Designed to blur the lines between casual and competitive gameplay, The Nevernaut team sought to create a game that cultivated connection and sparked nostalgic competition.
The team was also highly influenced by their love of Japanese culture, as evident throughout the gameplay as well as the art and music.
Each of the nine interactive gameplay maps includes elements crafted around historical landmarks from the Japanese Edo period, interpreted and designed to fit the whimsical SlashDash world. Further, the sound and music, created utilizing Japanese instruments and samples, evolves as the game unfolds, making each match sound different than the last.
At the beginning of each match, players will be able to choose their weapon of choice to best fit their favorite gameplay style, or better counter their opponent. There are four game modes in SlashDash including:
- Capture the Flag (2 vs. 2): Use your slashing and dashing skills as well as your weapon of choice to capture your opponent’s flag three times.
- Assassination (2 vs. 2): Work to assassinate your opponent’s Shogun while protecting your own.
- Deathrace (free for all): Fill up your meter faster by staying alive longer. Stun and kill your opponents to slow their meter down. First one to fill up their meter wins the match.
- Mirror Match (Free for all): In this 2-4 player game mode, control five ninjas at the same time while working to kill off all your opponents by slashing, dashing, and using your weapon. Last ninja standing wins.
