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.
The article doesn't say much, but looking good (if not generic). Let's wait and see.
Huh, this sounds like a pretty cool concept.
First Mars: War Logs now this. Focus Home really wants to put out some RPGs. Hopefully their games turn out for the better.
Is it too soon to be excited from one screenshot? ...That monster just looks awesome and beastly, and the info about the game sounds really cool.
I can dig the concept, but I wish it wasn't such a long wait.
I'll keep an eye out for more info. It has a nice concept, but I want to see more of the actual product.
If I get this game, I'm gonna go full demon
Looks neat. But this publisher/developer are infamous for making weird European RPGs that no one really cares about. They seem to put out 2-3 a year, and they're all forgettable and weird. Here's hoping they finally break the curse, but I won't be surprised if this comes and goes and no one really notices.
Solid title, promising concept, nice screenshot. But just one? Come on. End of 2013 will see a flurry of heavy-hitting releases, not to mention new consoles. Better get the hype train rolling Focus Home Interactive (is that REALLY your name?)
The ideas behind this game, have me very interested to see and hear more about it. I hope they release some more info, and gameplay videos in the near future. Fantasy RPG's are one of my favorite genres.
Looks cool. If the combat is similar to Dark Souls this will probably be part of my collection.
SWEET i love these games i hope they can actually make this worth playing
Woot! I'm a sucker for dark fantasy universes! Glad to see more RPG's coming out of the woodwork, it's refreshing after all the shooters last year.
Looks pretty cool. I love fantasy RPGs, and the concept seems pretty interesting.
That dude looks a bit like Guts from Berserk.
looks pretty interesting
