Hamlet Games has revealed a short gameplay teaser for its upcoming pixel art title, Emberbane. The 23-second video featured some of the protagonist’s abilities and enemies.
Emberbane is described as a pixel-art action adventure with metroidvania elements. The game’s protagonist, Ophelia, uses a combat style that mixes the four elements of matter with unique abilities. The studio states that the idea’s inspiration came from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Hamlet Games has set its mission statement as striving to create stories for gamers, by gamers. The Istanbul-based studio was founded in 2021 and has been working on Emberbane for quite a while. The title, which will be launched on Switch, Xbox One X, PlayStation 4, and PC, was initially announced on July 18, 2022, with an announcement trailer.
Emberbane will feature boss fights, seven different arcs with unique themes, fluid controls, mythology, multiple endings where gamers can shape the story, and, as Hamlet Games has stated, “One of the coolest protagonists ever.” The game’s release date is set for May 2023.
