Tidal Blades: Heroes of the Reef

Gaming worlds rarely come more beautiful than Tidal Blades. Beneath its dazzling looks, there’s a deep ocean of characters and story to dive into


The world of Tidal Blades began with its artists, and it shows. Set in the island realm of Naviri, it’s a stunning vision of turquoise waters, golden sands and half-animal inhabitants that populate its shores alongside humans. From the depths of the ocean came monsters unleashed by a mysterious storm 15 years ago, repelled by a select group of protectors known as the Tidal Blades. Though the monsters – and some of the heroes that battled them – were ultimately sealed inside a pocket of time and space called the Fold, some of the creatures have now begun to emerge and cause terror once again. As the annual tournament held in remembrance of the Tidal Blades’ sacrifice returns, aspiring heroes – that’s us players – gather in the hope of becoming the next generation of warriors.

This rich background was the invention of Lina Cossette and David Forest, who together under the label of Mr. Cuddington have lent their artistic talents to richly-illustrated games such as Charterstone, Santorini, Unfair and The Grimm Forest. The universe of Tidal Blades marks the pair’s first venture into creating a completely original setting themselves, instead of breathing life into the themes and worlds requested by game publishers.
