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!

Looks awesome! I'd play this! I mean, not only does the retro graphics appeal to me XD but also the gameplay, and I've been a fan of the Gauntlet style as well. Also I often look for games that can be played multiplayer, and this just is the thing I'm looking for! Hope to see this released!! :D

Looks like a gauntlet style game but revamped graphics and hopefuly with a little more story and significance, I'd give it a go for sure.

Nice sharp textures and vivid colours, fast action - a random dungeon generator would be a welcome addition...
