Prepare these twitchy thumbs
If, like my good self, you discovered your self enraptured by the improbable 2018 platformer Celeste, you then’ll be Extremely OK with this model new trailer for Earthblade, which premiered as part of yesterday night’s Game Award festivities.
Dripping with simplistic fashion, as solely Team Celeste know the way, Earthblade will observe the adventures of Nevoa, Child of Fate, as they return to what stays of a ruined Earth in what appears to be one other pixelated story full of challenges on a bodily and emotional scale. According to EXOK, Earthblade will characteristic seamless exploration, participating fight, and “countless mysteries”, as Nevoa explores the world, meets good friend and foe, and overcomes quite a few obstacles of their seek for solutions.
From this conceptual trailer, it appears that evidently Earthblade will characteristic a extra typical open-world adventure expertise akin to one thing like Team Cherry’s Hollow Knight. But the recognizable appeal and magnificence of EXOK Games are readily obvious right here. From the ethereal music and forlorn environment to its intriguing character design — detailed in such simplicity — and the heavy leanings towards multi-directional world traversal and the satisfaction of the journey itself. I’ll undoubtedly be maintaining a tally of this one, and followers of the unusual and fantastical would do effectively to do the identical.
Earthblade is at the moment in improvement for PC. It is scheduled to launch someday in 2024.
