Chinese developer, ‘Wildfire Games’ were once a modding studio for Age of Empires 2, but went independent because of AoE2’s limitations. Recently, they have created an open-source source strategy game called 0.A.D, which is releasing in 2019 for free!
Interesting, now it seems they are diving into something completely different with a side-scrolling action RPG. This will be called ‘The Oriental Exorcist’, which is set to be released on PS4 and Steam in 2020!
Here is an overview of the game from its Steam page:
The Oriental Exorcist is a stunning 2D side-scrolling action RPG set in a fictitious oriental world with the infestation of vicious demon monsters. Play as a skilled exorcist against chaotic evil to fight your way through the brutal world, and experience unforeseen entanglements of complex beings.
Fantasy World – As a “Exorcist,” you will go through various shapes and forms of area during the way of the execute, all in form of hand-painted, showing the vibrant fantasy world of the East.
Frame-by-Frame Animation – Adopting the hand-drawn frame-by-frame animation method, the battle and actions of the characters in the game makes each stroke of the “Dragon Man” show the best expressiveness and smooth combat experience.
Demon Slayer – Adding Stamina setting to the game, which makes the combat experience more focused on the timing and distance, players can find their own way of “execute” with different types of skills.
Human State – Using cross-line interlude narrative drive stories to present a bloody and fleshy image of the execute, and the people that two protagonists encounter on the way to the execute are hidden behind their own stories.
