Hello, players!

We had some bug fixes lying around, which we had not yet gotten around to uploading. So here you have version 1.1.6:
  • Fixed rooms in the Factory that would not spawn normal enemies if a Big enemy had spawned already.
  • Revert change that made FPS camera by default controlled with movement keys. It made playing using laser guns with gamepads difficult.
  • Fixed an overlap in the tutorial with certain languages when playing in 1280x720.
  • Fixed doors in many endless rooms not closing properly when returning from next room.
  • [VoidInsanity] Slash Quest 2 chains disappeared if the player changed levels while the quest was active.

Once again, we bring a small update (actually, two in one, as we discovered a small issue that we rectified before uploading the previous version).

The most important bit is that now the first person camera used by specific equipment will, by default, be rotated with the camera controls, instead of the movement controls. That means, by default, with the mouse or the right analog stick.

Another relevant change involves fixing the explosion sound of an attack by B-DSS and the Super Elite bots, which was not configured.

We have also made some small changes to configurations and code, to improve memory management a little bit. The difference is not that noticeable, but should avoid some stuttering in low-spec PCs.

And we leave you with the changelog:

Version 1.1.5
  • Fixed bosses briefly dissapearing during their intro animations.

Version 1.1.4
  • Improved performance of animations.
  • FPS camera is by default controlled with camera keys.
  • Slight improvement to memory management, reducing ocassional stuttering.
  • Fixed explosion sound in B-DSS and Super Elite.
  • Adjusted the display of leaderboards, so the colours have better contrast and elements are easier to distinguish.

Cheers from the team!

“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!
