UPDATE #55: PATCH 1.0.5

Quick patch!

Thanks for all people who have reported the errors in the third level. We have finally managed to find the root cause of the remaining issues, so we expect no more serious issues in that regard.

We have also introduced a quick fix for the UI, which did not render properly in very high resolutions (4K and such).

Have fun!

Hell-o to all of you!

We bring a new patch today, featuring a couple of smaller fixes and a request from our players.


But before that, a quick reminder: an extra character can be unlocked during this and the next week. It comes with its own achievement, but it still cool nonetheless!
So remember to run the game and try it out!


Regarding the patch, it brings some minor improvements, but the most relevant change is the addition of a locked framerate option. If you're PC is beefy enough, you're probably running Heart&Slash at 200+ frames per second, unnecessarily turning your system into a small scale heater.

Now, by default, Heart&Slash runs at locked 60fps. That should be good enough for most users, but those interested in higher (or lower) framerates in tandem with v-sync, you can modify the framerate by editing the video settings file and adding or modifying a line:


to set the framerate to locked 30fps.
If the line is not present, you can change any video setting, exit the game to make sure the new value is saved and then open the settings file.

Of course, we don't recommend setting the framerate to anything below 30fps, because the game will run much slower than desired and the dynamic resolution system will kick in.


In the patch we've included other improvements:
  • Updates to the Simplified Chinese translation
  • COPS blockade no longer obstructs passage through doors in the second level
  • Dynamic resolution could fail to activate because of a misconfiguration

Enjoy the game during these special days. We're preparing some more content. Once we have something to show, we'll let you all know!

Thanks for playing and keeping up to date with us!

“Heart & Slash's tight combat system, amazing upbeat soundtrack, and sheer commitment to providing gear that's fun to use sucked me in straight away.”
80% – Destructoid

“Do yourself a favor and pick up Heart & Slash. Especially if you are a retro gaming fan, the graphics, art, and difficulty curve will keep you coming back for more to clean up the Robopocalypse.”
95% – Gamer Assault Weekly

“With tight refined combat, a charming visual style and an endearing main character that reminds me of an anthropomorphic companion cube, Heart & Slash’s throwback difficulty won’t be for everyone but, if you like your games to push back a little and not hold your hand, you’ll find Heart & Slash a rewarding experience that’s well worth the effort.”
4/5 – Impulse Gamer

About This Game

Heart&Slash is a 3D brawler that is set in a world where machines are all that remains from the Human civilization.

You play as Heart, an innocent robot fighting to escape the grip of the evil and all seeing machine QuAsSy (Quality Assurance Systems).

But make no mistake Heart&Slash is a hard game. Every death is permanent and means a new randomly generated level for you to start over with a different set of weapons and items you can use, new enemies to fight and secrets to explore.

Heart&Slash is an indie game developed by a small but passionate team. We have a tiny budget but big hearts, and we are giving it all to make this game (our first) the best we can.

Features (on final release):
-3 worlds to explore and fight in. Each world includes its unique enemies an bosses.
-Dozens of different weapons and equipment pieces (more than 100 in total) to customize Heart and your play style.
-Perma-death, but a persistent progression system that gives you more options as you play the game.

We hope you enjoy Heart&Slash as much as we enjoy making it!
