Bound By Flame
Bound by Flame is an action RPG from French studio Spiders, developers of Of Orcs and Men, and Mars: War Logs. The game is set in a world ravaged by seven Ice Lords and their Dead-Army, and has players control Vulcan, a mercenary who finds himself possessed by a flame demon. The player has the choice of letting the demonic influence consume the player character and welcome the dark talents that come with it, or rejecting the influence and retaining the player character’s humanity. Vulcan is customizable and the player can choose to make the default male character a female if they wish. The game features music by Olivier Derivière, the award-winning composer behind Remember Me and Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry.
The game features three skill trees for players to explore: the Fighter, who wields heavy weapons and has the ability to interrupt enemies by pushing or kicking them; the Ranger, who uses dual daggers and can dodge to evade enemy attacks; and the Pyromancer, who uses flame spells to deal heavy damage when attacking enemies and enchant weapons found in the other two skill trees. Skill trees also provide access to various traps and abilities that allow players to deal with enemies in ways other than simply striking them with a weapon. The game features a crafting system that allows players to improve on their equipment, or to create new equipment entirely, such as armor or weapons. The player is also aided by a host of companions who can like, love or hate the player and fight alongside the player against the creatures of Vertiel. The real-time combat of the game demands swift reaction, and sharp tactics.
The game is divided into various chapters, which will offer varied scenarios and experiences depending on the influence of the demon on the player. The player can engage in both a main quest and many side-quests that are centered around the main quest. The game features three distinct endings that are based around the level of control that the player chose to give to the demonic influence sweeping over Vulcan.
