Things are heating up
Back in December 2022, Untold Tales in partnership with Kautki Cave announced Flame Keeper for Switch, and it’s set to arrive sometime in 2023. Today brings us a new, extended gameplay trailer for the game, which you can check out above.
Flame Keeper is a dynamic action rogue-lite where your life is your currency. As a special little piece of burning coal named Ignis, you need to restore the fire to the Eternal Flame. But in doing so, you drain your own life. Find the perfect balance between progress and staying alive as you battle through a world of darkness and monsters. Learn from your mistakes as you die trying and adapt your tactics, skills and abilities to progress.
Take on hordes of enemies using a multitude of moves and attacks including punch combos, fiery dashes, wide area-of-effect stomps, and powerful finishers that deal decisive damage. Each biome in Flame Keeper is inhabited by unique foes and obstacles of increasing difficulty that you’ll need to learn to beat.
In order to progress you’ll also need to upgrade little coal via skills and passive abilities. Mix and match skills in the same run to create tons of different builds.
In order to restore the Eternal Flame, you must scour each environment for what remains of its energy and transfer it back into each stage’s Fire Camp. Find the right balance of keeping yourself alive and fighting while still progressing
At the start of each level lies Vulpis Village. Here you can rest, enhance abilities, rebuild and upgrade structures thanks to resources you collect.
