Whack Your Friends in the Face With Oversized Weapons in Swordy
Frogshark, a three-person independent game studio based in New Zealand, has revealed its debut game Swordy, and it's quite the visual spectacle. According to the studio, "Swordy is a tribal couch-multiplayer physics based brawler." As seen in the PAX AUS Announcement Trailer below, up to four players slam, bash, slice, punch, throw, block, and stab their way to victory with various oversized weaponry. Of course, with a name like Swordy, there are swords, but the trailer also shows giant hammers and maces. Frogshark states that the game features "expressive local-multiplayer fun, fluid and weighty physics based combat, realistic exploding flaming weapons, and beautiful low poly art." Oh, and when you kill someone, they explode in a shower of colorful pixely goodness.
Swordy will be shown off at PAX Australia, taking place October 31 thru November 2 in Melbourne, VC. Frogshark has not announced what platforms the game will be coming to, nor a release date, but the game is being made in Unity, so a PC version is highly likely. Be sure to check out the screenshots below! This looks like the type of game you lose friends over!
