Convergence: A League of Legends Story is a new 2D action platformer game that features dynamic combat and unique exploration opportunities. Developed by Double Stallion Games, the game is set in the sprawling city of Zaun, and players take on the role of Ekko, a young inventor with a device that allows him to rewind time. The game offers an incredible opportunity to explore Zaun and Piltover Champions from the original League of Legends MOBA.
Adapting Ekko’s Time Rewind Abilities and Boy Genius Aspects
Development for Convergence: A League of Legends Story began with a key drawing of Ekko grinding on a rail. The game focuses on not only Ekko’s time rewind abilities and boy genius aspects, but also on his punk-inspired fashion sense. His design includes a graffiti aesthetic and a neon-soaked post-punk skater vibe. The game relies heavily on Ekko’s ability to rewind time as it is the core mechanic that makes it unique. The game’s mechanics adapted Ekko’s entire kit of abilities from the League of Legends MOBA, giving players the chance to experience the game’s core mechanics.
Introducing Warwick, Camille, and Jinx
In addition to Ekko, the game also features Warwick, Camille, and Jinx. Warwick is a biomechanical wolf with a complex animation process, and the game’s animators referenced Jaws of the Beast and Primal Howl to adapt his MOBA abilities. Camille, who represents Piltover in the game, becomes an unlikely ally of Ekko, but their interactions initially start on the wrong foot. Camille’s hookshots are used in League to move laterally, but they are adapted for the action-platformer to allow her to have incredible aerial abilities. Jinx’s role in the game is unique as she serves primarily as a distraction for Ekko rather than a direct ally, providing a challenge for players to overcome.
Distinctive Boss Designs
Convergence: A League of Legends Story offers bosses with distinctive designs and specific attack styles, with Jinx featuring in the game’s ranged attacks. The game successfully adapts all of Jinx’s weapons from the League of Legends MOBA, including Zapper, Chompers, Fishbones, Pow-pow, and the Super Mega Death Rocket, with a few extra surprises for fans. The character designs of the bosses are also unique, featuring cell-shading and sharp lines.
