The lights are on
Once again this year, Devolver Digital camped out across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center with a number of trailers each devoted to a single indie title. This year's lineup was even stronger, in part due to the inclusion of Roll7 (Olli Olli) and Not a Hero.I was first introduced to Not a Hero and the sinister, and slightly mental, mayoral candidate Bunnylord at PAX East. In the few months between, the game has gotten better and my interest in playing it in final form has solidified.Not a Hero puts you in command of one of 10 different characters, each with his or her own skills. We played as a new gun for hire, Clive. This cigarette-smoking, dapper gent automatically shoots in both directions when he's surrounded. The trick is to watch his ammo and time your reloads strategically.To complicate things, Roll7 has added a new objective system. Each level has four stars to earn, and in order to get the best rating you'll need to complete the level and achieve all three bonus tasks in a single run through the stage. Some objectives are more difficult (or impossible) without a specific "employee."
