I love this press release. It basically calls into question your self worth. Do you want to be more? Should you be more? … do you often stare at yourself in the mirror whilst wearing tights? Wait. Maybe isn’t  calling into question your self worth but more like how you spend your free time. Anyhow, if you own more than one cape we welcome you to the world of 88 Heroes.  If you don’t…go buy one?!?!

This chaotic 2D platformer is supposed to be as much fun to watch as it is to play. Well, they can’t claim that and not back it up with a trailer of some sort. Not a new one but here is the announcement trailer at least.




Did you ever think you were destined for more? Do you often stare at yourself in the mirror whilst wearing tights? Do you own more than one cape? If so, welcome to the world of 88 Heroes. The game is a chaotic 2D platformer that is as fun to watch as it is to play, where each level completed or untimely death brings a new hero with their own bizarre and hilarious skills into the action. With just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, games will need every one of the 88 heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 from destroying the Earth! Are you up to the challenge?

88 Heroes Key Features:

  • 88 unique and original playable characters, each with their own skills and abilities that may help – or hinder! – the player.
  • Hero order is randomly selected with each play, meaning players will always face a fresh and varied challenge.
  • 88 levels across 4 zones to conquer, each with its own unique boss encounter.
  • Multiple game modes including: Magnificent 8 mode – choose a team of just 8 heroes to tackle the entire game with; Solo mode – pick just one hero and master their skills in order to survive as long as you can.
  • 2 additional heroes and 8 new levels in H8 Mode are featured exclusively to the physical boxed edition.
  • Watch the action from Dr. H8’s lair as he tries to thwart your plans, drinks coffee, takes bathroom breaks and berates his accident-prone henchmen.
  • More heroes incoming with DLC!
