If you’ve ever played close attention to Devolver Digital’s Twitter account, then you may have seen them retweet a few non-Devolver indie games in progress, such as Eastward or Dead Static Drive. One of those games has been Bleak Sword, a dark fantasy game from developers More8Bit.

The announcement of this development naturally comes with a new trailer in tow, which you can check out below. The action game sees players trying to lift the curse of the titular sword, fighting their way through nine chapters full of deadly creatures. These all take play out on various dioramas that merge 3D with 2D pixel art, making for quite the sight. The game also boasts combat and controls perfectly suited for both though screens and gamepads, and we’ll see how this all plays out when Bleak Sword launches with the rest of Apple Arcade on September 19.
