Developer's Artistic Statement

I created Swords to see if I could make a fast paced game that was fairly simple to learn, fun to play, and had hidden depth and strategy. Something I also hoped to achieve is to capture the feeling of a sword fight in a card game, which I think I came pretty close to doing with the frantic multi-directional simultaneous gameplay. I hope that players feel excited and are able to develop their own strategies and playstyles. Some people play aggressively while others try to remain unnoticed and discard their cards stealthily, many styles seem to work well. Playing Swords is like having a real life multi-person sword fight... but way safer!

Swords is a title featured at IndieCade 2017.
