App description: One of the Best iPhone and iPad Games of 2012: Action- TouchArcade

Pocket Tactics' Action Game of the Year!

God of Blades now fills your iPhone 5 screen with gorgeous, sword-swinging pulp fantasy!

5/5 TouchArcade!
"The tortured, veiny world the art conjures and the surreal music it uses to bolster its paranoid sci-fi vibe are both riveting aspects that suck you into a surreal universe and doesn't let go."

8/10 Edge Magazine!
"God Of Blades enhances its glorious alien bloodshed with lavish presentation that blends the pulp sensibilities of paperback fantasy novels with the bizarre visions found on prog rock album covers."

4.5/5 148 Apps!
"Theres nothing quite like it on the App Store, and it's fun to boot. All hail God of Blades!"

5/5/ AppSpy!
"...there's not an inch of this game that isn't dripping with a strangely appealing other-worldly sheen."

A love-song to pulp fantasy tales of yore, 70s synth-prog-landscape oddities, and forgotten places, God of Blades is a gorgeous, visceral sidescrolling physics-based sword-fighting adventure.

Praise for God of Blades:

Cripes. So many reasons to like this. The pulpy sci fi narrative, the prog rock lettering and album art backdrops, the spectral swordsmen and the fearsome sense of connection. God of Blades is pretty much glorious, basically. - Christian Donlan, Hookshot Inc.

...we were reminded of Shadow of the Beast for some reason probably because of the music and the setting... thats a very good thing.- Chris Priestman, IndieGameMag

The White Whale Games crew has gone above and beyond demonstrating their devotion to stories and literature, and [Loreseeker] is one of the most creative and brilliant ways they could have possibly conceived to get people to go to those incredible repositories of human knowledge known as libraries. - Brad Hilderbrand, Gamezebo

With their upcoming title God of Blades, the small indie developer has created an intriguing mashup of iOS genres. - A.T. Faust III, AppAdvice.com

God of Blades is dripping with style - Jim Squires, Gamezebo

You need to put the video code (the number and alphabet string after v=) into [ youtube][ /youtube] (without spaces). Like this:


YouTube: video

Consult the forum FAQ for further instructions.

PS: I assume that laserwolf is the one with the beard.

and looki-look, a cute lady. why isn't she here?
Great, thanks! Looks like I just needed to remove the "www".

Something I learned from the video that hasn't been mentioned here, if I am not mistaken, is the novel use of ragdoll physics, something which has never before been implemented in this context. It explains the noticeable sense of realism in the combat sequences.

Nope, I'm the one with glasses. The one with the beard is The Moon Ladder

You all should be proud everything you planned back in the days (from rich background to rag doll physics) is really transparent in the game now making it so damn awesome.

BTW....I see in that video some scenes I do not remember from the campaign!!!
Like a king point forward a sword and having an army following...how is that?
New content coming? Canned scenes?

First, thanks for the flip-screen dear Devs, very much
appriciated. Your game is my most played since/with
Blood Roofs. Both, vibes and atmosphere are way beyond
of any other games i played for the last months.
You hit my "G-point".
Unfortunately i won't be able to unlock the rest of the swords,
because i don't have access to the library, english is not my
native language and i don't have the time to read that much to
investigate. Glad, i have some time to play games at all.
So, for once (people will nail me to the cross) i wish to have
an IAP to unlock the rest. Easily worth the extra money, to me.

Btw, my best score is with Whisper (just ten minutes ago, 474k).
And congrats to all who solved the puzzle.

Again... Not surprisingly, another successful Whisper user. No other weapon comes close it seems.

For the three Loreseeker swords you don't need to investigate anything, you just need to show up at a library and turn on your game (provided that you have an Internet connection accessible.)

Finally got around to playing a bit with the Sword of Welleran, and man... That thing cuts through Slayers like a hot knife through butter. Quite fun Lack of special hurts a bit, but it'd be way to powerful if it did have one.

Anyway, if it's not to much trouble, I'd really love to see a synopsis of every kind of hint you guys left on the site now that the riddle's been solved. I'm especially curious now to see how the song ties in.

Try going to a library in a big city like Manila. I'm sure those libraries will be listed on 4square.
