Set in the Sturmfront - The Mutant War universe, Heidelberg 1693 is a gory 2D Contra-like game developed by Andrade Games and ported to consoles by Red Art Games.

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.

Heidelberg 1693 features:

  • Classic 2D action platformer
  • Story set in a 17th-century uchronia
  • Unique musket mechanic adds a layer of strategy to the action
  • Featuring authentic locations and historical figures
  • Beautifully animated sprites
  • Animated cutscenes inspired by silent era films
  • Multiple endings

On Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, Heidelberg 1693 will cost €14.99/$14.99/£13.49 digitally. To celebrate the game’s upcoming release, players who pre-order the game digitally on Nintendo Switch or Xbox One between November 11th and November 17th at 11:59 PM will receive a 10% discount.

Heidelberg 1693 will be released for console on November 18, 2022 along with the physical editions for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 & Nintendo Switch!
