Hex Gambit: Respawned


Remember when I said I’d try rebuilding Hex Gambit from scratch as a couch multiplayer game? Well… it’s called Hex Gambit: Respawned, and you can wishlist it on Steam today, if you like!

It may lack the online features of the original, but it’s going to have a lot of new stuff to offer in the way of AI, single player content, and controller support. Here’s what’s in the beta, going out to Kickstarter backers today:

Version 0.1.0

  • Local (couch) multiplayer, 1-4 players
  • Full controller support with flexible controller sharing options
  • Add 1-3 Easy or Smarter AI opponents to your match (soldiers only for now)
  • Free for All & 2v2
  • Player handicaps help new players compete against veterans.
  • Unique maps for 2, 3, and 4 player games.
  • 5 Captains to choose from, each with a unique minion loadout.
  • 7 Minion classes
  • 7 team color variants
  • Nostalgic placeholder music.

Coming next version: the rest of the minion AI will be hooked up. I’ll probably add some captains, and may get to mock up some single player challenges.

    Not to diminish what you have done as I know it’s a lot of work, but I was wondering if the switch port was going to be finished, or at least a version similar to what you are doing here. Sounds like you have done a great job!

      Thanks for keeping up with the project! A Switch port is up in the air atm. I’d really like to, but I’ve never ported anything before so I don’t want to make promises. Won’t know what’s happening with that until the game is finished and I can shift my focus in that direction.
