Swordcery – A Rogue-like, Melee-based Action-RPG

Swordcery started out as a literal dream about a weapon that looked like giant pizza cutlery which sparked an idea. What if there was a hero who wielded the power of hundreds of really weird and quirky swords? The spark soon became a flame and, in 2019, Temple Door Games (a duo indie dev team based in Los Angeles, CA.) was founded to make that dream a reality.

Swordcery is a rogue-like, melee-based action-RPG whose treacherous, ever-evolving path will challenge players with reactionary combat, vicious enemies, and formidable boss fights.

A rain of blades has fallen to Earth in a catastrophic event known as the “World Rending.”
