Keeping a watch on Hammerwatch

It's co-op dungeon fighting time! Jochum Skoglund and Niklas Myrberg's Gauntlet-inspired Hammerwatch is still under heavy development, but the duo has already released a demo to make sure we stay excited. The teaser includes the entire first act of the game, complete with secrets, money, shops, a bonus level and a boss. Three of the four classes are currently playable, and co-op play for up to four players (online, local or LAN) is ready to roll.

Keep in mind this is a beta demo, so there will likely be an issue or two as you squash bats and various larvae with your sword. Gamepad support is enabled and works quite well, but there's no save feature yet. You can tough it out, right? The final version of Hammerwatch will include lots more content, the Warlock class, a complete survival mode, and a level editor.

Hammerwatch is set for release Q2 2013 for PC, Mac and Linux. In the meantime, show some support on the game's Greenlight page!
