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.

About the game


What's up?
  • b0vril
    b0vril I find the direction that military shooters go with a sci-fi setting is a bit boring. Not really into mech stuff. But they could do something a more "punk" sci-fi. (3 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy I want futuristic BF. The last BF4 DLC has a lot of BF2142 hints. (15 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that runs the risk of it feeling too much like battlefront maybe? but at least it would be their own world and creations. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i'm kinda hoping for something more futuristic. something a bit more creative. mechs instead of tanks, hover bikes, jet packs etc. (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @b0vril: my worry with modern is that it could feel too similar to BF3/4. i mean i want whatever they do to feel like those games but i would like something to separate them thematically at least. (29 minutes ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @GriftGFX: should they go back to a more modern era, or does that matter? (41 minutes ago)
