OlliOlli Dev’s New Game Is A Cover Shooter
The world’s first 2.25D game.
Roll7, the guys who brought us the excellent skateboarding title OlliOlli on the PlayStation Vita earlier this year (with the game also coming to other systems later this year), have now announced their next game- Not A Hero, which they describe as the first indie cover based shooter for next gen consoles… presented in 2.25D (no, I’m not making this up, this is literally how they are pitching the game). Like OlliOlli, Not A Hero will also be published by Devolver Digital.
“The Roll7 team was less than enthused about partnering with a publisher of questionable morals and hygiene but through a series of legal maneuvers and old fashioned black magic here we are – stuck with Devolver Digital,” noted Roll7 creative director, John Ribbins.
“We are so glad to have partnered with the ISO-Slant team,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “While there are plenty of tools for 2D and 3D game development, if your ass wants some 2¼D action write that check for ISO-Slant, baby.”
The game will be out on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam later this year. It is also hitting the Xbox One and the PS4.
