May 21, 2013 - Blaze Epic

The Action/Adventure game, samurai_jazz, is now available on Desura for $2.99 (USD).
http://store.steampowered.com



Taking ques from both film-noir and samurai-drama's of old, "samurai_jazz" is a pseudo 8-bit hack'n'slash game with an abstract adventure for players to experience. But what sets this game apart from the norm of the genre is it's demand for a more strategic approach to the combat, with each type of enemy requiring it's own unique strategy to overcome and it's graphic novel-like presentation.

While the adventure side is a bit lite, players will find themselves engaging in quirky dialogue with local towns folk, solving puzzles, exploring the enigmatic city, and learning more about the ronin who takes on the role of the protagonist of this tale.

Expect a fresh-yet-familiar experience with fight scenes that play out like classic samurai films within a film-noir setting. There's action, adventure, and a jazzy atmosphere backed by it's ambient soundtrack. Check out the demo for samurai_jazz here:

It's actually pretty fun and challenging so I recommend everyone to give it a shot...

May 20th of 2013 is when samurai_jazz will be available to the public through Desura.
The game itself is a pseudo 8-bit hack'n'slash with an atmosphere taking inspiration from samurai drama and film-noir cinema. But what sets this hack'n'slash apart from the others is the game's demand for more strategic thought when approaching each of the action scenarios, rather than the straight forward, button-mashing solutions commonly resolving the battles fought throughout the genre. Instead, players must defeat strategically placed enemies of different varieties who require unique strategies to defeat.

It's adventure side has players strolling through an enigmatic city, engaging in quirky dialogue with the locals, doing them favors, solving puzzles, and learning about the ronin whom you play as. There are plenty of varied environments to explore presented in a graphic novel format with an atmospheric soundtrack to set a jazzy tone for the player to take in during the adventure.
