Devolver Digital announces an April 24th release date for Swords of Ditto, an
action/RPG from onebitbeyond that sounds like an homage to Diablo, the genre's
posted child for item duplication. They celebrate the news with
trailer showing off the game's adorably cute violence. Here's the skinny:
The delightful heroes at developer onebitbeyond and teeny tiny game label
Devolver Digital have announced their vibrant action RPG The Swords of Ditto
will launch April 24 on PlayStation 4 and PC [http://theswordsofditto.com].
The Swords of Ditto creates a series of unique, compact adventures for a new
hero every 100 years in a seemingly never-ending struggle against the evil Mormo.
Players will awaken as one of the chosen adventurers and wield the legendary
sword of the land through a dangerous and ever-changing overworld, diabolical
dungeons and secret lairs before ascending Mormo’s tower to face off with the
evil witch herself. Retrieve powerful new toys, slap on perk stickers, and
complete side quests to fill out your inventory as each new run is different
from the last. The only constant is the sword itself, as experience and power
gained for the sword in each adventure carries over to the hero’s successor.
Take down Mormo and the world is a happier, brighter place, but failure puts
Ditto and its poor citizens into a dark, crumbling version of their world. Make
this journey alone or invite a fellow champion for local cooperative play on
both PlayStation 4 and PC.
The Swords of Ditto developer onebitbeyond was created by former creative
director at Curve Studios Jonathan ‘Bidds’ Biddle and boasts a roster of top
game development veterans thrilled to work on their first project together.
Based out of London, onebitbeyond have been working on The Swords of Ditto since
late 2015 and will be demoing the game at PAX East 2018 in April.
