[font="Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"][color="#111111"]
[/font][color="#111111"][font="Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif"]Dueling Blades is a Free To Play fantasy RPG that combines hard core strategy elements with social network interactions. Utilizing a combat system we describe as “Simultaneous Turn Strategy” or STS. Dueling blades will allow dynamic combat gameplay against other online players while minimizing latency and hardware limitations of social network users.[/font]

The players can choose their progression path with several branching classes, skills, and equipment which can be unlocked through regular gameplay as well purchased through the various shops in game.

Here are some fun facts! Remember, This is not a turn based game. You and your opponent are making decisions at the same time. You will imagine where your enemy may move and strategically place yourself in an advancing position. Your turn can consist of a move and attack as a single combined action. If you decide not to move and just attack for defense, you will gain one energy point to go towards the usage of skills. You may also charge up your energy, making no movement at all, in order to utilize more powerful skills that override normal attacks!

Once you defeat your opponent, you can continue your quests, missions or reign over other online players. You are rewarded with experience, gold and items. As you progress through your levels, we decided that you should have the opportunity to truly customize your character. If you want to go down both a warrior and thief class, you can! Each class brings a new play style to learn and combine with your child class skills. After reaching the end of your second class, you get something known as a fury skill which will be demonstrated on our Kickstarter project.

One more thing to note is the priority system of attack actions. A normal attack is “less than” a Critical attack or when your opponent lands on the red line. A skill overrides a critical attack and the Fury skill overrides a skill.[/font]

    [size="6"]The Grand Plan...

    We plan to finish the public beta version of the game in the Spring of 2012. After much work of bringing a solid dedicated group of indie game developers, we are now working at full speed in completing Dueling Blades.

    In January, we plan on starting a Kickstarter campaign to pay for additional software licenses and server costs to launch Dueling Blades. This will provide opportunities to test our game and many other rewards for supporting the team.

    After polishing the final touches of the game and releasing the beta version, we have many awesome updates to come. This include co-op for PvP and PvE, story mode, crafting and more. We are truly excited in sharing more with the Unity community and will continue to post weekly updates here just for you.

    We look forward to answering your questions.
