God of Blades devs talk Jim Henson, obscure horror & more

Watch Sup, Holmes? every Sunday on Dtoid.TV!

At first glance, I figured that God of Blades (on sale now for $.99 on iOS) was another game that plays it safe. It’s got expensive-looking graphics, a fantasy setting, and a focus on swordplay. Boy was I wrong. God of Blades rewards you with all new in-game weapons if you bring your iDevice to real-life libraries. That’s just scratching the surface of the ways the game walks its own path. 

If you’d like to get to know the upstart scamps that co-created this strange but easily digestable action title, their full episode of Sup, Holmes? is available now on YouTube and iTunes. Thanks again to Jo Lammert and George Royer for hanging out. This Sunday we have James Kochalka, comics legend and artist on the upcoming Glokbot’s Mini Adventure

"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1 "The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
