Double Fine to introduce the world to the joy of hacking with Zelda-style adventure Hack 'n' Slash

Hacking becomes part of the game

Every year the staff of Double Fine take a couple of weeks out from their usual projects to indulge in a bit of a game jam called Amnesia Fortnight.

One of the most interesting titles created during this year's Anmesia Fortnight is Zelda-style adventure Hack 'n' Slash. This is no ordinary adventure though. The gameplay mechanics of Hack 'n' Slash involves hacking the game to reduce enemy's abilities and armour and unearthing the game's secrets.

Brandon Dillon, the project lead on Hack 'n' Slash said, “I've always loved games with lots of secrets in them. And when I first discovered a hex editor in an emulator, it dawned on me that I could be a kind of digital treasure hunter - no game could keep even its deepest secrets from me if I adventured long enough in its code and memory.” Double Fine to introduce the world to the joy of hacking with Zelda-style adventure Hack 'n' Slash

Hack 'n' Slash is due to be released on PC, Mac and Linux some time in the first half of 2014.
