An intense sci-fi action wave defender, BladeShield tells the story of the Titan-X transport vessel and its advanced onboard A.I., E.L.L.E.N. (Engaging Linguistic Learning Electronic Network), which is set to be released for HTC Vive through Steam. Play as a lone security officer who until now has enjoyed an uneventful, predictable gig. All this changes when the A.I. goes rogue and commands the ship’s replicator to create an army of murderous robots bent on killing every human being in the galaxy. As the sole security officer on the ship, you’ve been tasked with putting a stop to the A.I. and making sure everyone onboard gets out safely. You can check out the trailer for the game below.
Developer Rank17 have described the game by saying:
“Arm yourself with two powerful BladeShields, and take on wave after wave of deadly robots to beat E.L.L.E.N. Switch between the light blade and proton shield in each hand — blocking with the shield and swinging the blades for maximum damage. Sawbots, blaster drones, and mega turrets are out to get you — so make sure to block and deflect incoming laser bolts from enemies to charge up your blade. Once you’re done, smash the floor with your energy blade to unleash a massive EMP blast!”

- Fight the way you want, dual-wield swords, sword/shield, shield/shield. Change on the fly
