Far Blade looks like a very unique 3D boss rush adventure

Posted by , | Views: 3,605

We have a huge amount of games with a pixel art style but rarely do they look as unique as the boss rush adventure game Far Blade.

What makes it somewhat unique, is that it uses "a specialized technique that generates 3d models with a pixel art style". If you take a look at the trailer below, you will see just how fascinating it looks:

What also has me interested in this one, is that the developer says it's a hand-crafted adventure, so there's no random generation at play here. Random generation can be good of course, there's plenty of games that do it well enough but properly crafted experiences tend to be a lot more interesting to play through.

Currently in Early Access, it's being developed by a single person which includes the art and coding. They're hoping to get enough funding through their current Early Access release to work with a composer on some unique music for it.

It has a Linux version available and you can find it on itch.io.

Reminds me of playing 3D games in 320x240 resolution on a CRT because my PC was so slow. Funny how they try to sell a quick and dirty full screen pixelize shader as a cool thing.

I like real pixel graphics because of how sharp hand crafted pixel graphics look... but this isn't comparable to that at all.

The graphic style reminds me more Another World to be honest.

I guess this can be called voxel art style?

It's actually not voxels. Some details on implementation: https://twitter.com/BcubedLabs/status/1112530396523065344

Funny, those new (?) genres that should - I guess - tell me what this game is about but do nothing but confuse me.

"Boss Rush", "Roque-Lite" ... and so on.

LOL

We're getting old xD

To me seems like a Zelda-esque game. The art reminds me of Little Big Adventure and the original Outcast, somehow.

Hyper Light Drifter vibe.. Which comes as compliment, ofc
