FrostFire shows off a good bit of gameplay in their first trailer
If you've been paying attention to indie games dev twitter in the past year, you've likely seen glimpses of FrostFire from SUMACHU Games, a small indie studio from Spain. It's a 2D title with hand-drawn animation, over the top action, and a comedic spin.
A few days ago, they released a gameplay trailer that allows us to get a better idea of how it actually plays and looks, with the obvious caveat that the projects is still a WIP.
If you're interested in the game, you might get a chance to see way more this year, as developers previously stated their intention to release a public alpha and a crowdfunding campaign sometime in 2022.
The game itself takes inspiration from several notable fighting games. The simple controls and blocking style of Fantasy Strike; rhythm, mechanics, and moveset design of Guilty Gear Strive; and the unique, character-specific mechanics of BlazBlue.
The current trailer also hints that there's more to come, with the next video likely showing off Shawn, one of the four currently revealed characters.
