OlliOlli dev reveals Not A Hero as next project

Pixelated gore is second-best gore

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.
