The Swords of Ditto is a unique rogue-like RPG in that the game takes place over several hundreds of years, and instead of the progression or story being tied to the character, it is unique to the legend of the sword. I remember following the development of The Swords of Ditto on Twitter from the developer, onebitbeyond as I was an avid fan of previous Curve Studio releases and they showed an evolving world in which with each new playthrough, the world aged.
Apart from that, I don’t know much more so below is a video of the top down gameplay and a description from the press release. I’m certainly looking forward to checking this game out when it releases in April!
The delightful heroes at developer onebitbeyond and teeny tiny game label Devolver Digital have announced their vibrant action RPG The Swords of Ditto will launch April 24 on PlayStation 4 and PC.
The Swords of Ditto creates a series of unique, compact adventures for a new hero every 100 years in a seemingly never-ending struggle against the evil Mormo. Players will awaken as one of the chosen adventurers and wield the legendary sword of the land through a dangerous and ever changing overworld, diabolical dungeons, secret lairs, and ascend Mormo’s tower to face off with the evil witch herself. Retrieve powerful new toys, slap on perk stickers, and complete side quests to fill out your inventory as each new run is different from the last. The only constant is the sword itself, as experience and power gained for the sword in each adventure carries over to the hero’s successor. Take down Mormo and the world is a happier, brighter place, but failure puts Ditto and its poor citizens into a dark, crumbling version of their world. Make this journey alone or invite a fellow champion for local cooperative play on both PlayStation 4 and PC.
The Swords of Ditto developer onebitbeyond was created by former creative director at Curve Studios Jonathan ‘Bidds’ Biddle and boasts a roster of top game development veterans thrilled to work on their first project together. Based out of London, onebitbeyond have been working on The Swords of Ditto since late 2015 and will be demoing the game at PAX East 2018 in April. The Swords of Ditto arrives on PlayStation 4 and PC April 24. Excited adventurers can follow the game’s progress and latest news as theswordsofditto.com or @onebitbeyond on Twitter.
