February 24 2014 – Madrid based videogames studio, aHeartfulofGames ( http://aheartfulofgames.com/) has released a free playable Alpha demo of Heart&Slash, a 3D brawler with roguelike elements. The game has been in development for one year and is currently live on Kickstarter. The team hope you obtain valuable feedback from the community before progressing with Beta.

Playable Alpha download: Windows Windows64 MacOSX-64 MacOSX-Universal

Heart&Slash on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1gxMLyn

Heart&Slash tells the story (through a lot of fighting) of malfunctioning robot and protagonist, Heart, who embarks on a quest to find its identity and, ultimately, love (for the game’s story is a love story). The game is a procedurally generated brawler with retro-inspired art that takes as an inspiration old N64 and Dreamcast games.

The alpha showcases combat and the beginning of the procedural generation of levels. It features 15 different weapons and 20 pieces of equipment, which is a limited sample of the over 140 different items that are planned for the full release.

Heart&Slash has been developed in the last year by Juan Raigada. Since March 2013, Juan has been working part-time on the project. If successful on Kickstarter, the funds will allow Juan to work on the project full time and to bring in other members of the team to polish and finish the game.
