Early Access title

Humans are long gone and all that remains are machines, working through the motions set-up by their masters many ages ago. Their sole priority is to ensure everything complies with the obscure standardization protocol, under the supervision of the all-seeing robot leader Quality Assurance System (QuAsSy).

But not all robots are the same. Maybe a result of faulty wiring, there are some willing to stand for themselves, to resist conformity and find their identity.

This bleak lifeless world doesn't cut it. You are Heart and you want MORE.You want to become so unique and dashing that nobody will dare look away from you.

YOU WANT TO BE LOVED...


HEART&SLASH; is a fast paced brawler with roguelike elements, inspired in equal parts by Bayonetta, Megaman and ADOM. It is also a throwback to our earlier years as gamers, when playing games was all joy...

Started as a personal part-time project (you can follow the development process here), Heart&Slash; has grown into something bigger than initially intended. From a one-man project, it soon became clear that a bigger team is required to make it the game it deserves to be.

  • Die and try again. Heart&Slash; is not an easy game. But dying shouldn't matter as robots can be easily and indefinitely cloned. Every time you start a new game, the levels you fight through, and the items or weapons you collect, will change.
  • A unique art style that will bring back the memories of game systems long gone.
  • 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 so on. From the trivial to the game-changing, you can try thousands of different combinations.
  • The game will have almost no downtime. Levels are short and brutal, and the game, in a successful run, should not be too taxing on your time (whether you will ever be able to make a successful run is another matter). Heart&Slash; aims to offer the player something new and challenging. Ultimately, playing Heart&Slash; is not about mastering one system. Instead, it’s about being able to adapt to what you are given and making the best out of it.

Hi everybody,

it's been a looong road, but finally we are ready to announce the final release of Heart&Slash! We have even made a video about it:



So yes, Heart&Slash will release:

June 24th 2016 for PS4 and XboxONE.


The PC version will come a little bit later, in August 2016.

This has been a very rough and exciting road for us. Honestly, we couldn't imagine when we started were this would be taking us, or how long would it take. We've loved and hated the proccess, back and forth, but at the end we managed to endure, with the help of some amazing partners, and we are now ready to let the game free for everybody to try.

We hope you enjoy it!

Juan Raigada

I can't access the level up menu for some reason, Is it not implemented yet or am I doing something wrong?

Hi. There were some problems related to frame rate issues. These builds are a little old now, but we plan on releasing new public builds in the next month. They will be limited to the first level and lack lots of content, but will serve as our demos and technichal benchmarks.
