Get a fresh up close and personal look at the Steam Deck with Hellish Quart

By - | Views: 13,509

Want a really close view on the Steam Deck in action? Hellish Quart developer Kubold recently had a Steam Deck devkit delivered so they took a video.

Can't say I had heard of Hellish Quart until seeing the video either. It's a physics based, realistic, 3D sword duelling game set in the 17th century and you know what? It looks like a huge amount of fun actually! Not only that, it appears to now work just fine with Steam Play Proton. The developer mentioned they will be updating the game to have controller glyphs for the moves list, which it will need to get Verified properly and it's something that should benefit all gamepad players.

The video is about 3 minutes long, and it's easily one of the most chilled-out personal looks we've seen yet. Check it out in our embed below:

That’s freakin awesome - for a game!

Skallagrim did at least one video covering Hellish Quart:
Heh, thx. Didn't watch Skal in years (and also revoked my Patreon sub - dude gets enough and really didn't need my few bucks so I felt the money better used for some smaller artist). Mebbe I should catch up sometimes.

I bought and played for a few hours. Great potential but big performance problems on my system. Xubuntu 20.4, GTX 970, i6700K.

Often feels like it's running in slow motion. Especially in scenes with a lot of background graphics.

The approach of the game is great. The fights often last only a few seconds but can also go on for minutes.

Overall, however, the game still has some bugs and little content. 13€ is a steep price for it. Nevertheless, I had several hours of fun with it. At the moment, I'm only really enjoying the survival mode. I haven't played it against human opponents yet.
