I was browsing Twitter, as a guy does at times, when I was asked by a Dan Rhodenizer (@danrhodenizer) to vote a game up.
I’m certainly not one to pass up a look at a game, especially when someone asks me to give my vote. So, let’s talk about what I think, from what I’ve seen of Insanity’s Blade.
It appears that the story behind this game is that you are a father, who has to have the journey from hell (Actually, to hell) in order to save the souls of your wife and child. The story has been taken from the Insanity’s Blade graphic novel and the game looks to replicate the style as much as it possibly can.
As far as I can gather, this is the first in a series of planned games revolving around a sword and a dad’s hatred.
So there is the co-op demo video that has been put on the Steam Greenlight. It appears that you will be joined by an AI companion or you can go at it with a friend! Nice.
The game had modest expectations on Kickstarter. It met and exceeded it’s targets and now is looking to get greenlit. So, ladies and gentlemen, go ahead and click the “Yes” button on this, if you’re interested in a game that is available on multiple platforms and if you want to see it go far.
So, if you’re interested in an 8-bit trip to hell, let’s vote this up and see where it goes. More variety on Steam is always a good thing and more developers on Steam always rules. Psst, hey, Casual Bit Games, if you’re looking at this, could you happen to put up a copy of the demo’s that were available during Kickstarter onto your website? We’d really, really like that!
So, if you’re just looking for a new game to play once it has been approved, consider voting Insanity’s Blade up – Looks like it could be great fun and very reminiscent of Ghosts n Goblins or Golden Axe. We guessed that’s the point, so if you enjoyed those two incredible classics, this should be right up your alley.
