Hack ‘n’ Slash is a puzzle action game about hacking -- reprogram object properties, hijack global variables, hack creature behavior, and even rewrite the game’s code! Your sword can hack the variables of objects. You find magic artifacts that allow you to tune global variables to your liking. Discover equipment that lets you see the game’s internal debug visualization to uncover things that weren’t meant to be seen. As you achieve advanced hacking mastery, you’ll be able to dive directly into the game’s assembly in the form of procedurally generated dungeons and modify the live-running code.
The core Hack ‘n’ Slash team consists of eight developers wearing many different hats, but the project has received a lot of support from specialists within Double Fine.
Hack ‘n’ Slash is an adventure/puzzle game that lets you use real hacking and reverse engineering tools to take apart the game as you’re playing it. It’s inspired by childhood experiences using emulator hacking tools to cheat at classic video games, and is built to let people experience the empowering, intellectually stimulating experiences that come from hacking without having to have any prior programming knowledge.
