Retro-fabulous OlliOlli developer Roll7 has announced its next project, and if these first couple of screenshots are any indication, it's going to be deliciously, decadently violent. You're looking at Not A Hero, a 2D cover shooter being published by Devolver Digital for PC and consoles. 

Not A Hero follows the misadventures of Tron Bonne Steve, a "murderous loner" who's enlisted by the anthropomorphic BunnyLord to clean up the city before a mayoral election. As Steve, it's your job to clear out five different districts of crime to ready the city for their overlord and bucktoothed master. That means you're gonna kill a lot of dudes.

Roll7 is touting several different characters with their own unique weapons (like shotguns and katanas so you can relive those GunZ: The Duel days) and a presentation they're calling ISO-Slant, a mixture of side-scrolling and isometric aesthetics. 

Pictured above in the first half is Rust Cohle in 2012, and the bottom depicts the massacre I'd leave in my wake if told I could take home an honest-to-goodness ParaParaParadise machine as a prize. Actually, I'd be willing to bet that suave cigarette-smoking Cool Guy is Steve, and that trail of bodies happened because BunnyLord willed it. It's actually looking pretty sweet, like tenants from your Tiny Tower game went on a rampage.

You can get your hands on Not A Hero tomorrow if you'll be attending Rezzed, a UK event poised to showcase quite a few upcoming games, but otherwise the final product is slated for release this summer.

No Man's Sky planning 'something different' at PlayStation Experience

I've been excited for No Man's Sky for almost a years' time now, but it has become a passive excitement as I wait patiently for it to release. This video, what with some footage I haven't seen and it generally looking a...more

I played a bunch of bizarre first-person shooters so you don't have to

You remember Superhot, don't you? It's a first-person shooter in which time progresses at a normal speed only when you move. Or how about Receiver? It had somewhat realistic gun handling that made for a rewarding experience. ...more

The Blue Flamingo is a ridiculously adorable shmup

Swedish game studio Might and Delight really knows how to make games that stand out visually. Its attractive-looking paper art style on the Shelter series is, in my mind, unmistakable. I can recognize the stud...more
