    God of Blades has the honor to have been funded by a Kickstarter campaign. This is something that some of the most popular web series, comic books and charity projects can claim. In terms of getting projects viewers and players really want out there, this is the wave of the future, in my humble opinion. You play as a spectre, either as the Nameless King or the Whispering Lady. You run into a world that might have come off the cover of a book from the seventies (the graphics are lovely, by the way) and battle hordes of enemies with a series of blades that you unlock as you go along. One extra cool feature is a special blade that you unlock with Foursquare by playing the game in a library! There are 26 stages if you’re playing in campaign mode. You battle enemies as you run forward, beating them into submission, with bosses that appear every few levels. If a high score is your thing, try eternal mode, where you run on and on, putting down the bad guys until you feel your place on the leader boards is secure. There are really only three moves here. You sweep your finger up, down and forward to slice with different skills. It’s a simple game, all in all, but it’s actually quite a bit of fun to play. Even more fun is tossing your enemy into another one to topple them like bowling pins. There are combos and each blade you manage to unlock in campaign mode has different abilities.

Nominee- New York Videogame Critics Circle for Best Mobile Game One of the Best Games of 2012: Action- TouchArcade

Pocket Tactics' 2012 Action Game of the Year!

5/5 TouchArcade!
"The tortured, veiny world the art conjures and the surreal music it uses to bolster its paranoid sci-fi vibe are both riveting aspects that suck you into a surreal universe and doesn't let go."

8/10 Edge Magazine!
"God Of Blades enhances its glorious alien bloodshed with lavish presentation that blends the pulp sensibilities of paperback fantasy novels with the bizarre visions found on prog rock album covers."

A love-song to pulp fantasy tales of yore, 70s synth-prog-landscape oddities, and forgotten places, God of Blades is a gorgeous, visceral sidescrolling physics-based sword-fighting adventure.

Praise for God of Blades:

“Cripes. So many reasons to like this. The pulpy sci fi narrative, the prog rock lettering and album art backdrops, the spectral swordsmen and the fearsome sense of connection. God of Blades is pretty much glorious, basically.” - Christian Donlan, Hookshot Inc.

“...we were reminded of Shadow of the Beast for some reason – probably because of the music and the setting... that’s a very good thing.”- Chris Priestman, IndieGameMag

“The White Whale Games crew has gone above and beyond demonstrating their devotion to stories and literature, and [Loreseeker] is one of the most creative and brilliant ways they could have possibly conceived to get people to go to those incredible repositories of human knowledge known as libraries.” - Brad Hilderbrand, Gamezebo

“God of Blades is dripping with style” - Jim Squires, Gamezebo

Wrenching this world from the grasp of oblivion, the Nameless King wields phantom blades forged from the legends and heritage of a dying world.

Raise your blade, and rush into the darkness!
