Instead, they just did it without thinking about it. And that must have worked because we are still here to talk about it. Find out how the hordes of the undead were defeated in Heidelberg 1693, out today on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.

Heidelberg 1693 is a challenging 2D Action platformer set in a zombie-infested version of 17th century Germany in which the player takes control of one of French King Louis XIV’s famous musketeers. The game adds a layer of tactical combat to the genre by introducing the weapon of choice of musketeers: the musket. Players will be able to fire one powerful – and very effective- musket shot at a time. The weapon must be used wisely because of its long reset time though. Heidelberg 1693 tells its somber story – featuring real locations and historical figures – across multiple paths and endings.
