Bound by Flame lets the players customize their character. During the creation of their hero, players will be able choose their gender and choose from three pre-made models.
Through its different chapters, Bound by Flame will offer many quests around a primary adventure. Depending on the choices made by the player and the influence of the demon, some chapters will offer different scenarios and a different experience.
Bound by Flame also includes a crafting system, allowing them to create and improve equipment, including their armor and weapons. Several companions will join the player during his quest, and will, depending on the player’s actions, develop friendship, romance or rivalry. AUsing the crafting, the player can customize weapons and armour with more depth than most other games.
When fighting enemies, characters can use three different fighting styles. One relies on slow, heavy, damaging strikes with weapons like axes and hammers, and a push/kick ability to interrupt enemies or break their defences. Another uses small weapons like daggers for quick strikes and gives a dodge ability to evade enemy attacks. The third style utilizes fire attacks for major damage and can be combined with the other two fighting styles to do things like enhancing weapons with fire damage. Each of the three styles has its own skill tree with both passive and active abilities.
During combat, the player can also use other attacks aside from striking with a weapon, like traps and abilities earned from the skill trees.
