The Badass Hero is a rogue-lite action-platformer, set in a comic book universe. Experience fast-paced hit-and-run gameplay and never do the same thing twice, thanks to procedurally generated levels and random items – all in highly refined, modern, hi-res 2D art.
Somehow chaos has entered the comic book multiverse and your whole world has gone nuts! That is how your story starts: you come from a long-gone era and were once a great hero, but now things have gone bad – your powers have been lost! Your quest is simple, yet deadly – you need to write your story anew and relive your greatest accomplishments. Order will be restored if and only if you prove that you are the true Badass Hero.
Your guns are your best friends, and ink is the new gold – collect it from defeated enemies to upgrade your hero. The more dynamic and forceful your play style, the greater the rewards! There is always a cost, though. Stay focused at all times, or you will die sooner than you think.
The Badass Hero will feature the following:
-Comic book setting – dive into the comic book reality with Metal Slug inspired visuals.
-Action platforming with 360° shooting – jump, dash, shoot, slash and blow things up like a real badass!
-Procedurally generated levels – you will never know what waits for you around the corner.
-Customizable character – take advantage of the Steam Workshop and make the hero your own.
-Permadeath with character progression – you will keep the collected ink even if you die.
-Three unique comic book stories to play through.
-Face the Evil God in Awakening of the Ancient Gods!
-Defeat the Nazis in Operation Crimson Dusk!
-Defend the Earth from alien invasion in Earth’s Last Stand!
