War of the Sword

September 25, 2017 | View comments


Scholars still struggle to define War of the Sword, but universally hold it to be the most important artistic work ever created. Limitless in depth and unfathomable in profundity, it is a powerful and moving exploration of a simple question: what if every person were given a sword? It invites its audience to embark on a deeply personal journey, one which leads to a devastatingly insightful conclusion.

Some say that War of the Sword is an extremely difficult fighting game, featuring:

b1 Fast paced combat based on reflexes and spamming!

b2 Dramatic 19 act single-player campaign! Glorious hotseat multiplayer!

b3 Woo! Quality voice acting and jarring soundtrack!

b4 Swords! Murder! Patricide!

You can get War of the Sword II, plus its fabulous prequel, here (Windows only). There is modding support – completely undocumented, but I’m sure you can work it out.
