Here's the launch trailer for Double Fine's fantasy hacking adventure, Hack 'n' Slash. Does it remind you of anything? 'Cause it really should, at least if you're old enough. Or you like retro commercials. Anyway, the game launches on Steam Early Access in "just a matter of weeks"—check out our impressions here.
These days most people know the basics of the top-down action adventure game. You know, "the Zelda-like." Character with a sword, walking through dungeons, solving puzzles and fighting monsters, opening chests. Time to introduce a major twist, no?
Double Fine is releasing a puzzle/action game called Hack 'n' Slash next year, the studio announced today. It was originally announced as a prototype during one of Double Fine's big game jam sessions last November, and it'll be out as a full game in the first half of 2014.
