Vambrace: Cold Soul is a perfect example of what global collaborations are capable of creating. The game weaves the beautiful, handcrafted illustrations of Korean artist Minho Kim with an epic narrative from American writer and game designer, T.L. Riven. The result of this worldwide collaboration is a truly unique fantasy-adventure featuring the best of western game design principles with eastern aesthetics. If you’re into strategic gameplay Vambrace’s story-rich roguelike mechanics will keep you on edge for hours of dungeon delving mayhem.
Take on the role of Evelia Lyric as you embark on several expeditions that will truly test your mettle as a leader. Before departing, visit the recruiting board to assemble your team. Each member brings their unique strengths and abilities to combat and the expedition itself. Craft new items from old loot, make sure your party is properly equipped, and journey to the surface to fulfill your objectives. The path ahead will be fraught with difficulties, but every one of the game’s seven chapters offers unique challenges emphasizing different party combinations and a high level of replayability.
Lyric comes into ownership of an ancient relic known as the Aetherbrace, after her father’s passing. She then embarks from the human realm of Edena on an expedition into the frigid, Dwarven kingdom of Dokkheim. It is there she hopes to find answers that may reveal more about the strange artifact and her father’s mysterious past. Be sure to check out the game’s Story Trailer for an introduction to Vambrace: Cold Soul as Evelia Lyric makes her fateful journey to the cursed city of Icenaire.
Vambrace: Cold Soul is set to release on PC on the 28th of May. The release dates for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One are planned for Q3 2019.
Later today, at 9pm CEST / 3pm PST, every PC gamer will be able to try out the upcoming 2D multiplayer madness of Fromto at your home for the very first time. You like unpredictable things happening in games? Come in! You like to play and laugh locally or online with your friends? Give it a try then! You would rather like to try it on your own first? No problem - join the Beta and test the single player mode!
Fromto is about being creative - or just experimental - and unleashing your inner child. When we presented the 2D racing game at PAX East recently it was a good crowd puller - its unpredictability will please you and perhaps others who will watch you playing too.
If you are interested in playing Fromto, just can get one of the 1500 free Beta keys either at the game's Discord Channel or by using bit.ly/Fromto_Beta instead. The Beta will run one week, ending on May 9th. All public keys will be made void then; only press and influencer keys will remain valid.
