tier, Gozzillas, costs $1,500 and is jam-packed with rewards. Aside from a plethora of digital and physical goodies, this tier also comes with a special invitation to visit the studio and meet the developers.
Die by the Blade’ s Kickstarter is now live and will run for 29 days. If you would like to check out the tiers and put in a pledge, you can check out all the details here. If funded, the game is set to launch on PC and consoles in 2021.
