Not A Hero

OlliOlli is a brilliant 2D skateboarding game that’s currently on the PS Vita. It’s also coming to the PC and PlayStation 4 soon, so expect it there. The developers of that game, Roll7, have partnered up with publisher Devolver Digital to bring us Not A Hero. You’ll see GIFs of that game all over this post.

Not A Hero will release for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this summer.

According to the official blog post announcing the game from Devolver Digital, “Not A Hero is a 2¼D cover-based shooter that has absolutely no qualms with handing you your own ass the minute you peek out from cover this summer.”

I love every bit of that, especially the ludicrous 2¼D stuff.

The game promises a few bits of awesomeness in the announcement. Here are the bullet points.

  • Next Level Shootouts – Use the quick snap cover system to duck behind all forms of covers to dodge enemy fire and strategically plan your next clip-emptying strike. Reload at your own discretion but don’t let the enemy hear you lest they charge your position and put you down.

  • Roster of Not Heroes – Select between different total badasses each with their own distinct gameplay style and abilities to take out the trash if you consider criminals trash. Go hard with a shotgun, go quick with a dash and a katana, or go raw with your bare hands.

  • Dynamic Missions – Go ham on primary objectives and risky secondary goals but be prepared for unexpected mid-level events that turn the tables on your hero in an instant. Nothing will put a damper in your perfectly timed-executions like a nosy SWAT team or building security patrol.

We’ll have more on Not A Hero as it comes, so stay tuned. This thing looks ridiculous.
