En Garde ! is my graduation project. We were a team of eight students for a period of nine months. I was the animator and technical artist for the project.
En Garde! is a swashbuckling action-adventure game set in 17th century’s Spain. Play as Adalia de Volador, a noble & impetuous swordswoman! Your palace has been seized by a mysterious mastermind and his hoard of guards – you will have to defend your family’s honor!
Fight with your rapier and acrobatic moves against numerous opponents, and use the environment to your advantage in an intuitive way (every object is interactive, from tables to chandeliers!). You can even use your sense of repartee to taunt your opponents. Combat is a spectacle and should be done with panache! En Garde! prototype features story-driven action in an open level (the Volador’s Palace) for a total play time of about 30 minutes.
