Deathtrap is going Early Access on October 22

Good news!

First I would like to say a big thank you to everybody who supported us and made it possible that we can do what we love and release titles like The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing series (yes the final episode is also on the way :) ) and Deathtrap which will gain its Early Access status soon.

Also there was a very positive feedback about the Tower Defense game segments we used in Van Helsing I and II, and considering the fact that we are huge fans too, it simply made sense to make our own TD game. :)

This will be our first attempt to implement user generated content as a feature, and this is one of the main reasons why we will need all the help that the community can provide so we can make it as good and polished as we've imagined it.

If you have any questions, first check " what the developers have to say tab on the store page", or feel free to visit the general discussions thread.

Thanks again,
Valkyrie

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a third person hack and slash game very similar to the Diablo / Torchlight series. If you’ve played any of those, you should be able to drop right into Van Helsing with a good idea of how to play. The game seems pretty demanding hardware wise, and it heats up my computer, which is unusual for a top down isometric game.

You play the title character Van Helsing, a monster hunter on a mission to the country of Borgovia to answer a distress letter. It seems some unspecified evil is causing trouble for the people there. In the game’s world, monsters seem pretty commonplace, and you are actually accompanied on your quest by a snarky ghost named Lady Katarina. Gameplay-wise Lady Katarina is the equivalent of the “pet” in Torchlight, or a “merc” in Diablo 2, except that she talks to you all the time as part of the story. She has her own gear/stats/skills and can go back to town to sell loot for you, just like the pet in Torchlight. In combat she can hold her own for a while, but dies pretty quickly later on in the game.

The game is broken up into 2 city hubs like Diablo 2 Acts, each with its own main town, NPC shops, and quests. The game is filled with little hidden quests that you may not find in 1 playthrough, even though the maps are not randomly generated. I’ve finished 2 characters and the maps were exactly the same both times. There is an option in the main menu to have enemies respawn each time you leave and re-enter a game (like Diablo 2), and you can turn this on or off whenever you want. Like Diablo 2, you can’t see what level the enemies are, but if you’re having a hard time, you should probably go back and level up a little more. This isn’t possible if the enemies don’t respawn. In my experience if you don’t grind at least a few levels, you’ll end the game around level 27 (max level is 30).

The game has an extensive loot system similar to Diablo/Torchlight with normal/rare/set/epic item types as well as “+magic find%” attributes that can be found on gear to boost your chances of getting rarer items. There is also a way to upgrade particular items with “essence” which is kind of like gems in Diablo, or ember in Torchlight. I haven’t used the system much since every time I find a better weapon I just sell the old one, and don’t bother breaking it down for all the essences that I’ve put into it.

The game’s stat system should be familiar to people who play dungeon crawler games. Body (hp / melee damage), Dexterity (dodge chance / range damage), Willpower (magic damage/ mana), and Luck (critical damage / magic find) are your four stats and you get 5 per level up to distribute as you please. The skill system is more complicated because you don’t just choose skills (which can cost more than 1 skill point), you can also choose the “power ups” that can be used with the skills. These power ups are activated before you cast the skill, and use a “rage” meter which is separate from your mana bar. You build rage by killing monsters while mana just regenerates by itself. So an example would be activating a damage boost power up right before casting a lightning bolt spell. The power up drains some of your rage bar and the spell drains some of your mana bar with the result being a lightning bolt with increased damage. You can toggle an auto-activate to your power ups if you don’t want to deal with pressing the button every time. You’ll probably run out of rage really quickly though.

Another thing to note about the skill system is that your skills are broken up into several categories, though they all take skill points to level up. There are your main Skills, Auras, and Tricks. Auras are passive boosts that you have on permanently, though you can only have 2 auras active at any time. An example would be the Rampage aura which boosts your critical hit damage. Tricks are just another set of skills and personally I don’t see why they were separated from the other skills, except that they don’t use mana. An example would be Arcane Healing, which is an area affecting heal spell. Tricks have a cool down to prevent you from constantly spamming them.

Pros:
+Decent story set in a medieval fantasy world.
+Gameplay is mostly intuitive though some things really could benefit from further explanation. For example there is no explanation of the skill system. I went about 5 – 6 levels before I put points into any skills because I was afraid I might be wasting points on weak skills. Turns out you can re-spec them later, so go wild.
+Pretty simple multi player co-op system. I’m able to join my brother’s game pretty quickly and easily with an average ping of 80 ms. One thing I noticed is that the game’s multiplayer server browser doesn’t tell you if a person’s game has a password until you’ve tried connecting to it. That’s kind of dumb. A bunch of people constantly try connecting to my brother and my games and disconnecting because they don’t know the password.

Cons:
-There is very little information online for beginners. In most games of this type, you can find a wiki or strategy website where people share their character builds. I found one site like this, but a lot of the info is outdated. In RPG games I hate feeling like I missed out on something cool.

If you got this game from the Humble Jumbo 2 bundle, you should have the “Complete Pack” which includes the Thaumaturge and Arcane Mechanic DLCs. These DLCs are 2 new character classes along with a few class specific quests. That means you can see a few areas in the game that you can’t get into unless you’re one of these 2 new classes. The Thaumaturge is a pure spell caster and is probably the most enjoyable class, but easily killed. The Arcane Mechanic is a ranged attacker who shoots slow moving grenades and can summon support units. The base class Hunter is a little bit of everything, but really best as a melee tank with some back up spells.

