Release date: Aug 2013
A hack and slash action adventure, set in a fantasy pixel art environment. Solo or cooperate in this adventure from bottom to top of Castle Hammerwatch. Kill hordes of enemies with varied looks and features through four unique enviroments with traps, hidden secrets and puzzles.

The game is inspired by the old Gauntlet-series, but adds a lot with online support, character development, complex levels, bosses, and much more. Like gauntlet, the focus is fast paced action, but with elements that forces you to think just a bit more!

List of features:
  • 12 levels, divided between 4 acts
  • 4 different classes, with unique features and skills
  • Character development through unlocks and upgrades
  • Several different monsters all with different skills and abilities
  • 4 large bosses, which requires more strategy than just hacking
  • Survival mode, on small arena levels with waves of enemies just charging
  • Hardcore mode, also, hard, medium and easy of course
  • Controller support, supports various different gamepads
  • Multiplayer COOP, for up to four players, online, LAN and local
  • PC, MAC and Linux support
  • Mod and editing support, make your own levels and change other things to your liking

BETA 104!
Beta/Demo (1.04):

@Hipshot Hey I love your HammerWatch, it's got a great color tone for the schematic, I want to pitch an idea for a new game. Using your engine for HammerWatch you should try to make a game similiar to this, but make it more open world adventurish, with home building and crafted gear progressive, somewhat like minecraft and albion online. With this 2d top down feel, with the old school pixelated feel like your current game has, people will eat it up!
P.S. Avoid the mistake alot of games close to this idea make, put no player limit and allow players to host servers! You'll get rich lol
