While Chambara is a competitive action game, we wanted to avert it from the toxic tropes of hypermasculinity and redemptive violence that come out of uncritical design thinking. We value competitive games because of the dialogue between players and the relationship to sportsmanship. We wish to draw out the best aspects of this kind of game with Chambara.
Chambara has been exhibited at events like E3 2015, Indiecade, BitBash, the Independent Games Festival, and Orbyt Play. Chambara is also the winner of the 2015 BAFTA “Ones to Watch Award” and an IGF Award Nominee for Best Student Game. Chambara promises to thrill and connect players with its striking visual style and deep, tactical play.

Chambara is a smart, stylish, and truly entertaining game to play locally with friends and family. There's a timeless class to games of this ilk which offer experiences that you simply cannot get elsewhere. As long as you can provide a steady stream of willing players to engage with, Chambara returns the favour with a limited but excellent selection of arenas to engage with them in.
