The Game Awards are back. A one-night-only celebration of all things gaming live from the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Today December 8th, the best games from the year will be recognized and a ton of game announcements will be made. With that, we have a new look at Earthblade, a brand new side-scrolling indie game from the creators of Celeste. Celeste previously earned a nomination for the 2018 Game of the Year, eventually losing to God of War.
From developers Extremely OK Games, “You are Névoa, an enigmatic child of Fate returning at long last to Earth, in this explor-action platformer. Earthblade’s lush pixel art world offers seamless exploration, challenging combat, and countless mysteries to pick apart. Travel the remnants of a ruined world, encounter denizens both friend and foe, and piece together the Earth’s fractured history.”
Earthblade will release on nearly all platforms when it is ready sometime in 2024. For now, take a look at brand-new gameplay from the retro-inspired Earthblade.
