Hammerwatch hack and slash action adventure Now Out For Linux

By - | Views: 11,433
A hack and slash action adventure, set in a fantasy pixel art environment. Play solo or co-op in this adventure from bottom to top of Castle Hammerwatch. Kill hordes of enemies with varied looks and features through four unique environments with traps, hidden secrets and puzzles.

I have been waiting for this one, purchased it and played it last night and again this morning it's so good.

Key Features
  • 4 different classes, with unique features and skills
  • Character development through unlocks and upgrades
  • Hard, medium and easy of course
  • Customize difficulty with several different modifiers
  • Controller support, supports various different gamepads
  • Multiplayer COOP, for up to four players, online, LAN and local
  • Linux, Mac and Windows support
  • Mod and editing support, make your own levels and change other things to your liking

I thought it was quite easy until I discovered bombs inside some of the barrels, then later getting cornered by bats with grubs shooting at me, it was lulling me into a false sense of security! Thankfully there are checkpoints so you don't have to start all over again.

Well worth the money folks (£6.29, it's 10% off until the 19th), be warned though it does use Mono, not MonoGame either just standard Mono so you may need to install it yourself.

Quoting: Orkultus"Other Products" section very bottom of "My account" page. They dont supply a downloadable client through humble. They give you a steam key generator.

According to what I pre-ordered they should:

"Thanks for purchasing Hammerwatch!

Thanks for pre-ordering! When available, you'll be able to get your direct downloads (cross-platform and DRM-free) and Steam key for Hammerwatch right here on your download page!"

Looks very fun. Like a combination of Pocky Rocky and Zelda.
Will probably end up buying this.

Quoting: ZikZakI just checked again and only teh soundtrack appears in my HumbleBunde account.
If I remember well I pre-ordered it from the dev' website when I read it would be DRM free.
So far I only have the Steam key but I do not have an account on this site has I try to avoid DRM as best as I can.
At the bottom of the page of your HB account, you don't have "Other products" (below "Bundles") with a link to a separate page for this game?
