Saw the Trailer(chek their site) Did not liked the fact that the players can fly. It takes away the challenge and ruins the idea of sword fighting.
Indie swordfighting game from British developer now available to download.
Oxford, UK-based Mode 7 Games has released its first title, the PC game Determinance. Determinance is a mouse-controlled swordfighting game with no preset moves, where the characters fly through clouds battling it out. It features five different modes, including an eight-player free-for-all where the last man standing wins, a duel arena for one-on-one battles, and a single-player mode with unlocklable bot deathmatches.
Mode 7's project and marketing manager Paul Taylor explains the development process behind the game: "Our intention was to make a deeply unusual niche debut title with its own weird aesthetic on a minimal budget."
Taylor says that the game has had reasonable sales so far and mainly good customer feedback, although "some gamers seem genuinely offended by it, mostly because the characters fly! It's faintly bizarre."
Determinance is priced at $19.95 and can be downloaded from the company's Web site.
I'm all for supporting the small, independent developer/publisher. Anything we can do to get some fresh ideas into the market.
Well I will admit, yes the graphics aren't anything to go ooo ahh about, but the gameplay does sound intriguing, I will at least give the demo a try.
I don't know why people trash the game, it sounds interesting enough to me. Low graphics is all my PC can take.
Wow, those graphics are like worse than Morrowinds' graphics!... How pathetic for a game coming out when Crysis and all those other next-gen games are coming out! And what's with that view distance... Sheesh, and these people think they'll be able to sell this game.
Having actually played it, its pretty good. the sword play isn't bad, and the graphics look much better in motion. Honestly, you have to be pretty lazy to not even try to download a reasonably sized demo.
Looks like DBZ meets Highlander rofl...will have to dl the demo tonight..wacky games that are trying to be serious ftw
