Die by the Blade Kickstarter Campaign Now Live!

Press Releases

Your chance to boost the ongoing development of the genre defining one-hit-kill sword fighting game

Košice, Slovak Republic – 13th October, 2020. Publisher Grindstone and developers Triple Hill Interactive and Toko Midori are thrilled to announce that the Kickstarter campaign for the highly anticipated one-hit-kill sword fighting game Die by the Blade is now live!

The Die by the Blade Kickstarter campaign aims to engage with fans and build an community to support the next phase of this exciting project. There are many pledge levels with fantastic game inspired rewards available where fans can get involved, become backers and in turn help shape the future of this highly anticipated, spiritual successor to some of the best classic sword fighting games ever released.

Die by the Blade has been in development for some time, so the game will definitely launch next year under the current development plan and budget. However, with the support of the fans and the community, a successful Kickstarter campaign will further elevate Die by the Blade to an exceptional game, delivering a unique gameplay experience and setting a new benchmark of excellence in the genre. 

Fighting games, in general, have a super hard core audience and are designed to be challenging. For this project to exceed the quality fans will expect from a fighting game in 2021, the team plans to implement more realistic animations, great sound effects, an engrossing story and atmospheric soundtrack. So the money raised through Kickstarter will be used to expand on the current gameplay experience with higher quality animations using motion capture technology, expand the character roster and add in even more weapons. If the campaign hits the stretch goals, then additional exciting content could be added like ranged weapons and different combat styles. 

Take a look at the Die by the Blade official Kickstarter video and get involved in this exciting project and reveal your inner warrior. 

Drawing inspiration from legendary combat games like Bushido Blade and Way of the Samurai, Die by the Blade is a one-hit-kill sword fighting action game where players must take up their weapons and face off against deadly opponents. Choose your character, select your blade and engage in 1 vs 1 combat where the slightest mistake could seal your fate. Become a master of your craft and fight to the death with other players in tense, fast paced multiplayer matches or slash through tough AI enemies in the thrilling single player campaign.
