About Blade Ballet
Blade Ballet is a whirling dance of local and online multiplayer robot destruction, coming to PS4 and Steam August 2016. Each bot possesses a unique personality and special abilities, which players use to claim victory as they spin from one challenging arena to the next, battling for dominance.
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).
About DreamSail Games
DreamSail Games believes that throwing players into otherworldly situations, alongside others, leads to unforgettable moments. We want our players to learn about themselves through their interactions with others, free from the constraints of reality.
Starting up in New York City also has meaning to us. We have seen the community expand over the past few years thanks to the NYU Game Center, as well as other local communities, and we want to be a catalyst to that development.
