Bound By Flame – Action RPG Announced

It seems that Spiders Studio don’t believe in a quiet life, as, not content with working to finish Mars War Logs, they have also been beavering away on the newly-revealed Bound By Flame.  This action RPG, to be published by Focus Home Interactive, sees the player take the role of a mercenary possessed, rather inconveniently, by a flame demon.  Thanks to this dark passenger, players will have the choice to go down the naughty path and develop demonic powers, or otherwise play the goody-goody and shun the demon’s evil influence in order to cultivate heroic abilities.

If you think Luke was tempted to turn to the dark side then Bound By Flame promises more temptation in order to defeat the legions of lethal enemies that will be thrown at the player.  Are the seductive dark powers worth the cost of your soul, however?  Regardless, player choices will give a different game experience and even change the look of the protagonist, depending on the path they choose. Throw in real-time battles, unlockable skill-trees, character customisation, a crafting system, and player companions with whom you can make love or war (we’re not sure on specifics yet, so don’t take that literally) and Bound By Flame is sounding like a well-rounded and intriguing title.

The game is heading for release in the dark side of 2013 on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.

    This sounds pretty awesome actually! It’s a wee bit disappointing to hear that it’s only being released on the older generations of consoles but hopefully the PC version will be inline with the top new games as this does sound like a very interesting concept indeed!

    I agree with you, Forbesy, it sounds pretty good. I love the idea of a ‘dark passenger’ and the temptation to give in to the dark side. I think that’s how I’ll play it if I pick it up… who could resist the taste of evil anyway… I heard it is like fizzy cherry cola bottles.
