Not Just Yet: Not A Hero Gets Delayed A Week

Bad news, to my fellow PC Brethren who’ve had their eyes and hearts clocked to May 7th as the release date for Not A Hero [official website], that side-on shooter from the dudes behind OlliOlli.

You’re going to have to wait exactly seven additional days before you see that baby, which granted isn’t much of a wait. Just think of all the things you can do instead! Paint a room, think about dogs, and so on.

The week-long delay is for additional tweaks and testing on a tech update, said Roll7. And it’s quite a hefty update, one “which brought the action from a dull and dreary 30fps to a pants tingling 60fps.” reads a statement from the company. “It’s like the game is licking your eyeballs now.”

Not unless it plans to buy me dinner first.

“Throughout the rigorous beta testing phase of Not A Hero, the most consistent feedback was to increase the frame rate to 59 frames per second,” said producer Simon Bennett. “Well, we went a step further and took Not A Hero up to 60 frames per second. You’re welcome.”

Not A Hero is a “point-scoring, man-murdering, pixel-bleeding, die/restart run and gun game, it’s also a cover shooter,” said Alice so pointedly last year. The game sees a professional assassin-turned-amateur campaign manager try to clean up a city for a new mayoral candidate.

A demo’s available on Steam and through these mirrors. The game’s now due on May 14th.

    Can you PLEASE fix the carousel thing, the thing above the comments section, below the “more from the web” taboola poo, which shows other articles on RPS, the “code” [no idea what i am talking about] is effed up and every time i load/reload a page it is concertinaing down like a vomiting, digital slide-whistle, its horrible.

    p.s – The whole site looks like a dog’s digit right now, maybe time for a change, back to the original design maybe, since this one has been generally hated since it changed, by me. I don’t speak for others.

    Well, that looks delightfully like a mashup of Gunpoint and Hotline Miami 1.

      It is like Hotline Miami in style but that’s not a bad thing.
