A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
Covenant Blade is a miniature, finish-in-one-sitting action game. Use the power of your sword to defeat enemies and vanquish the evil that has cursed your land for centuries.
However, beware: the great evil you have heard of so many times might not be what it seems.
Besides some sound effects, this game was entirely created by me. All the art and music, and even the font are original. Credits for sound effects are in the game's credits page.
Thanks a bunch to SheatNoisette for testing and general design advice.
Also thanks to sleepylemonbug's livestreams for motivation and comfy background (and foreground) entertainment.
And thanks to Tristan for being an amazing friend!
This is my first (hopefully of many!) fully polished project that I'm happy with, so I hope you can get some fun out of it too!

Thanks!! Looks really nice, love the editing
Even a small game can be fantastic, I'm impressed
it does suck that when you go back into a room you have to fight the enemy's all over again and if you accidentally walk back into the room you just came out of it can get annoying.
You're right, I thought long and hard about this kind of problem, and didn't really find a solution that I liked. That's why you can't go back from some areas, but obviously I couldn't do that everywhere as backtracking is necessary at some points. Thanks for the feedback!
Really cool Game The boss fight was really fun and the feel of the game was really good
Awesome, thanks! I loved your playthrough, especially the epic voice when reading the cutscenes, and how you called the enemies "coronavirus" LOL
Super cool game! Loved the music, and definitely looking forward to your other projects!
I love the story behind the game! will there be updates?
Thanks so much! This was made as a small game, just so that I could focus on finishing and polishing. Honestly, the code is kind of messy in some parts. I don't wanna make promises, but if I develop the story a bit more and people wanna see more, I might partly remake the game cleaner and add more levels/bosses etc.
Хороший геймдизайн и графика, но маленькая продолжительность
