Its launch trailer was soaked in blood and British humour, but all that bluster is hiding a very clever, very precise video game.
Warning: Playing just five minutes of Roll7’s Not A Hero can result in facial detonation euphoria and the random affectation of a horrific British accent. Ask your doctor if Not A Hero is right for you.
In this line of work, you see a lot of trailers. Almost all the trailers. So it takes a lot to make me sit up and go “wow, that’s a good video game trailer”.
Spoiler: the stupid joke-gimmick glasses I'm wearing at the beginning of this video don't do anything to make Not a Hero look any cooler. That's okay, though. The new over-the-top action game doesn't need help looking cool, because it happens in 2.25D.
You're going to experience the next game from the folks who made OlliOlli in a different way. Not in two dimensions. Not in two-and-a-half dimensions. In two-and-a-quarter dimensions. Let's get some perspective on that, shall we?
