Of Blades & Tails

Of Blades & Tails – An Upcoming 2D Pixel-art RPG

Turn-based Diablo, but you play as a fox!

Polish indie publisher Pineapple Works is thrilled to announce its new collaboration. Of Blades & Tails is a turn-based RPG that is action-oriented but rewards a thoughtful approach. The game is being developed by a talented German solo-dev, Felix Laukel. The game is coming to PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One/Series S/X in Q3 2023.

In Of Blades & Tails you play Reik, a clever member of the tribe of foxes. A chain of unfortunate events involves you in a quest of vital importance to all the peace-loving creatures of the realm. You will have to leave your home village and explore the world to become strong enough to stand up to evil.

The gameplay is inspired by classic Hack & Slays and turn-based RPGs like Tales of Maj’Eyal or Stoneshard. The lore is inspired by the classic point & click adventure Inherit the Earth. The developer personally thinks about the game as Diablo, but turn-based with a more strategic approach, in a vibrant animalistic setting and with lots of secrets to explore.
