Skara – The Blade Remains is one of those games you just have to keep your eye on. There are very few games that will offer a fresh new vibe on game mechanics and play like Skara will. Skara – The Blade Remains is like the melting pot of game genres, as it combines attributes from a variety of gaming genres that include, RPG, Fighting, and MOBA’s. The games developers have appropriately placed it in its own category called Multiplayer Online Versus (MOV).
Earlier in the month the developers behind the game launched a kickstarter campaign to help fund the game’s full release later this year. “We already have a game to offer,” says Pablo Rodriguez, CEO and creative director, Skara, “But our vision for Skara – The Blade Remains is so much bigger. That’s why we are doing a Kickstarter that will offer our backers great rewards if they join us for the wild ride that is game development.” In addition, the team wants to bring the game to next-gen consoles.
According to the developers, “Kickstarter backers will be guaranteed beta access immediately at the end of the campaign, as well as numerous other rewards, if the program is successful.”
The following is a brief summary of the game from the developers:
Skara – The Blade Remains can support as small as one versus one duels and up to 16 player battles, in which gamers compete for dominance in a fantasy filled world racked by cosmic disaster.
Players choose any of five classes and can customize their character’s appearance, equipment and fighting style. Gamers also decide with whom they will team and create their own factions inside every class. The teams then fight as one with the goal of dominating arenas, expanding their territories and gaining renown in the world of Skara. The best players will be immortalized as heroes and kings, writing history with their successes and failures.
