About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

In En Garde!, a swashbuckling action game, players battle graceless guards and nefarious noblemen in fast-paced fights full of spectacle. Use the environment, your wit and your blade to teach them all a lesson!

En Garde! is an action-adventure game that offers players the chance to step into the boots of Adalia de Volador, a legendary swashbuckling hero, in a fantasized vision of the 17th century. Players can embark on daring escapades filled with charm and humor, challenge the treachery of the cruel Count-Duke and oppose tyranny with panache! 

Featuring beautifully painted locations, theatrical characters, and an astounding amount of banter and quips, En Garde! is among the first original game IPs to re-create the classic swashbuckling comedy and adventure of a bygone era.

The combat in the game is challenging and ever-changing, pushing players to use trickery, acrobatics, and many objects in the environment to defeat scores of scoundrels, guards, and nefarious nobles. The game offers a series of exciting story episodes or the chance to experiment with zany modifiers in Arena mode, battling waves of diverse enemies.

Players can fill their Panache Meter and unlock special skills by fighting with style, exchanging attacks, parries and ripostes with their opponents. The game also encourages players to adapt and improvise, learn their enemies' weaknesses, and use the environment to their advantage by surprising, stunning or evading enemies.

En Garde!'s team has reformed and expanded to remake the game from the ground up. With its hilarious, action-packed spectacles, En Garde! offers players a one-of-a-kind swashbuckling adventure.

En Garde! is coming to PC via Steam in August 2023.
