It is all the time a pleasure to stumble throughout an indie sport you’ve got not heard of earlier than, particularly one that appears large and polished, like it may toe-to-toe with a lot larger video games. That is the way it feels to take a look at Thymesia, an action-RPG with a grim setting and zippy melee fight towards plague-infested brutes.
Have a look at this trailer for a way of what its fight shall be prefer to play, and of what kind of world you will be exploring.
OverBorder, a Taiwanese improvement crew, have been posting movies of the sport for a few years, however the trailer above broadcasts their publishing cope with Crew 17. Solely seven individuals work at OverBorder, so it is no shock they’ve partnered up.
Key to the sport’s world is that it has been ravaged by a plague, and Corvus, the sport’s protagonist, is ready to seize “enemy ailments and [use] them as weapons towards his adversaries,” in accordance with the press launch. Swords, scythes and spears are seen above, however I am guessing the moments after they flip inexperienced is consultant of Corvus wielding the ailments indirectly.
A lot of the fight additionally entails fastidiously timed dodges and parries. Within the press launch, it explains that you can customise Corvus for various playstyles, and improve his stats as you play so that every playthrough is completely different. Realizing me, I’ll lose to the primary boss and by no means progress any additional.
Yearly appears to deliver extra video games on this vein.
Rattling, there’s not quite a lot of info to share about Thymesia at this stage. Awkward! Actually regretting attempting to show this put up into an acrostic at this level.
