Music's cool, Star Wars style laser sword is cool.
But I got no idea what the developers actually wanna show after watching…
It's so dark, I can't see anything but the laser swords swinging around…

Oh, good. It features heavy bass.

I was worried...

Those camera angles were terrible. Not opposed to some light saber battles though...

Hi. I'm Ronald Riquet,president of ZikWave Studios Inc. Beats and Blades is a new independent game whose main purpose is to promote the work done by new artists. It's a new way for them to show their talent. We do something more interesting with trap music(hip hop) and mix it with anime culture. The gameplay will be a simplified version of Ninja Gaiden and DmC with 2 new mechanics. This information may help you understand what we want to achieve with this project.
You're supposed to play the game with good headphones or a subwoofer since infrabass has a predominant place in trap music. That's why there's a message at the beginning.
Thank you all for your feedback.
