Heroes Must Die is a great looking new action-RPG with gorgeous pixel art animation, a sophisticated story with branching pathways, unique hex-based combat, and a novel transmedia design – with a live action theatre production following the events in the game.
Upon release Heroes Must Die will be released in chapters, with decisions in game affecting the live action theatre production (which will also be available online) and attendance of the stage show affecting the game. The stage show will also offer additional story branches, expanding on the in-game story. It’s an interesting concept, that should bring a bit of interactivity to the theatre experience and help flesh out the game-world.
Aside from the interesting transmedia aspects, Heroes Must Die also looks like a genuinely fun action-RPG, with a branching story, great pixel art animation and unique turn based combat, in which you can unleash powerful combos in the attack phase, then select areas of the map they want to ‘dodge’ to and avoid enemy attacks.
It looks set to be a great action-RPG with a novel theatrical twist. The devs are very keen to get feedback on the game side of the experience, so sign up now to see more of this unique transmedia experience.
