'DoomBlade' Playable Demo On Steam During Gamescom, Full Launch Delayed Until Q2 2023

by Rainier on Aug. 24, 2022 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

DoomBlade combines pulse-pounding agile action with a classic 2D side-scrolling open world Metroidvania platformer.

Deep underground, Gloom Girl discovers DoomBlade, a sentient weapon hellbent on escape after eons in chains. Together, “Doom and Gloom” embark on a brutal quest to unlock the powers of The Void and destroy the Dread Lords once and for all in this 2D Action Metroidvania.

Lured out of her solitude, she discovers a chamber containing a sentient blade, trapped and bound for eons. Freeing DoomBlade, “Doom and Gloom” join forces and begin a quest to regain the blade’s powers and enact vengeance on its captors.

Wielding DoomBlade, Gloom Girl can ride through the air to attack enemies. Target monsters to attack them directly, and slay them with DoomBlade’s wrath!

Moody Metroidvania DoomBlade is part of Iceberg Interactives Gamescom 2022 showcase.

Since its announcement in 2021 DoomBlade has made leaps and bounds in development, however the original 2022 launch window has been postponed until Q3 2023.

Gamers attendong Gamescom can take a look for themselves, have a one-on-one talk with the developers and discover the game at booth A024 in Hall 4.1.

And no need for gloom if you are not attending Gamescom. A demo will be live on Steam during the exhibition! Everyone itching to try out DoomBlade can do so until August 28th. 

The blade is hungry to wreak its revenge on The Dread Lords, who bound and trapped it in the Underworld. But first it must regain its lost strength. Search for statues of the old gods, where DoomBlade’s powers were hidden and stored by the long-dead Gloomfolk, awaiting its return.

From the abandoned halls of Gloomhaunt, into the New Wilderwood forest full of untrusting tribesmen, through the Molded Mines with their hedonistic shroom people, and into a technological hellscape known as the Power Sector. Wielding DoomBlade, Gloom Girl must destroy the monsters within and hunt down the Dread Lords who imprisoned Doomblade.

DoomBlade is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for Q2 2023.
