Monster Slayers - a new Nerdook game coming March 23! Beta keys available



Hello everyone

Wanted to let you all know that Monster Slayers - a new game from Vertical Drop Heroes HD developer Nerdook - will launch on Steam March 23rd. It's a roguelike card-based battler, inspired by Peter Whalen's Dream Quest.

Feel free to browse the game page or watch the new trailer for a better idea of what to expect (but, hey, it's a Nerdook game, so you should already have a good idea of what it'll be like - easy to get into, plenty of depth, dangerously addictive, and a LOT of fun).

We also have a limited number of beta keys available. You can sign-up for a chance to get one here: Monster Slayers beta key giveaway

If you like the look of Monster Slayers or are a fan of Nerdook's games, please add the game to your wishlist -- your support really helps and is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Matt, Digerati Distribution

About This Game



Vertical Drop Heroes is a procedural platformer RPG hybrid with roguelike elements, where your hero adventures through randomly generated stages.

FEATURES

- Randomly generated stages, enemies and bosses, resulting in a very replayable game
- Artwork, coding and animation done by one person (me) in that unique Nerdook style
- Split screen, local co-op, as well as local network coop!
- Destructible terrain and multiple uses for each skill gives you plenty of options to approach the different situations generated
- Tons of skills, abilities, traits and powers that you can unlock in the game, creating a different hero each time
- Unique combat system where proper planning is more important than quick reflexes
- Persistent upgrades allow you to carry forward progress between games, with a choice between increasingly expensive persistent upgrades or generally cheaper temporary upgrades
- Every enemy and boss has been designed to provide challenge and variety
