Hack, Slash, Loot

As you all probably know I'm a sucker for roguelike games. Thus, I was extremely thrilled when I came across the new roguelike Hack, Slash, Loot. The game is made by David 'OddBall' Williams and he uses his own graphics posted a while back at TIGSource. This was the same post where I came across Oryx and his wonderful graphics (Oryx does the graphics to my own roguelike Dweller). Anyway, back on topic...

Hack, Slash, Loot is a very polished desktop roguelike available on PC, Mac and Linux. It features a nice graphical UI, mouse and keyboard controls and nicely generated dungeons to explore. A lot of work has been put into making it more accessible to non-roguelike players by adding a lot of animations and user interface polish (not very common in roguelikes in general). The game is still in beta, but it is very playable and feels stable.


  1. Hack, Slash, Loot was released on Steam today.
    It's currently on sale at 40% off, but also part of the Indie Royale April Fools Bundle.

  2. Thank's for the tip! HSL has become a really nice and polished game. Kudos to the developer!
