Fireplace Games has announced a new pirate adventure game. Entitled En Garde!, the game was unveiled during the Future Games Show Summer Showcase. Check out the trailer below.
En Garde! puts players in the shoes of Adalia De Volador, as seen in the trailer, with an emphasis on smooth, fluid combat and movement. Volador is described as a playful heroine who resists tyranny. In addition to the usual moves you would expect from a sword-fighting hero, Volador can also pick up random objects and throw them at her enemies, and even arrange comical objects to fall from the air onto their heads.
Combat in the game focuses on real-time combat, with players constantly dodging, dodging and parrying to fight their way through enemies. The game also has two different game modes, story mode and an arena mode where you can try out all of Volador’s combat skills.
Visually, En Garde! has hand-painted backgrounds in addition to the 3D environments. The game also has a free demo you can try out on Steam.
