Here’s a little title that was recently brought to my attention and which had piqued my interest. Bazalth: Don’t Trust The Signs! is a 3D action / adventure / beat’em up of sorts that will involve some light puzzle elements which will be thrown in for good measure. The announcement trailer doesn’t reveal too much in the way of gameplay with the exception of a brief snippet near the end of the trailer, but what’s there does look good so far, particularly for a small indie development team consisting of only 3 people. Helium Games plans to make the game available across multiple platforms such as Windows, Mac, and Linux with a projected release date sometime in late 2014.
“Once upon a time, on a planet far far away, lived some cute and peaceful creatures called Gloupsies. Happy and innocent, living a dream life. The only small problem they had was about their demon infestation. Every 28 days (on Fridays), their village would be attacked by powerful demons who destroys everything. One morning, an old stranger arrived out of nowhere, carrying a strange package. This stranger, called Folm, explained that he also suffered from the demons attacks: First of all he said, we have to relocate your village Yeah… Gloupsies were actually rebuilding their village at the same place over and over again. So much wisdom quickly convinced the Gloupsies who welcomed Folm as their savior. However, this is just a temporary solution, he continued, I’ve brought someone who can in time help us defeat those evil demons forever. We have to fight evil with evil! Here is Bazalth, one of their own.”
Some of the features you’ll find in Bazalth:
- Action packed
- Challenging puzzles
- No 8bit pixels! Tremendous 3D models
- Power ups!
Obviously this is just a glimpse of what’s to come. I’m hoping that Bazalth turns out to be the great 3D action / beat’em up that it could possibly become. For now we’ll just have to wait and see.
