Doomblade, Action Metroidvania, Announced

Iceberg Interactive announced a new title yesterday. Doomblade is a 2D action-packed Metroidvania (or Igavania) with plans to come to the PC some time next year. Muro Studios developed the game, and Iceberg Interactive will publish.

Doomblade, together with Gloom Girl, journey to uncover the powers of the void. The Doomblade is a sentient weapon determined to escape, using Gloom Girl to achieve its own ends. Though the weapon is eager to take its revenge on the Dread Lords who bound it in the Underworld, it must recover its former strength and glory. By searching for statues of the old gods, the Doomblade can regain its energy from the long-extinct Gloomfolk.

Doom and Gloom will travel throughout the Lowlands, from the halls of Gloomhaunt to the New Wilderwood forest. Gloom Girl will destroy the guardians and track down the Dread Lords responsible for the Doomblade’s imprisonment.
