The Dark Heart Of Balor is a dark fantasy hack and slash side scroller, where you play the demon-possessed Hunter.

Archdemon Balor has opened the Gate of Hell into the human realm and hordes of demons and monsters have flooded into man’s world-destroying everything in their path. You must protect those who are still alive and ultimately destroy Balor to close the Gate. Your quest will take you across the continent of Eridun into dark crypts, demon-infested wilds, and demonic rifts in the fabric of the world. It will be full of deadly traps, ambushes, and puzzles. The diabolic foes in your way will test your combat skills and newly found arcane powers.

Will you become strong enough to put an end to Balor’s reign of terror?

The fate of the world depends on you, Hunter.

Developer Game Artists has launched The Dark Heart of Balor on Steam Early Access, where it will stay up to an additional year or more.

“Early Access version features a large set of levels that make up Act 1. It is several hours of gameplay, fully dressed up environment, a large variety of enemies, bosses, multiple magic spells and skills. Some combats, enemies, and magic abilities might feel a little bit off balance and/or need more polishing. Everything is playable and thoroughly tested to ensure a smooth gameplay.”

“The final release of the game will feature more game levels, better refined combat scenarios, general visual and gameplay improvements. Some content featured in early access might also get extra polishing and additional features.”

Key Features:

  • Thrilling 3D side-scrolling hack and slash gameplay.
  • An atmospheric dark fantasy world to explore. Each level in the game features a unique environmental design, variety of NPCs, and interesting use of player skills and locomotion.
  • A plethora of deadly weapons and powers to unlock. You have at your disposal an assortment of arms, melee and magical, that you can use in several powerful combinations.
  • An army of monsters and demons to slay.
  • Character upgrade system. As the game progresses, you will gain skill points that can be used to upgrade your character’s abilities, such as multiple offensive and defensive skills and magic.

The Dark Heart of Balor is coming to PC (Steam), Xbox, Playstation, and Nintendo Switch in 2023.
