Blacken Slash a new highly replayable game coming to Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the ongoing creative efforts of ehmprah. Working to make its way onto Steam in 2022.

ehmprah is gaining more notice as a solo indie dev with his new game Blacken Slash. Due to be the minimalist love child of turn based strategy and hack, slash & loot games.

So here we are, after creating “one of the best tower defense games” 1,2,3,4,5 with Core Defense. Now, ehmprah is trying to do the same for another two of my favorite genres. Since it takes the best out of both into a simple, fast paced, and endlessly rewarding gameplay experience. And so far it’s looking very interesting. Check out the trailer below.

Blacken Slash fuses tactical turn based combat and fast paced hack, slash and loot gameplay. Which takes only the best out of both genres to create a simple, but endlessly rewarding gameplay. Since players will to fight, loot and repeat until you die. Play on your own and perfect your gear. Doing so across dozens of runs and see which difficulty you can master. Or compete with other players in an online leaderboard where you start from scratch each week.
