With less than a week before E3,Spider Studios have released a couple new screenshots of their big budget RPG before it’s official debut at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Spider Studios have recently gained a good following of RPG fans thanks to the release of Mars War Logs for PC (coming later in Q3 for Xbox Live Arcade), a smaller budget RPG which has taken fans and industry experts by surprise for its depth.
Bound by Flame lets us play a mercenary possessed by a flame demon in an ambitious Dark Fantasy universe. As a victim of this demonic influence, we will have to choose between the powers offered by this evil or to reject the demonic influence, developing heroic talents instead. Dangers, and enemies becoming more terrifying and fearsome in battle, will be temptations to acquire more power by giving up part of the hero’s soul to the demon. Progression of the demonic influence will be reflected by the transformation of the hero’s body.
As with every other RPG on the market Bound by Flame will include features like player customisation, skill tree progression, companions with a friendship/love/rivalry system, real-time battles and a bestiary which is described as being ‘rich and spectacular‘.
So far all we know is Bound by Flame is targeting a release towards the end of this year. More details will likely surface after the E3 debut next week.
