'DoomBlade' Gets Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on May 10, 2023 @ 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.

The new and disruptive fly-attack movement system allows Gloom Girl to continue dashing through the air as long as she keeps attacking. Players will need quick reflexes and razor-sharp precision to master the game.

With DoomBlade and his powers, Gloom and Doom make their way to free the Lowlands and exact revenge against the Dread Lords. The level and enemy encounters are designed with fast-paced movement in mind. A soundtrack by Brian Skeel will surely get your blood pumping and set the mood for some serious Fly & Slash action.

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!

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.

Journey 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.
