Heart&Slash on Kickstarter:
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.
