Roguelike Hero

Publisher X.D. Network and developer Carrya.Tec have announced Roguelike Hero, a comedy action game where you play as a walk-on actor as he fights his way through various action movie sets. It will be released for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam with English, Japanese, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese subtitles. A release date was not announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via X.D. Network:


Roguelike Hero is a comedy action game. You play as a shameless hero that would fight dirty and with no shame of throwing one or two sucker punches. Heavily inspired by Stephen Chow’s trolling comedy style, the game presents an absurd and funny action experience with trolling mechanics.

The “Hero” is a walk-on actor, struggling to get a good role. Each stage is an action movie set piece and players fight though various enemies with absurd and silly ways to complete the filming. There are a big amount of trolling weapons and moves such as the fart counter move and spit attack. You can expect to see more silly and interesting implementation of classic action game mechanics and witness the growth of the clownish, hilarious yet justice and brave protagonist.
