About This Game

Medieval Mercs is a new action game using real time 3d lighting in 2d perspective to achieve cool visuals in a side scrolling game! Defend the realm with your band of mercenaries and become legends of the land. Craft weapons and armor to boost their powers. Level your mercenaries up to level 20 and spend their attribute points wisely to create truly unique mercenaries each game. You will encounter dozens of monster types, collect crafting materials, and equipment on your adventures.



Develop a unique band of mercenaries through attribute modifications and equipment combinations! Increase your reputation to unlock new classes by successfully defending villages, towns, and cities. Turn your band of mercenaries into a squad told of in legends! Classes including:



Elementalist:

Use the elemental plane of fire and Ice to tear a path through the opposition. Rain a hailstorm from above or use area of effect explosions to decimate the hordes.



Dwarven Defender:

A stalwart mercenary who can bulldoze through even the most formidable defense! Call upon the aid of his ancestors to bolster his strength or unleash mighty blows to crush all his enemies.



Ranger:

The ranger dispatch's his foes from afar. Raining down showers of explosive arrows or sending a single arrow to pierce through all who stand before him.

I have no problems with DH, gamers should determine if their games sell. I have an issue when people say Crap gets released on steam... Valve does what they have to do. If 10k people are saying... WE WANT THIS GAME, Valve should release the game.

If you want crap gone, who should determine what is or isn't crap. Not all gamers have the same taste, so what one person things is crap, another may think is a treasure.

Not For Me

I gave it a try but this gamestyle isn't something i enjoy playing.
There is a lot of attention to detail and things you can do regarding armor and weapon upgrades and crafting new stuff.
The good has a pretty nice look and feel to it as well.

I won't be playing this simply because i did not enjoy it but i'm sure this can be rated as a good game.

As far as i can tell the only thing that really works in this is the ability to hit play, start a match, die, and return to the menu within a few seconds, buggy as frick, crashed twice. Got it for the card farm, not really worth it

Game is way too hard to figure out, even ith help, enemies come at you all at once, sometimes the character is stuck in the level without the enemies doing anything, it's just a complete mess

Oh what can I say, well this is one of the most thought provoking pieces of modern art which I have seen in a long time. I will try my best not to spoil the plot or any major parts of the story. First of all, the time and detail they put into developing the characters, be it their physical nature or level of attachment the player acquires with them, is unfathomable. Next, which is nearly my favorite part of this magnificent specimen of literature, is the glorious and beautiful landscapes which you traverse. Seeing the sun rise above the bog and pierce the mist like a lance from the heavens really brings forth emotions which can hardly be described in writing. I invite you to take part in the masterpiece which is Medieval Mercs, a journey which tests the morals and metal of the player, leaving an experience that will linger in the mind for years to come.

My favorite part of the game is not being able to hit the flying enemies. Covered in The Indie Critics newest video on Digital Homicide.

Im sorry, but no... this has to be one of the worst games I ever played, its not even on "Early access" and its unplayable. As a Unity user I can see this game was made 100% from untouched Unity Assets, seriously, they used THE SAME MONSTER ON THREE OF THEIR GAMES. (The big ogre monster which is featured on the Infamous "Slaughtering Grounds" and on "Deadly Profits")

The "devs" (If you can call them like that) are the most immature and childish people on Steam, banning people on the forums and insulting critics of their game. (And lets not even talk about the Copyright strike to Jim Sterling for making what they thought was an "unfair" critic about their game... yes, these people believe you can Strike someone with copyright if you dont like their review of your product.)

So im sorry, but I will be refunding the game since I dont wanna give these people my money to support more terrible games like these.

Thank god for Steam refunds and freedom of speech.

Very unpolished thing. The text is hard to read, the combat is on a level of student's project.
Could say nothing about the idea since I stopped playing the game after few attempts to grasp what it is all about.
Hope they manage to finish it an dmake it more playable s I can try it again. Till then, not recommended!

Has potential but unplayable in it's current state. Needs more polishing and for it to not crash everytime i click yes to start. I have seen side scrolling jumper and hack n slash done well together in a game, unfortunatly not in this game. too confusing.

It's just another quick throw up by Digital Homicide. There's not much to expect, they still even use Unity launcher. There's no quality whatsoever in this. I spent more time waiting for stuff to load than actually playing and I can't honestly understand how can this take up 2GB, it's just waste of space.

First of all, that GUI has got to be the worst GUI I've ever seen in a game. There's TOO MUCH information!

The game is simple; you just have to defend the gate of your city (that is, do not die).

The enemies don't cause enough damage to make it a challenge, as you have healing spells.

As of now there's a major bug where if you pause, you can continue moving AND killing all monsters without getting hit, but when you unpause, no enemies appear anymore.

My steam friend gave me this game, and he a good friend, for that i known he wont mind me telling that this game sucks!!

Or better, this isn't even a game, it doesn't have any minimum requirements to be called a game. This looks like a test for something in the future, but it would need a lot of work. This shouldn't be on the market, on steam or anywhere else.

Stay away from this ga.....Thing!!

Saying that this is likely Digital Homicide's best game is like saying you're the nicest guy in prison. This game crashed when I had the audacity to try and launch a game. Complete garbage.
