Rusty Blade is a short and touching adventure made for the A Game By It’s Cover 2017 Jam, that sees you trying to earn enough XP to gain your last level in a fictional MMORPG.
You have played the “Mark of the Ogre” MMO to death, joined clans and levelled up, and now you are at level 98. You embarked on your last quest some time ago, the final one before you become the highest level possible. It’s a simple quest, kill off some vicious Cinderhounds that have taken over someone’s cabin. You went into this thinking you could get it done in one session, then something strange happened…
One of the blood hounds didn’t attack you. Actually, that hound seems to be your friend and wants to be your pet. You are so close to being the maxed out level, but on the other hand, this dog clearly loves you. You can read through your conversations with your clan and with the customer support about this situation, but most people don’t seem to understand. You can continue the quest and kill off this new friend of yours, or you can just stay in a cabin with your new four legged friend, some coffee, and a bone to throw.
Rusty Blade gives you two very clear choices and it’s yours to decide what’s next. You are very close to being the master of the game, however, your love for this animal might stop you. This little adventure will tug at your heart as you play and find out more about the game.
