Our Hero! Hyper Sword, a light-hearted action RPG will have Linux support

Posted by , | Views: 4,109

Our Hero! Hyper Sword is a light-hearted action RPG with colourful characters that's currently on Kickstarter, they just added a Linux demo too.

I found out about this today after coming across it on Steam in the coming soon section where it showed Linux support, but the Kickstarter didn't have a Linux demo. I reached out to the developer, did a little testing for them, had a chat and in the end they put out a Linux demo. They thanked me personally too—cool eh? Nice to make even a small difference.

The developer is looking to get €5K in funding, with nearly €200 pledged so far. Not a huge goal, so it should be quite easy for them to hit it considering there's still 28 days left to go.

About the game:

Our Hero! Hyper Sword is an epic action-adventure game with some RPG mechanics starred by fancy and colorful characters, inspired by such titles as Castle CrashersJak and DaxterZelda.

The game involves seamlessly alternating Hack'n'Slash and platforming sections, free-to-explore environments dotted with secrets to collect and enemies to fight in frantic real-time battles, each guarded by armored and evasive boss which require timing and tactics to hit in an opening.

Find it on Kickstarter now.

I wanted to try this demo but it seems I can't move the main character after the dialogue.

It only works with a gamepad, or It's me?

Worked fine for me, arrow keys not WASD.

Hmm I don't understand... I tried again, my character is in front of a pig and there I can't do anything.
I changed my keyboard layout to Qwerty and tested it with a gamepad too, and it's still the same.
Weird.
