Hammerwatch
Beta/Demo of Act1!
March 6, 2013 - hipshot

This version is now out of date, please see the following announcement for the current version: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/updates/122788084/1365347805

We can now present the public beta of Hammerwatch, it has gone through a short closed beta testing, we have sorted out some of our most prominent bugs and also cleaned up some of our features.

Download link: *removed see new update*


Features:
  • Entire Act 1, with a boss, secrets, bonus level, money, vendors etc
  • Survival level, this is a prototype and not balanced and also very short
  • 3 of our 4 classes
  • Coop support for up to four players, local, Lan and online
  • Controller support

Missing:
  • The game above Act 1, it's like 75% of the game missing
  • The Warlock class
  • Saving
  • Editor
  • Much more

Issues:
  • Some people will most likely encounter bugs, please mail these or any other issue to error@hammerwatch.com and please, include your hardware specs too.
  • You can't join a server that's already up, you need to connect to the host when he's in the server lobby.
  • Sound, if you can't hear anything, you are probably missing OpenAL. There should be a message displayed when you start the game about it.
    OpenAL can be downloaded here:
    http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/default.aspx
  • Found that some controllers can't assign all buttons in the game, this can be done manually in the config.cfg file for now (360-controller seems to work fine, except for the analog triggers).
  • Some built in graphics cards have issues with not showing the minimap.

Feedback:
Please, let us know what you think and feel about the game, balance, difficult level, classes, skills etc. We read everything we see about the game!

The game is very good, but I think it would be good acresentar a little more difficulty and new types of enemies, as they are very repetitive.

The game is really easy, you should increase the complexity of the game (sorry for my English).
