Braveheart:Fantasy Action-RPG Coming in December From Gaijin

Let's get one thing straight. Russian developer Gaijin has probably chosen the wrong name for this game.

It's nothing to do with Scotland or Mel Gibson. Instead this Braveheart is an action RPG that has you on a search for that old medieval favourite Holy Grail. Which is protected by a large dragon.

Oh, and you're a brave knight called Richard, who's armed with a laser gun.

Still, despite the branding confusion, it looks fairly decent, in terms of the released screenshots and video at least.

Control might seems to be an issue though as it appears you don't have direct control over Richard, instead tapping where you want him to move to, and only being able to attack when you're static.

Ten weapons such as lasers, hammers and crossbows, as well as magic spells to trigger fireballs or lightning will be available.

It also looks like it will provide some inventory and role-playing levelling up options, as well as plenty of achievements.

Expect more details to become available before Braveheart is released for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in December.

You can see how it plays in the following video.

Holey Moley! This looks quite good! A bit like a medial Diablo-style game

I wonder that nobody posted here yet!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

This came out of nowhere. Love the artstyle (reminds me of iDracula) and the attacks look varied and powerful.

No lasers.

You mentioned lasers. All I see is a crossbow shooting what look like lasers.

I can't tell you how disappointed I am that it isn't based on Braveheart the movie (my favorite movie ever), but it looks like it could be decent.

This looks a bit like Ghouls & Garters for the ambient & athmo. But I guess this one play a whole lot better.

I am so glad this isnīt base on that stupid movie.

But I admit I did not know the comics it is derived from either.
Last thing I remember in that direction was Death Dealer and that is A FEW years ago, already.
Anybody remember "Slaine" from Simon Bisley? That was a bad ass comic.
