Hack 'n' Slash

New Hack 'N' Slash Trailer Is Totally Rad

We've been looking forward to spending more time with Double Fine's upcoming Hack 'n' Slash, and the wait is nearly over. The company says it's coming soon to Steam Early Access, and they've released a retro-style trailer to mark the occasion.

Fans of the original Legend of Zelda ads might recognize the video's general tone, but the gameplay is decidedly more contemporary. We got to check it out recently, and it's a great concept: Players explore an adventure game while "hacking" into the code and manipulating the way it's played. For instance, in the screen above, our hero could be changing the behavior of an enemy to keep it rooted to the ground while being attacked. It's a clever idea, and we can't wait to see more of it in action.

The game will be available for $14.99 on PC, Mac, and Linux in the coming weeks.
