New Hammerwatch game!

(TLDR at the end) Good-day all Hammerwatch fans, in this little news update I will tell you guys about our new game in the series and something about Hammerwatch 1. People expecting Hammerwatch 2 news will have to wait a little while, perhaps end of next week or the week after, where I will give a similar post but focus on that game alone!





Heroes of Hammerwatch
http://www.heroesofhammerwatch.com

Today we are announcing a new chapter in the Book of Hammerwatch, Heroes of Hammerwatch! A roguelike hack and slash RPG/adventure game, set in the same world as Hammerwatch and its expansion, The Sun Temple.

Take control of any of the 7 heroes, that you all know and love from the previous game and venture out from the Town of Outlook above Aridara and climb the Tower of Exhaustion through various different environments.
And while Hammerwatch is built on all static designed levels and a clear path, Heroes has generated random levels with a mix of traps, puzzles, items and such.

Heroes of Hammerwatch is not only random and generated, it's also persistent, something people have been asking about every now and then in the forums. So while levels and such are random, your hero will be saved with all of his/hers progress when it comes to skills and such.
The town you constantly upgrade to unlock more features will also be saved, but for all your heroes, so you can create new Heroes and they can continue to build up the town.


Features:

  • Random generated levels - each time you enter a level a new layout with different features will be generated.
  • Persistent Heroes - your progress is saved and each time you restart the game or die you can choose to continue with your Hero or create a new one. This time you can customize your heroes better too, with colors on different parts of the body and such, make it more unique to your own likings.
  • Upgradable town - the town is the starting point for your Heroes which you will return to between sessions. Construct buildings to allow Heroes to be upgraded further, unlock new Heroes and a lot more things. The town remains upgraded even if you choose to create a new Hero.
  • Items - Heroes of Hammerwatch features over 100 different items with various rarity, some with extreme abilities. Items can be bought in town, found in chests or secrets, and can also be dropped as reward from some enemies.
  • Enemies - Fight hordes of enemies all with different stats and functions, several big and smaller bosses all with unique looks and behavior.
  • Environments - Using some old themes from the first Hammerwatch, Heroes of Hammerwatch also adds new and fresh themes thrown into the mix.
  • Co-op - Bring your Hero into someone elses town and help them out, or have up to 3 of your friends join your own town.


Release date:

The game is set to be released Q1 2018. We will select a few people from the community to beta test the game too.

Old Hammerwatch

This game is pretty old by now, it has sold around 1M copies in that time and a lot of people seems to enjoy it still!
We are still hoping the game will be released on consoles soon, I know they are working on it and we just recently tried a new build of the PS4 version!

About a year ago, we also made a pretty big patch for this game, that was not released, it's one of the bigger patches for the game, with tons of balance changes to classes and also a totally new class. I hope we can release this patch at some point later too!

Some of the characters have gotten an overhaul too, this also shows the new class, that also will be featured in Heroes!

Serious Sam's Bogus Detour is out!



http://store.steampowered.com/app/272620/Serious_Sams_Bogus_Detour/

Croteam has partnered with independent developer Crackshell (Hammerwatch) to unleash Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour, a retro-styled take on the legendary first-person shooter series!

https://youtu.be/59HyLq2jkhI

Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour launches with up to 20% off the standard price for a limited time as fans that own any Serious Sam game or Crackshell’s Hammerwatch will receive 10% off in additional to the standard 10% off launch discount. The debut of Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour hits alongside a massive Serious Sam franchise sale on Steam with up to 90% off all other games in the beloved series http://store.steampowered.com/sale/serious-sam/].



Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is an all-new action-adventure in the legendary Serious Sam saga from Hammerwatch developer Crackshell. Battle through beautiful Mediterranean locales, dangerous biological weapons labs and even high-tech moon bases as a one-man wrecking crew or in four-player online cooperative for maximum chaos! Dominate the chaotic 12-player Survival and Versus modes or make your own mods, modes, and even total conversions with the included game editor. Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is the biggest little Serious Sam game ever made!



The Serious Sam series began as the prototypical indie game with developer Croteam existing as a group of childhood friends working on a groundbreaking tech demo in a garage. The series has gone on to sell millions of copies and recently branched into virtual reality with a collection of Serious Sam VR games. Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour is a return to these indie roots and a continuation of the Serious Sam Indie Series that includes Vlambeer’s Serious Sam: The Random Encounter and Mommy’s Best Games’ Serious Sam Double D.
