We first featured Furi back in October last year in the Punk and Lizard MagazineFuri is a game about the tension of one-on-one fights against deadly adversaries. It’s a hack-and-slash with a unique mix of fast-paced sword fighting and dual-stick shooting. Featuring character design by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki and a killer soundtrack from well-known electro bands Carpenter Brut, Danger and more, Furi’s heart-pumping boss battles will challenge gamers’ will with skill-based hand-to-hand and gun-battle combat.

Players and fans alike can attend a one-of-a-kind live concert in Paris, France, this summer, with four of the musicians playing music from the game and their latest hits. The concert will take place on July 8th at La Machine du Moulin Rouge in Paris, France. For tickets and more information, head over to furigame.com/event.

Here’s some history about the game:

The story of Furi starts ten years ago, when Emeric was asked what he would do if he could make his dream game. He came up with a game that would be one long boss fight. A boss fight against an opponent similar to you, not a gigantic creature or a demon. A boss fight that felt like a duel— a tense, exhausting, and utterly rewarding duel. Furi is the manifestation of this idea that stuck with Emeric, as he grew as a designer and set up The Game Bakers. Furi is a game where you fight for a reason. It’s a game that teases you before the fight, while you walk toward your fate, the same way you would be pumped up and stressed before a boxing match. The combat gameplay is designed with Japanese games in mind — ultra fast-paced and responsive. Your character moves as soon as you send an input. Skills and reflexes are required to dodge and parry the enemies’ attacks.
