I recently reviewed Mars War Logs by Spiders Studio, and now the team is working on Bound by Flame, a new RPG for Windows, PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360. Bound by Flame builds off of the combat system of Mars War Logs, but will add a bigger selection of attacks/skills along with the use of magic. Spiders Studio also brought us Of Orcs and Men. Here’s an official summary of the game:
Bound by Flame lets you play a mercenary possessed by a flame demon. As a victim of this demonic influence, players will have to choose between the powers offered by their host, or to keep their humanity, developing heroic talents instead. Dangers and enemies, becoming more terrifying and fearsome in battle, will be temptations to acquire more power by giving up part of the hero’s soul to the demon. Progression of the demonic influence will be reflected by the transformation of the hero’s body. Depending on the choices made by the player and the influence of the demon, some chapters will offer different scenarios and a different experience, adding important replayability to the game. Several companions will join the player during his quest, and will, depending on the player’s actions, develop friendship, romance or rivalry.
You can also customize your character way more than in Mars War Logs – including gender and facial features. I love that an indie studio is so ambitious with their games and goals, and I am really looking forward to Bound by Flame in early 2014. Check out the official site.
