Gosh, it’s been a long time since we mentioned Blade Symphony, way back in the mists of mod-time. But following a successful Kickstarter the game is now in beta (backers have their access) and it’s soon to arrive on Valve’s big nozzle of game delivery. What is Blade Symphony? Well, it’s a sword-fighting game running on a modified version of the Portal 2 engine. Project lead Michael Chang explains his motivation: “I wanted to restore the glorious Jedi Knight II saber dueling combat from the mid-early 2000s and so I started a mod and began recruiting people.”
Needless to say, it looks pretty good, as you can see from the video below.
