Not a Hero Releasing in May

/ Apr 23rd, 2015 No Comments

Not a Hero

Roll7 announced its 2.25D cover-based shooter Not a Hero will release on May 7 for Steam.

The game will be available in two editions. The standard edition runs for $12.99. The “Global MegaLord Edition” will be $19.99 and nets players a copy of the game, the soundtrack, a making of documentary, a digital comic, and a digital art book. Players who pre-order Not a Hero will get ten percent off the game and a free copy of OlliOlli, which is giftable.

Not a Hero tasks players as Steve, a professional assassin who has been hired by the time-traveling BunnyLord. In his hopes to become the next elected official, BunnyLord is cleaning up the town of ruthless thugs and gangsters. It’s up to players, Steve, and Steve’s fellow assassin’s to further BunnyLord’s political aspirations.

Just as it did with skateboarding in OlliOlli, Roll7 is tackling cover shooters in an entirely ridiculous direction with Not a Hero. Brutally difficult and infused with style, each of the playable characters has their own particular way of playing and shooting.

In what may just be a clever marketing scheme or an actual credible hack, Roll7 claims a British political faction known as UJIP has illegally distributed a playable version of Not a Hero on the internet. Players interested in checking out a demo of the game can find it at the “official” UJIP party website.

A PS4 and PS Vita version of the game is planned for release later this year but no further details have been announced.

Quick Take

Hot off the heels of the exceptional OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood, hopes are high that Not a Hero will deliver on the same brand of fun gameplay and unique style. The idea of a time-traveling bunny attempting to get a seat in office certainly makes for a premise where anything is possible. When we had some hands-on time with the game at E3 last year, there was a good deal of potential. Let’s hope Roll7 stays on its streak of quality games.
