Gauntlet-esque Hammerwatch supports mods and co-op


6:30 PM on 02.04.2013



The old Gauntlet games are some of the best cooperative experiences of days gone by. There was something about destroying monsters with your buddies, leveling up your character, and competing for loot that made those games special.

Hammerwatch is a hack-and-slash dungeon crawler that is currently hanging out on Steam Greenlight. It's inspired by Gauntlet, though I cannot confirm whether or not anyone needs food badly. It's definitely worth checking out as it will include modding tools to extend the game's life indefinitely, online and local co-op, a hardcore mode, and it is coming to Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Remember, if you like it, give it a vote on the Greenlight page!

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more

Need something free to pass the time? 0h h1 is sort of like binary sudoku

I have always been an unapologetic fan of Minesweeper. I have been playing it for longer than any other single game, and I will be playing it as long as I can imagine. It never changes in any fundamental way, but it always wo...more
