Jochum Skoglund and Niklas Myrberg have offered a demo of their Gauntlet-inspired hack and slasher, Hammerwatch, for Windows. This demo features Act 1, with a boss, secrets, bonus level, money, and vendors. Players can cooperatively loot via local, LAN, and online (without chat) connections.
Hammerwatch is currently sitting on Steam Greenlight, where the developers are fielding issues or questions about the demo. Hammerwatch is still tentatively set for a Q2 2013 release on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
