Roll7 and Devolver Digital have come together to announce the indie cover-based shooter Not A Hero i is set to launch on PC via Steam, GOG, and Humble on May 7th and on PlayStation 4 and Vita later this year.
In honor of the announcement Roll7 has collaborated with the Committee to Elect BunnyLord to launch a new politically charged mayoral campaign ad for BunnyLord.
Not A Hero follows professional assassin-turned-amateur campaign manager, Steve, who is charged with cleaning up the city by an anthropomorphic rabbit and mayoral candidate from the future named BunnyLord.
Now Steve and his band heroes must use their unique skills to shoot, slide, dive and take cover behind a political platform built on ethics, accountability, and an inordinate amount of gunfire. Eliminate the criminal underworld of the city’s three major districts and persuade undecided voters to your cause, tackling the issues that matter by putting a gun in the mouth of those issues.
Powered by ISO-Slant, a new proprietary technology that allows game developers to reach the between 2D and 2½D perspectives with minimal effort. Not A Hero’s developer Roll7, is able to alter the standard 2D pixel art action game into a 2¼D visual that creates a unique new genre for the game.
