Hammerwatch Trailer

Hammerwatch is a Gauntlet-inspired dungeon crawler that can be played solo or cooperatively. The first trailer was released today, and if you like what you see you can vote for the game on Steam Greenlight.

A hack and slash action adventure, set in a fantasy pixel art environment. Solo or cooperate in this adventure from bottom to top of Castle Hammerwatch. Kill hordes of enemies with varied looks and features through four unique enviroments with traps, hidden secrets and puzzles.

The game is inspired by the old Gauntlet-series, but adds a lot with online support, character development, complex levels, bosses, and much more. Like gauntlet, the focus is fast paced action, but with elements that forces you to think just a little bit more!

Looks like it could be fun when everything gets all hectic.

I'm getting tired of the 8-bit "retro style" looking games.

The art assets are much easier to make.

My favorite modern "retro" game is Path of Exile. The graphics are really pretty for what's essentially a very polished Diablo.
