Earthblade is the next 2D action game from the Celeste team
Maddy Thorson wanted to 'hit that tiny sweet spot between the unknown and the comfort zone' for this new project
After TowerFall and Celeste, you better believe I'll keep tabs on Earthblade, the next 2D game from Extremely OK Games. The team shared a "vibe reveal" today alongside a preview of Lena Raine's soundtrack, the logo and a teaser poster by Pedro Medeiros, and a studio check-in from Maddy Thorson. Put another way, we're still in for a bit of a wait here, but they've landed on a direction.
