3D Realms has picked up publishing duties for Point N’ Sheep’s new throwback action-adventure game, Bloodless.
Bloodless is in development for Windows PC (via Steam), though a release date wasn’t announced.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
Bloodless is a retro stylish, action-adventure featuring fast-paced combat staged at the atmospheric lands of Bakugawa. Help ronin Tomoe to confront ghosts of her past to end the reign of violence of Shogun Akechi, her former master.
- Precise Combat: Fight to disarm your old allies, Akechi’s samurai army, with nothing but your bare fists using Tomoe’s signature dash-counter mechanic. Enhance your abilities by drinking infusions of herbs scattered around the land.
- Moody Environments: Explore the sacred nature and suffered districts of Bakugawa, where its society lives under a violent and corrupt military regime, isolated from the world and shattered by the terrors of its past wars.
- Emotional storytelling: Even as a coward and deserter through the eyes of her own people, ronin Tomoe returns to her former land after witnessing all the blood that a blade can shed, hoping to spark the hope and courage Bakugawa needs to fight back its violent political methods.
