A New Direction for “Stop That Hero!”

As much as Stop That Hero! has
provided me with a great opportunity and learning experience,
recent events have led me to seriously invest time
in a much needed redesign. As a casual strategy game, the game
left players with a fun and exciting way to be evil and have
fun at the same time. Still, I’ve received feedback
over the months that have led me to question some of the
original design decisions I’ve made, some of which might be
leaving money on the table, so to speak.

So, the good news is that I’m taking all of the great stuff I’ve
done so far, and I’m going to recreate “Stop That Hero!” as an FPS.
As a strategy game, I find the game enjoyable, but the masses seem to
yearn for something a bit more visceral.

“Stop That Hero!: Reloaded!” puts you in the role of the hero,
fighting off the minions of an evil villain bent on taking over
the world. With the roles reversed in this new design, I think it
can be much more enjoyable and easier for fans to relate to the characters.

It will feature multiple weapons, urban and jungle environments, an
innovative cover system, and customizable uniforms for you and
members of your elite squad of minion-hunting friends (multiplayer content,
including special hats, exclusively available as DLC).

I don’t want to give too much away, but I am excited about this
new direction for “Stop That Hero!” For now, I’ll leave you with this
mock-up to give you a taste of what to expect:
