Not a Hero
Roll7, the developer of the recent indie skateboarding game OlliOlli, has announced its next project. Not a Hero is a cover-based shooter that is played in a unique perspective.
Not a Hero is powered by ISO-Slant, a proprietary technology that Role7has partnered with, which lets developers display a perspective between 2D and 2.5D with minimal effort, according to Roll7. An example of this can be seen below.
The story centers on Steve, who has offered his skills with a gun to an anthropomorphic rabbit named BunnyLord who is running for mayor, and needs someone to clean up the streets. Steve needs clear five districts of crime, and will recruit new heroes has he goes.
