Default Second Chance Heroes - Tesla and friends fights the apocalypse


Hello good people of Touch Arcade,

I wanted to take a few moments to introduce you guys to Second Chance Heroes, a game we've been working on at Rocket City Studios. Weve built a cooperative arcade action adventure where you play as and collect historical figures to take on an apocalypse of the absurd. This is a game where you can play as Abraham Lincoln with a chainsaw and fight off a sentient cheeseburger, or mow down hordes of angry purple aliens with a cigar chomping Queen Elizabeth I.


Weve been working on this thing since early 2010, and over time it became clear that the iPad/iPhone were really where the game belonged. For launch, well have 26 levels to explore, each 10-20 minutes long, and 12 historical characters. Beyond Abe and Liz, we also have an electric Nikola Tesla, wooden mech warrior Leonardo da Vinci, a ghostly Julius Caesar and many more (full roster here).

We set out to make a modern game with a very old-school feel. This is a game of power ups and explosions. Weve been pleased to hear people compare it to games like Gauntlet. Were not out to tell you another grim adventure of blood and gore and saving princesses. Our heroes are traipsing through a secret kingdom of Hobos, activating power-ups that make zombies dance.


As we approach release were almost done! I wanted to take a chance to introduce you all to the game and, of course, hear what you think. If you have any questions at all, Id be happy to answer them here or over on our forums.


Thanks for your time,

Dana

We're doing the final tuning now (fitting a game of this scale onto an iPhone is a challenge as you can imagine). We're aiming for later this year or early next year at the latest.

We got lucky and the first round of clones was able to grab Hubert during the attack and get him to safety, but in all the chaos all of his remaining DNA samples were carried off. They're well-sealed inside of old tennis ball containers, so there's a good chance that the samples are intact. We just need to hunt for them. If you can track them down, Hubert can supplement your clone army with new additions throughout the game.
Brilliant!

Thanks for the kind words.

One thing we're really trying to do is push the envelope of what these kinds of games can look like. Keep on following, you'll be playing in no time

This game looks insane! I will be waiting for it to launch! I like the premise for the characters you've used.

This certainly looks good. That lady with the minigun looks wicked good.
