Hellish Quart, physics-sword fight, is out now



Bushido Blade is one of the video games that has become a legend. The 1997 PlayStation fighting game was defined not by combinations and health sticks, but by fast, tense sword fighting where a single strike could kill you or your opponent. There has been very little else since then.

Enter the Hellish Quart, out early today. It’s Bushid-ish – it’s swords, it’s duels, and it’s one-slash killings – but it’s a step further by having all your movements physics based.

The game̵

7;s Steam page says that the developers intend for the game to be in early access for one to two years. Aside from taking feedback from players, they will use that time to develop a full single player campaign. Given the historical setting, I hope it’s a bit like Ridley Scott’s The Duellists.

I’ve never played Bushido Blade, but I’ve probably had people talk to me about it. I say it is “transferred to legend” because I swear that half of the people who talk about it have not played it either – they have just read about it and think it sounds cool. Instead, I will choose to think of Hellish Quart as the upscale version of Nidhogg, another fantastic one-on-one swordfight. I’ve had many hours with funny shanking friends and tried to be eaten by a big worm in Nidhogg, and I hope for the same from Hellish Quart.

Unfortunately, Hellish Quart does not have an online multiplayer yet, but it does have a local multiplayer and supports Steam’s “Remote Play Together” feature, which allows you to play local multiplayer games over the internet. Does that kind of have online multiplayer, I guess. But there is no magic Steam feature that gives big worms into play, so there is still a lot to look forward to.

It’s a demo you can download via Steam, and the whole game costs you £ 11.46 / $ 14.44 / € 11.89.
