Blade Ballet is simple enough for anyone to pick up a controller and jump into the fray, but players must master the timing and unique abilities of each bot to come out on top. This makes the game easily accessible to new players, while allowing for a high skill ceiling to truly compete with your friends. Much of the Blade Ballet gameplay revolves around the innovative “blade spin” mechanic – players control their rotation to sneak past their opponents’ defenses and secure the kill. Each arena also introduces new game mechanics that players must incorporate into their strategies.
Blade Ballet is being developed by DreamSail Games. The DreamSail team is comprised of talented industry veterans and newcomers, including founder Justin Sanders (formerly of Insomniac Games), Kevin Porras (formerly of Scholastic), and Nicholas Gomes (formerly of Large Animal Games), and Neil Sveri (co-founder of Studio Mercato).
