Keyboard, Japanese, join in progress, and more!


Hellcard is a unique cooperative deck builder rogue-like game. Descend into the paper dungeons on your own, recruit computer-controlled companions or join other players' lobbies in fast-paced tactical card battles against the armies of darkness and the Archdemon himself!

Thanks to our community translator Dumpty, we can add the Japanese language today! We are also experimentally rolling out an often-requested feature: play while you wait. You can now enter matchmaking and start the run alone. Other players will be able to join you while you play. The caveat here is that the game will be more challenging since there are no companions in co-op mode. Aside from the above today's update introduces some quality-of-life changes and fixes a crash. You can read the full changelog below. Version 1.0.240305 - 5 Mar 2024 [list] [*] Added join-in-progress functionality to co-op mode. You can now start a multiplayer run alone with player slots open and other players may join your lobby. You can then either retreat from battle (without losing HP) to play with them right away or finish the current fight and meet them in the lobby afterward [*] Added keyboard support to battle (number keys for player cards, function keys for companion cards) [*] Added click-to-select cards to battle (which works alongside current drag-to-select) [*] Added easier navigation on the controller to the language window [*] Added Japanese translation. Dumpty, thank you for your hard work! [*] Fixed Travel Light achievement not working for Tinkerer [*] Fixed Deck and Almanac windows not opening by controller shortcuts on some Location's windows [*] Fixed crash when pasting special characters to Feedback Widget [/list] As Always, Stay Safe in Paper Dungeons :archduck: Konstanty
