Heart&Slash Now Available

Heart&Slash Now Available

Over the weekend aheartfullofgames unleashed a new robot brawler on the world – Heart&Slash! (what do they have against the space bar?)

Successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2014, Heart&Slash is a fast-paced 3D brawler with roguelike elements set in a colorful post-apocalyptic world. You initially play as Heart, a sentient robot fighting to escape the grip of the evil and all seeing machine QuAsSy (Quality Assurance Systems). Along the way, you meet Slash – whose attention you attempt to garner over several playthroughs — which is far from easy since every death is permanent meaning  a new randomly generated level each time. This let’s you start over with different weapons and items, new enemies to fight and new secrets to explore. Heart&Slash offers players something new and challenging because it is not about mastering one system, rather adapting to what is provided and making the most of it.



  • Fight using 75 different weapons and 60 different body parts that will change the way the game plays. Teleport, stop time, fly with a jetpack, wall-jump, discover enemy weaknesses, and more. From the trivial to the game-changing, you can try thousands of different combinations.
  • Die and try again. Permadeath means Heart&Slash is not an easy game — but dying shouldn’t matter, since robots can be cloned easily and indefinitely. Every time you start a new game, the levels you fight through and the items or weapons you collect will change.
  • Unique art style that will bring back the memories of game systems long gone.
  • Almost no downtime. Levels are short and brutal.


Heart&Slash is available on Xbox One ($27 AUD) and PlayStation 4 ($25 AUD) .

Heart&Slash is also scheduled for a Steam release later this year. If you’d like to try it out you can download a demo for Windows, MacOS, or Linux at the IndieDB website.

There are two things I love in life... playing games and my family. I work three jobs; one to pay the bills, another as a video game designer at C117 Games, and, of course, here - at Another Dungeon. I own almost every console since the Atari 7800 and am proud of my extensive collection of games. I'm more of a single or coop player but I do dabble in multiplayer on the odd occasion. Tabletop wise I prefer strategic games like Five Tribes or Small World. If you want to have a game or just chat feel free to add me, PM me or email me.
