Blood will be Spilled is an original action game with a turn-based combat system, in which we move to the Wild West inhabited by hominoidal insects. Production developer is an independent Slovak Doublequote studio, based in Bratislava. The game is the team's debut project. The creators were inspired by classical westerns, especially films of the genre produced in Italy.
Blood will be Spilled takes place in a cartoon world inhabited by insects. In the course of the game we accompany the mosquito Jack, who chose the dangerous profession of a prize hunter. The protagonist travels from town to town, hunting for dangerous criminals. Soon, however, he gets into trouble and gets entangled in an affair that may end his life. In order to capture his target, i.e. the four bosses of the dangerous Calaveras gang, he has to gather allies and prepare an appropriate plan. The story is presented in film interludes, dialogues and spoken narration accompanying the game.
Blood will be Spilled resembles at first glance two-dimensional side-scroll platformers or shooters. Since the main character fights almost always with an overwhelming number of opponents, the creators introduced a turn-based combat system into the game. Thanks to it, we can calmly plan every next move, hide behind obstacles, use elements of the environment for our purposes, or suck blood from fallen enemies.
Jack has a total of twelve active and three passive skills, which are assigned to the hero's three paths of development - "good", "bad" and "ugly". In our arsenal there are seven models of revolvers, with different impact force and range. In addition to the four bosses of the gang, we also fight a total of nine types of opponents. It is worth mentioning that individual locations are full of various secrets and references to western cinema.
Blood will be Spilled has a full two-dimensional graphic design that uses hand drawn and animated models of characters and backgrounds. The authors of the title have tried to create a professional acting dubbing of the production. The main role will be played by Elias Toufexis, known for his role of Adam Jensen in the Deus Ex series. The party is accompanied by an atmospheric guitar-acoustic music track.