I’ve heard people say that the game is pretty short, but personally I’m happy with a 12 hour game, especially one in the $1 tier of a humble bundle. I'm actually glad it doesn't have an end game grind like Diablo, where you just play over and over looking for better gear after you've finished the main storyline. Van Helsing also has a hardcore mode for people who want that extra element of risk (death is permanent). I never have and probably never will create a hardcore character since I die all the time in games like this. Overall I give the game a thumbs up if you enjoy hack and slash dungeon crawlers. You’ll find the graphics comparable with Path of Exile, and the loot finding should keep you occupied for a while.

This is pretty good. I am long since tired of Diablo clones, but I liked this one. It is worth a playthrough, somewhere on the order of 10 hours of play. It does not try to stretch that to 40 with fake longevity or 400 by asking you to keep re-running the same maps. It's not flawless, and I wouldn't recommend it without a sale (I got it in a Humble Bundle), but it does its job of being entertaining and engrossing.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a Hack 'N' Slay RPG.

You are Van Helsing, a monster hunter.
On your site is a hot evil ghost called Katarina.
You traveled into a region called Borgova.
Something evil is happening there and you have to find out what it is.
Your way leads you through cities, forests, caves and many more things just to find the person who is responsible for everything.

The gameplay is nice. Its like other Hack 'N' Slays like Diablo or Torchlight but it has a dark steampunk touch.
I really like the whole design of the game, beats Diablo and Torchlight in my opinion.
There is an incredible amount of weapons and accessoires.
The game has a typical level up system which gives you skillpoints everytime you level up.
Some items are also only usable when having a certain level.
Furthermore there are bonuses for finishing certain quests like killing 100 werewolves or whatever.
You can choose some bonuses from time to time.
Nearly everything is also supported by Katarina.
The enemy varity is pretty much actually.
There are several groups of enemies and those have always different levels.
Masters are the most dangerous. There are also veterans and others.
Also there are some bosses ingame.
People in the world might give you quests from time to time, nothing special but gives you a lot of loot.
Loot is the best about this game anyway. Its addicting collecting loot.
The difficult is higher than usual I think, at least I died several times even with using healing mage and a lot of potions.
I played on Normal. I personally skilled myself on far fight. Isnt easy though because the monster approach you very fast.

The Graphics are good for a game of that sort, nothing special though.
But I really liked the whole design especially of the forest.
It will also run on older PCs.

I also have to say that the music of the game is really nice.
I read that there is a soundtrack avaiable, but only for the second game.
Should include the music from the first game too, I read.

The game also has some sort of Multiplayer, didnt looked into it until now though.
It has Coop which is nice, I will probably try it sometime.

I have to say that I didnt awaited a lot of this game but I really started to love it.
Its addicting and has a interesting story and design.
Definitely a good game for Hack 'N' Slay fans.
I will probably buy the second game earlier or later.
I will give the game 8/10 points.

If you really enjoyed Diablo or those type of games, it's worth checking this game out. The developers obviously cared about their finished product.

If you're on the fence or you do not enjoy those games, do not try this. The first half of the game is pretty enjoyable, but after a while you either get so specialized and good with your skills that you are ripping stuff apart or it just feels downright repetitive, although that may just be a hallmark of this type of game's combat system.

It's about 15 hours long, give or take a few hours depending on how quickly you move through it and how thorough you are. I played the entire game single player, so perhaps multiplayer is a completely different experience. If you plan on playing this alone though, unless you're really in love with this type of game, do not purchase it.

If you enjoy Diablo-like games, you probably already know about this one. Fun and good looking steampunk styled game, with obvious RPG and hack 'n' slash elements, which is sadly riddled with performance problems and a handful of bugs. But these are more of an annoyance than something really serious, game is still perfectly playable, in both single player and multiplayer (but be warned, if you play co-op then don't play it by yourself, because the story progression would ruin the multiplayer, there are some saving problems which were already addressed by game developers). I would sometimes prefer inclusion of LAN mode so I hope they will patch it before MP servers shut down.

I've beaten it once in co-op and I'm going to play it on the hardest hardcore setting soon, it's enjoyable and it has enough content and replayability to justify the already low price tag.

Good for hours of playtime, but not much else. The storyline is forgettable, the voice-acting is okay, and the visuals are pretty decent for this style of game. However, you will die multiple times even on normal, due to the fact that most enemies will simply swarm your character. Even after lowering the graphics settings, my computer would lag to the point where it simply wouldn't register button presses, hence my character wouldn't use a crucial potion and died. And died. After beating the campaign you have the option to complete scenarios (aka, recycled levels from the game) to level up or start a new game with the same character. I tried the latter and made it a short way into the story before giving up, as the difficulty is much greater on the new game plus.

The overall interaction between two main characters seems interesting however,

1. bad optimization: game interfering input lags and freezing even at the lowest setting (I have 1 year old iMac)
Additionally, the characters have unconsistant frame rates, bigger mobs seem to have 10 to 15-fps attacking animation while having little bit higher fps for walking animation...etc. (very noticeable)
2. bad options menus: windows mode isn't properly supported. It still opens in fullscreen mode and alt-tab doesn't work.
3. unfriendly to new players: crucial game mechanics such as "switching skill sets" (press tab) aren't anywhere to be found, in other words, tooltips don't explain enough.
4. combat mechanic is... odd. You can't lose aggro from mobs therefore when you start kiting or running away, you'll find yourself aggro-ing too many mobs, which will cause your game to freeze.

I would not recommend this game. Characters seem to have interesting background but there are too many flaws production wise.

Standard fare for a hack and slash, in terms of gameplay. Dialog was barely tolerable, though.
