UPDATE #56: NEW YEAR'S PATCH 1.0.6

Happy New Year 2017

Today we're releasing a patch with changes to the game's ending, high resolution improvements and other improvements.

We hope you like it!

ENDING
Now, once SLASH is present at the final encounter, it can be defeated as usual, getting you the "bad ending." We have also made some changes so that it's a bit easier to guess how to achieve the "good ending."

HIGH RESOLUTION FIXES

We have also fixed some issues we found in high resolutions. The most important is automatic font scaling. When playing at higher resolutions (1080 and up), the fonts are scaled almost linearly. It will be specially noticeable when playing on television sets.

The other resolution related fix affects cutscenes, which were not properly letterboxed.

BUGFIXES
And then there are a series of fixes:
  • Fixed respawning when falling off the level for a second time.
  • Fixed issue with dialogues which might lock the game at very low resolutions.
  • Fixed overlaps with cinematic sequence black bars in non-16/9 resolutions.

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!

“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!

Welcome!
