The lights are on
Spiders Studio and Focus Home Interactive has announced Bound by Flame, a fantasy action/RPG, along with its very first gameplay screenshot.
Bound by Flame is set in a dark fantasy universe where players take control of a mercenary possessed by an evil force known as a flame demon. You can go either way with these dark powers, either accepting the flame demon’s abilities or taking the heroic route and rejecting them. Throughout the game, you can choose to slowly give up part of the hero’s soul for more power, which will eventually affect the condition of the hero’s body.
The game is cut into chapters, each with different quests surrounding a main narrative. Choices made by the player can affect the rest of the game.
Character customization ranges from gender to facial characteristics, which goes to affect the appearance of the flame demon. An in-game crafting system let’s players create and upgrade their armor and weaponry for better combat experience.
Bound by Flame is slated for release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at the end of 2013.

Looks cool, sounds like standard modern RPG stuff--but no Wii U or PS4?
I'm always okay with any type of fantasy/RPG. I'll be interested to hear more about this as time goes on. The screenshot looks pretty nice as well.
Cool, but I'm not digging the weird right arm. The game's structure sounds pretty unique, but the back-story reminds me of Dark Souls in a way.
Sounds pretty awesome!!!
The way they described it, it sounds like it's just a way cooler version of Fable.
This looks Uber cool!!
Very interesting concept. I'll have to keep an eye on this one...
Interesting...Sounds like Fable only without the humor mixed with Kingdoms of Amalur.
This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun, but I would have liked to see it on a next gen console.
