We have a bunch of Next Up Hero beta keys to give away, so grab one quickly to test out this new 2D adventure game with an interesting co-op mechanic!
First off, Happy New Year to everyone!
So a couple of days ago, Chris Bashaar from Aspyr emailed Death by Beta asking if we would like to give away some keys to the final Next Up Hero beta. Well, as you can imagine, that was an easy decision. And so, all of you can now grab a key from the Next Up Hero beta key giveaway below!
Next Up Hero is being developed by Digital Continue and published by Aspyr. I must admit that it sounds like a lot of fun. Next Up Hero is designed as a 2D arcade adventure game with a hefty difficulty setting and a rather cool sounding co-op mechanic. Essentially, when you die (and you will die, by the sound of it), another player seamlessly takes over from where you feel. Moreover, your corpse is rezzed to fight along side them as an AI companion. The idea is that the entire community is working together to defeat the game. Here is part of the official press release to explain it further:
“Next Up Hero is a 2D action adventure driven by Community Continue. Next Up Hero is inspired by friends taking turns at the arcade to beat unfairly difficult games, and designed so beating a session is a shared victory and more fun than playing on your own.”
“When you die, you’ll leave behind an Echo of your hero on the battlefield. The next hero in line will be able to resurrect your Echo as an AI battle companion. Take turns continuing each other’s games, fighting and dying with friends until you have an entire army of Echoes by your side. Everyone dies. Heroes continue”
That sounds like a lot of fun to me. Check out the game’s Steam page for more details. Anyway, the final Next Up Hero beta test is now live before the game launches into early access on January 11. Better yet, anyone that participates in the Next Up Hero beta test will be granted a discount for the early access game. Noice!! Grab a Steam key below and jump into the Next Up Hero beta ASAP. Enjoy!
