by Rainier on Oct. 21, 2020 @ 1:19 p.m. PDT

Underhero is a colorful 2D RPG-platformer featuring a unique timing-based combat in a magical madcap adventure with a twist.

Underhero tells an intriguing and mysterious story, full of silly characters brimming with personality, quirky dialogue, and lots of weird humor.

Inspired by Paper Mario (among many other RPGs), Underhero offers its own oddball spin on RPG adventures with a special timing-based combat system, old-school platforming fun, a quirky cast of characters, and a lighthearted story about an unlikely hero on an unforgettable journey to save a kingdom.

Underhero it tells the story of a world where the chosen hero has failed and an underling of the main villain takes his place as the new “hero”. Aided by a magical companion, the accidental adventurer must purge all evil from the Chestnut Kingdom. 

Join Elizabeth IV and a little Masked kid in a journey across the Chestnut Kingdom to once again, defeat the evil Mr. Stitches! Meet friends, foes and other weird characters in the mysterious world of Underhero.

...Wait, once again!?
