About the Game - Straight from the Devs

SWORDY is a local party brawler with chaotic physics-based action. Master the weapons of war, using momentum and timing to fight for your life in a world built on the bones of a ruined empire. 

GAMEPLAY 

Our unconventional twin stick control scheme lets you wreak havoc on your opponents. Analogue sticks and triggers directly translate into character and weapon control, enabling you to time your swings, throws and stabs. Swordy’s weapons and damage model are completely physics based, you’ll need to master the momentum and weight of your character and weapon together to fight effectively. It’s easy to pick up but leaves a lot of space for mastery.

MELEE

In SWORDY you will wield and engage with a variety of weapon types and fighting tactics. Slashing, stabbing, piercing crushing, cleaving, throwing, and dual wielding are available in the form of swords, knives, hammers, flails, axes, shields and more as we develop.

GAME MODES

We are working on a variety of competitive, cooperative and party game modes. You will be able to refine your skills against AI players, compete against your friends or fight together through the challenges of a harsh and mysterious land.

WORLD

The world of Swordy is set in the ruins of an ancient age. Forests, deserts, plains and mountains hold what’s left of the sacred sites of cultures long since fallen.

  • Nex Machina Review

    Not all efforts in nostalgia end in success, but with Nex Machina, Housemarque has crafted a fast and fun twin-stick shooter with crisp visuals and challenging gameplay. Flawed only by a problematic mouse adaptation, Nex Machina is a solid execution of a gaming genre staple that promises long nights with guns blazing (instead of sleep).

  • Mr. Donovan Early Access Review

    Although some of the new ideas in Mr. Donovan are appreciated, what exactly was supposed to be fueling the motivation to play remains a mystery. For an action RPGs, there’s not enough loot or action; for a survival game there’s not enough survival or base-building. In the end, however, Mr. Donovan was right: who wouldn’t want to leave that planet?
