About The Game

Paying homage to the classic side-scrolling beat’em up arcade games, the Sword of the Guardian is a new action video game that honours those iconic features like command-based attacks and throwing objects, with further enhancement on specially curated combos and intriguing scenes. The game introduces three main characters with different fighting styles for players to choose from, which also support up to three local players. Each of the characters can perform distinctive types of attacks: the Swordsman is an all-rounded fighter with a wide attacking area; the Monk performs a variety of combos with his fast punches and kicks; and the Dwarf has the highest defense and counter attack ability, as well as some heavy attacks.

The background of the story is about the protagonist, the Swordsman, who returns to his birthplace, the Arc Village, and discovers that it has been destroyed since the ruling of the new villain landlord. In order to protect his beloved village and rescue his childhood friends, he starts his adventure to fight against the evil enemies.

This game has been developed by an individual developer who has spent three years’ time on design, programme and visual effect on his own.
 

Proposed Release Platform

Story

The story began in Northies, one of the separate kingdoms in the medieval time, where a violent and cruel political coup was happening. Regarded as the fiercest warrior since the beginning of kingdom, Lord Gran was suddenly charged with treason and beheaded when the new young king was crowned and ruled. All his loyal followers and servants were also exiled or assassinated. Posing threats to the kingdom, the conspiracy was believed to be spearheaded by the sadistic leader of the Holy Army, Lord Barnett, who was rising to power in the church and among the nobility, and ultimately, controlling the new king.

10 years ago, when Lord Gran was severely wounded in a war, he was saved from death by a kid and his villagers. In order to show his gratitude, he taught and trained the kid to fight with a sword and offered the villagers an abundance of resources. After his death, for the fear of oppression, Lord Barnett massacred the whole village in the name of purging infidels. Having learnt of the brutal truth, the kid who managed to escape was determined to find out the reason of Lord Gran’s death and take revenge, accompanied by his buddies met in his journey.
