Hellish Quart is a sword dueling video game developed by Kubold.
Here is an overview of the game, thanks to Hellish Quart:
A historical fighting game about sword dueling, in which the blades really clash using physics, and the characters use motion-captured fencing techniques. Play as one of many 17th century warriors and use sabers, rapiers, broadswords, and many other blades in the single-player campaign, arcade, or local multiplayer with friends.
- physical Sword Fighting Using Active Ragdolls
- super realistic, motion-captured fencing animations
- beautiful, historically accurate 3d scanned graphics
Hellish Quart uses active ragdolls and all damage your blade can do is calculated with realtime physics. Four gamepad buttons represent 4 attack angles. Different button combinations give special attacks and combos. If you are not attacking, your character will automatically try to hold guard against your opponent’s attacks. The blades really block each other and that’s what’s keeping you alive. To win, you must use proper timing, measure, technique, speed and wits – just like when fencing in the real world.
