London-based studio Roll7 is beginning to establish a fruitful working relationship with indie publisher Devolver Digital. Having served up a concoction of Tony Hawks-inspired skateboarding fun with the delightful OlliOlli – not to mention its excellent sequel, Welcome to Olliwood – the developer is honing in on its upcoming pixel art title, Not a Hero.
Mixing elements of OlliOlli’s side-scrolling with the instant replay-ability found in Hotline Miami, Roll7’s shooter is already beginning to garner praise for its satirical take on London. Due to release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC later this year, the studio is ensuring the momentum continues by releasing a demo of Not a Hero, which is available today through Steam.
As a matter of fact, should players take a shine to the retro aesthetic and gameplay elements within the vertical slice, Roll7 noted that a 10% discount will be offered to those who wish to pre-order the indie title ahead of time, along with a free copy of the aforementioned OlliOlli. It’s an enticing deal, and one that will no doubt generate more interest in the low-key shooter as it gears up to its release next month.
According to Devolver, Roll7s’s Not a Hero is poised to make its way onto PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC in time for May 7.
