Hero Core Trailer

This has been posted everywhere already, but it’s just so rad I can’t help myself!

Hero Core is the next game from Iji creator Daniel Remar, due out May 1st. Sequel to his retro-inspired action/adventure Hero, it features an open map, a bunch of secrets, multiple difficulties and modes (that even change the layout of the game), an alternate “retro” language setting, and “up to two colors simultaneously!” Well, right on!

    You had me sold there.

  • Ethan

    Daniel Remar, as Ezuku said, is as far as I need to read to understand that I’m buying the hell out of this game.

  • undertech

    Now that’s how to do a game trailer. Reminds me of tv commercials for NES games back in the day.

    Iji is the best fucking freeware game i’ve ever played, I have no idea why it doesn’t get more love in the community.

    this game should be great too

    Pfft, forget Iji! I became a fan of Daniel Remar way back when Hero was released. That’s still plenty to be excited about this guy.

    Not a big fan of Iji, but I liked this guys other work, Hero especially. This is great news.

  • Codemonkey

    Hold everything! It has GRAY in the movie, therefore the description is a lie!

  • commenter_with_no_name

    Very impressive trailer, just as with Iji. I’m getting a serious Metroid vibe from it(trailer and game, which I view as a positive. Looks fun, I wonder if there will be a dx color version?

  • krotzky

    I really liked Hero and this looks about a million times better! It’ll kick my ass though, I’m sure.

    “Reminds me of tv commercials for NES games back in the day.”

    That’s what retro developers need to start doing is making commercials of kids fighting over the controller and wowing at the graphics, like old Atari / Nintendo commercials.

    That and trippy box cover art that has nothing to do with the game itself. God I miss the old days!

  • entrope

    dude’s really come to like his big blocks of expository text and LEVEL UPs. too bad when the original hero was so clean.

    screen burn effect is nice though

    Metroid meets R-type.

  • Fuck Yeah

    Oh great, another retro looking indie game. This is great, really. Really great. Awesome.

  • fayes
