Montpellier, France, July 17 – Indie French studio Fireplace Games is excited to announce En Garde! will be launching on PC via Steam on August 16th. Praised by players and media, En Garde! was one of Next Fests’ most prominent titles, having been played by more than 50,000 players in just two weeks.

En Garde! is an action-adventure game that invites players to step into the shoes of Adalia de Volador, a renowned swashbuckling hero, in a whimsical rendition of 17th century Spain. Engage in daring escapades filled with charm and wit, and challenge the cruel Count-Duke with unmatched style!

By fighting with flair, exchanging attacks, parrying, and riposting against opponents, players can fill their Panache Meter and unlock special skills. En Garde! encourages adaptability and improvisation, urging players to uncover enemy weaknesses and utilise the environment to their advantage, be it through surprise attacks, stunning manoeuvres, or clever evasions.

En Garde!’s combat is challenging and dynamic, encouraging players to employ cunning tactics, acrobatics, and the ingenious use of environmental objects to overcome hordes of scoundrels, guards, and villainous nobles. Players can experience thrilling story episodes or embrace their creativity in Arena Mode, where they’ll face waves of diverse enemies with unique modifiers.

Featuring beautifully hand-painted environments, theatrical characters, and an abundance of banter and wit, En Garde! successfully captures the essence of classic swashbuckling comedy and adventure from a bygone era.

Originally conceived as an award-winning student project, En Garde! is supported by Kowloon Nights, the independent gaming fund behind Sifu, Tchia, Scorn, and Roller Drome. The team behind En Garde! has since expanded, allowing the studio to enhance the game’s depth and scope.

With its blend of humour, thrilling action, and breathtaking spectacles, En Garde! promises players an unparalleled swashbuckling adventure that is truly one-of-a-kind.
