A downloadable game for Windows

A thief finds herself in the ruins of an ancient underwater city. There she finds a sword, or to be precise, a blade. But not just any kind of blade.

A Gravity Blade!

Now, she must only find her way out again...

*****


What we intended to be a one week game-jam, turned into two and a half months of code juggling, engine hacking and physics breaking. The end result is a deep core mechanic and the biggest game we have made so far.



Controls on a Controller:

Left stick to move
Right stick to aim
Right trigger to place blade
X/Square button to jump in the air and brake while airborne

We recommend playing with a controller if possible.


Controls on a Keyboard:

WASD to move
Up, Down, Left & Right to aim
Spacebar to place blade, jump and brake

Knowing that, let's move on to...


How To Play:

This is a rough explanation of how to play, the game is of course best understood while playing.

  • When you aim with the right stick, the crosshair appears.
  • The blade appears  on top of the crosshair. 
  • As soon as the blade is placed in the ground its gravity starts to pull you in.
  • You can pick the sword back up  by running into it.
  • When you jump into the air you get pulled towards the sword faster, because there is less friction than on the floor.
  • While airborne you can still control your character, this also allows  you to avoid the sword and move  about within it's gravitational range. 
  • Flying around the sword you can choose where you want to land.
  • If you brake in the air you will slide a bit across the floor depending on your speed in the air.
  • To attack an enemy you have to fly into the sword to pick it up and with the remaining speed, hit an enemy.

Enjoy!
