REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

How does that sing-along song go? "Magicka 2, Magicka 2, for the Playstation 4, and the PC, too..."

Double Fine's Hack 'n' Slash Wants You to Hack the Game, Literally

Posted on Wednesday, May 7 @ 07:47:47 Eastern by


Double Fine's new title Hack 'n' Slash is now available on Steam Early Access, in part to have players help guide the puzzles, mechanics, Steam Workshop integration (wahoo!), and the bugs (or to make them!). As the game description proclaims, "the only way to win is not to play... by the rules!"

As a spritely elf, you must discover the truth behind why the town wizard has confined the villages to their homes and the armory is crafting powerful weapons. To break the house arrest, you must wield a magical sword that can break the laws, literally, as it can hack the variables of objects.

As you use artifacts to tune global weapons and equipment that can uncover "the game's internal debug visualization," like Neo seeing the code behind The Matrix, you'll master the ability to hack. You might even find a solution to a puzzle that the developers haven't found, so in a way, yes, they want you to break the game. Pretty please.

Hack 'n' Slash is available for $19.99, and the bundle with the soundtrack is $24.99.
