Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

HellEscape » New mechanism: BRUTALITY ATTACK

I added a new powerup / mechanics : Brutality Attacks.
When you combo-kill enemies you get brutality points at a rate based on the combo size. When the combo breaks, these brutality points are spent on a special attack based on one of your class signature weapons. For example, the Knight will throw Fire Axes to all directions.

The Brutality Attack got up to 5 levels, charged by increasing brutality points.

In addition to these attacks I also made the SOUL boss a lot more interesting by giving it the same weapons you use! To defeat it you’ll need to pick skills that are useful in your hands, but not very useful when used against you..

All changes:
– Added ‘Marauder’ powerup + Brutality special attack mechanism.
– Added achievement: ‘Brutality’.
– Replaced ‘Lava River’ Pyro mission with Brutality mission.
– Made mission progress bar more clear.
– Added cool mechanics to the ‘SOUL’ boss – it will now gain whatever weapon your own hero learns!
– Made ‘Blessed Hammer’ be affected by player direction.
– Made ‘Balls of Steel’ shoot slightly less often.
– Slightly increased Chicken mount health.
– Changed daily challenges to give rewards based on the stage they are set in.
