Archeblade is a third-person view fighting game that users fight along with multiple players in real time. Users control one of several characters, each with a strong personality based on the fantasy novel ‘Archeblade’. It is aimed at players of classic fighting games such as Street fighter, Tekken, or Soulcalibur as well as MOBA games.
Which character will you choose based on various attacking styles? Will you prefer to fight with, a gun, a sword, a hammer, a scythe or even a magic bullet?
It’s your call.
We have an agreement with Steam to publish the game on their platform. The game will be found in the free-to-play section of Steam. The game is currently in development, and is scheduled for release in March 2013.
- MULTIPLAYER FIGHTING GAME
Users can choose from various characters, each with a strong and distinctive profile. Each character uses their own style of weapons and skills. A total 13 characters are available for now, but there will be more to come.
Archeblade supports up to 7vs7 battle for now. Cooperate with your friends against other opponents.
- INCREASE YOUR SKILL
Archeblade provides a fighting-game-style combo system that uses a configuration of 9 keyboard buttons (w, a, s, d, e, f, shift, alt, and space), along with two mouse buttons. Users can make their own moves and combos by combining these buttons. Try to make as many combos as you can. And do your special move!
The user engages opponents in several arenas with different objectives. Choose your arena as a game mode: team death match, capture the pylon, free-for-all, etc. More maps are coming!
- STRONG STORY LINE
Archeblade is based on the fantasy novel called ‘Archeblade’ written by a professional fantasy novel writer, Junghoon Hong. The storyline gives users extra motivation to play the game.
Users can take advantages of Steam features such as digital distribution, achievement, community features, automated game updates, in-game voice, and chat functionality.
- FREE TO PLAY
Archeblade is free to play! All you need is steam ID. Don’t hesitate to invite your friends over to battle. More friends, more fun.

MORE CHARACTERS ARE COMING
From last August 31 to September 10, there was a closed-beta test of Archeblade. Except a couple of initial hiccups, it was rather smooth and was very instructive, making it a success for us. The testers reports and suggestions have been tremendously helpful to us and we are just asking for more now and push us to make Archeblade better and better.
Our next CBT is scheduled for January next year.
We are expecting that Kickstarter will allow us to make this game better in terms of quality and fun. With your generous donation, we will get more MP (man power) such as a programmer, a level artist, an illustrator, a QA and etc. More MP raises up the level of completion of the game for sure.
Besides the financial aspect, Kickstarter will also help our game’s popularity. We want more people to know about our game and more users to play the game. We would love to hear wide and critical feedback from the users, and we will listen and respond to them graciously.
Our goal for this project is getting the funds up to $100,000. All the funds we get are going to be used only for Archeblade development, either for hardware equipment or MP.

Thank you for taking your time to check out our project. More updates and any progress will be posted as soon as possible. Stay tuned!
If you have any question, please leave a comment in the comments section above. We’ll happily answer those questions. We hope see you guys in the game soon.
Have a good one, Archebladers!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We successfully ended the closed-beta test for the game via Steam. Of course, there was couple of problems as to be expected in a beta version, and we didn't have those experience before. I still remember the 1st day of the CBT when the whole team members were up all night. No one complained about it because we knew that we had to keep our promises to the users.
All we are about now is the completion of the game. The systematic structure is set up and ready to produce extra contents such as additional characters, skins, and items. With the limited resources (finance & human resource), it is challenging to make them plenty.
However, as we did during the CBT, we will manage it to be satisfying so that users can get a good amount content.
THE FINAL VERSION OF THE GAME WILL BE THERE ON MARCH 2013.
