Producer Interview

For those who are unfamiliar with the game can you give us an overview of Rusty Hearts?

Mark Hill:

Rusty Hearts is a fast-paced multiplayer online action game with intense beat-em-up style combat that takes place within a beautifully visualized anime-inspired world. Players can battle solo or as part of team to fight through epic monster battles, collect valuable loot, and level-up their heroes to learn amazing new skills and abilities. Think Castle Crasher meets Devil May Cry.


What types of classes will be available for players?

Mark Hill:

The Rusty Hearts story revolves around a specific group of characters all with their own backstories and fighting styles. Currently we are focusing on two of these heroes: Angela is a witch, who specializes in long-range magic attacks, but can also heal teammates with the right skill, and Tude is a powerful, but reluctant hero that specializes in close-encounter, fast melee combat.

How is the world designed? How do players explore?

Mark Hill:

Rusty Hearts is comprised of two main areas: The "hub" areas which are made up of various locations in the Rusty Hearts universe. Here, players can receive and complete quests, group up with friends and guilds, forge gear and weapons, learn new skills, and accomplish various other tasks in the game.

Next are the action-packed dungeons. As the game progresses, new and more complex dungeons will become available and players will be confronted with countless enemies and epic bosses. Here, players will gain Exp, collect loot, discover hidden areas, and unlock multiple difficulty levels.

Does the game offer cooperative play? How can players meet up?

Mark Hill:

Of course! True to the classic beat-em-up style games, Rusty Hearts allows parties of up to four players to battle alongside each other through the dungeons. Players can also create and join guilds to level-up along with their guildmates and gain access to special guild abilities.

Players can meet in the hub areas outside of the dungeons and send each other guild invites, group up, or just chat.

Rusty Hearts is currently in beta, what lessons have you learned from testing?

Mark Hill:

The Closed Beta for Rusty Hearts has not yet begun in North America, but we're working hard to launch it in July. We're also working closely with the game developers and our Perfect World Entertainment project teams to localize the game. We are looking forward to player feedback during closed beta, in order to bring the ultimate hack n' slash, dungeon crawler experience possible.

Tell us about the lore behind the game, what type of story will the players experience?

Mark Hill:

One thing that Rusty Hearts players are really going to appreciate is the deep and intriguing lore behind the game and the unique background story of each character.

Rusty Hearts revolves around the centuries-old conflict between humans, vampires, and other creatures of the night. We are confident that the combinations between the dark, gothic art styleof the environments, which perfectly reflects Rusty Hearts' brooding tone as well as the elements of humor and unexpected twists will deeply immerse players in the universe.

When can we expect more news about Rusty Hearts?

Mark Hill:
