Beats and Blades is a 3D beat'em up that mixes trap music (hip-hop) with fast-paced epic battles! This game is developed to help players discover new music producers from all over the world!

Beats and Blades is created by ZikWave Studios Inc., a new independent game studio based in Montreal. This project is meant to promote new artists from everywhere! In this game players fight an evil organization that tries to recruit people with special abilities. These people can materialize katanas and perform special attacks. They can also control light around them what you can see in the pre-alpha trailer is their interpretation of the music playing in the background. Terrell and Claire, the 2 playable characters, refused to join the organization and will soon learn that this puts them in great danger. The organization is composed of very dangerous and experienced people.

The gameplay is inspired by Ninja Gaiden with some elements taken from DmC too. We also added mechanics like the possibility to switch between characters on the fly to use their special abilities. Here is the pre-alpha trailer No. 2

In the final game you'll get:

-more enemies, more powers, more moves

-improved level design

-improved character design


-20 beats from new artists

-adaptive difficulty
