Hack ‘n Slash from Double Fine hits 1.0, discounted until September 16
Yep, that’s a release trailer for Amnesia Fortnight entry Hack ‘n Slash from Double Fine. It looks good, being a game where a character might suggest “You just write some Lua code.” (that part is really about modding, but still). Hey, pal, why don’t you just write some Lua code. Whatever the hell that means. Also, you’re not the boss of me. Hack ‘n Slash is unique insofar as you apparently
write (Lua?) code in order to change the rules of the game use menus in the game to change variables that change how various objects and creatures in the game behave. The gameplay in the trailer (towards the end) has a sort of Legend of Zelda vibe to it, which seems promising. Also, there’s a lot of code in there that I have no idea how to parse. It’s been in Early Access for a bit (this version adds the final act, mod support and Steam Workshop integration) but it’s now been released on Steam for $19.99 (currently discounted to $13.39 until September 16, 2014). I have spent your Earth moneys on it, so I will let you know what I think as soon as I play it. Like many of you, I suspect, I have more games than a rational person would ever play but this one stands out enough that I’m looking forward to give it a go even if it, apparently, thinks it can tell me what to do.
