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

By - | Views: 16,881

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:

What do you think after seeing this? It's getting increasingly difficult to hold back the excitement.

Finally, a civilized fighting game! (Seriously it looks pretty fun)

Wait, is that the sequel to the acclaimed Hellish Pint?

Actually, it does look rather good. Clearly an interesting game in that nobody's mentioning the Steam Deck aspect 'cause our attention got grabbed by the game.

Kubold? The creator of Aliens, Trolls and Dragons, sadly abandoned?

Someone please tell me that we can control the sword-arm like we could in the Treyarch game, Die by the Sword? As crude as it was, and as lacklustre as the story was, that game was a piece of art.

For some reason this made me think of:

"I have something here for you. Your father's Steam Deck. This is the device of a true gamer. Not as locked-down or as proprietary as a console. An elegant device for a more civilized time."

I've seen this game referenced before: https://www.gog.com/game/hellish_quart

Do they plan a native version?
