The Flames of Spiders Abound
Clearly capitalising on the modest, though tangible success after the release of Mars: War Logs. Spiders have now shifted their Focus (Home Interactive, so witty!) to a fantasy setting with Bound by Flame. Quite a dramatic shift too I might add. Where the former was very grim and dirty, with a rough, drab, entirely reds and oranges palette, the latter is overbrimming with colour and lush vegetation to frolic in.
"Bound by Flame benefits from a bigger budget and extensive development planning allowing them to realize their great ambitions in this big action/role-playing game. Bound by Flame lets you play a mercenary possessed by a flame demon in an ambitious Dark Fantasy universe. As a victim of this demonic influence, players will have to choose between the powers offered by this evil or to reject the demonic influence, developing heroic talents instead."
Sounds reminiscent of Marvel's Ghostrider to me, albeit loosely. Which isn't at all a bad thing. How this will eventually play out remains to be seen of course, as this is still early days. But take a look at the screenshots, which already show a lot of promise, and pre-judge for yourself. I'm calling this as one to keep an eye on though. Perhaps it will be another under the radar game, like War Logs. But for those who try it, I'm certain it will be one to remember. But what do you think? Have Spiders proven themselves worthy of your pocket money as they have mine?
