Double Fine Productions announced today that Hack ‘n’ Slash, a hacking themed puzzle game, would be released in the first half of 2014 for PC, Mac and Linux. The game originally debuted during Double Fine’s Amnesia Fortnight 2012 internal game jam, selected by the public to be turned into a two-week prototype.
The game stars a young elf who happens to be a computer hacking wiz and must use her skills to cheat her way through a classic action/adventure game. The game was funded by Indie Fund, Humble Bundle, Hemisphere Games, make all, AppAbove Games, Adam Saltsman, The Behemoth, Morgan Webb, and Rob Reid as part of a two-game deal that also includes Spacebase DF-9, which released in Early Access Alpha and recouped its investment within two weeks.
The game’s code will reportedly contain algorithms.
Head over to the just-launched official site which contains a image of the game and its protagonist, who looks suspiciously similar to Link.
