88 Heroes 2D platformer delayed until later 2016 linux mac pc

Video game publisher Rising Star Games and game developer #BitmapBureau have delayed the #release of the 2D platformer 88 Heroes for #Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

The details in the video below seem to imply that part of the games source code has been shared online. Which would indeed upset development.


  • Built with the “Super House of Dead Ninjas” game engine, 88 Heroes will be more expansive and feature even more variety in gameplay
  • The game will be developed in Open FL, targeting PC, Mac, Linux and eventually consoles
  • Steam API integration – Cloud saving, achievements, trading cards and leaderboards
  • The hero and room order will be randomly generated with each play, meaning that players will always face a fresh challenge
  • Hundreds of rooms across multiple areas to conquer with fearsome boss encounters
  • Integrated level-editor allows players to upload their own room designs to Steam Workshop to share with the community
  • 88 unique playable characters! Never seen before! Never done before! NEVER AGAIN!!
  • Imagine every 2D action-platformer you’ve ever played rolled into one…AND THEN SOME!
  • Slick retro (eighty) 8-bit look and ‘80s inspired chip-tune soundtrack.
  • Watch the action from Dr.H8’s lair and watch him try to thwart your plans, drink coffee, go for toilet breaks and berate his accident prone henchmen!
  • Bags of in-game humour, dialogue and cutscenes.
  • Did we already say?…88 HEROES!! Just imagine drawing all that!?(Poor artists…)
