*Gasp* A fun water level!?

*Gasp* A fun water level!?

Hello everyone, happy new year! It has been a while.

We are making good progress with the game lately. Testing and polishing is taking most of our time, we can’t commit to a date yet, but we are getting there!

Today I wanted to talk about water jets!
In our last update, we showed a very sonic-esque animation if you recall.
Well that animation is for underwater sections.

We thought about how to make a water level "fun", and simply improving your mobility and removing the element of drowning actually makes these sections a lot of fun!

Your trajectory depends on the direction you make contact with the water jets. You can change your trajectory a little bit while rolling too! And pressing jump lets you stop the rolling.

The best part about this is that you can chain water jets, increasing your max speed exponentially! It’s really satisfying to pull off.
And underwater hazards like the ballon fish can be avoided if you’re rolling too.

Exploring underwater is really fun now! So we made sure to add secret chests and goodies throughout the level ;)

And to close today’s update, here’s a little story sneak peek!

Who is that "Don" they’re talking about?

(Let us know if you enjoy these kind of updates as announcements!
We could use this for smaller updates too.)

See you guys next time!

Big update! New things! Journals! And 2018!

Up and down and all around~

Ok! Let’s review (in no particular order) the things we have fixed and added to the game recently:
  • You can now exit the game after a checkpoint without fear of losing your progress! But only if you press "Continue" on the main menu. Using "load" will restart you at your last save station. Think of checkpoints as soft saves, and save stations as hard saves from now on.
  • Remember those little hiccups after you saved or passed through a checkpoint? Gone.
  • You can now bribe enemies right from the get go, instead of attacking first.
  • We now have a pretty loading screen!
  • Added skip options for all tutorials.
  • Some conversations with Elizabeth are optional now. If you don’t want to hear what she has to say you can just ignore her (you monster).
  • You can use keyboard and controllers at the same time now.
  • We added a traveling merchant for certain places! They will sell useful stuff like magic anvils, potions and other things!
  • Fixed many bugs, like, you wouldn’t believe.

And last but not least, we have added a handy journal for your adventure!

You will be able to check your journal and see how your adventure is going:
  • Stopped playing for a few days and forgot what you were doing? Journal!
  • Want to know what the protagonist thinks of the adventure so far? Journal!
  • Forgot about some side quest and want a quick reminder? You guessed it!

And yes, the main character writes! Being quiet doesn’t mean you can’t talk somehow.


That’s it for today!

We wanted to talk about more stuff, but I think it’s better if we discuss it a little more in the upcoming updates.

There’s still a lot of work ahead of us, but we are getting closer and closer.
So please, be patient! We want you to play this thing as much as you, but the game still requires more testing, work and polish.

A 2017 release is no longer possible (even after doing everything we could). We are now aiming for early 2018!

See you next time!

About This Game


Underhero is a 2D side-scroller RPG adventure game with timing-based combat. It tells an intriguing and mysterious story, full of silly characters brimming with personality, quirky dialogue, and lots of weird humor.


Inspired by Paper Mario games and RPGs in general, 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”. Join the magical hilt Elizabeth the IV and the little Masked Kid, as they travel the world to restore Elizabeth’s long lost power, so they can defeat the tyrannical Mr. Stitches and save the world once and for all!


  • A sidescrolling RPG adventure full of beautiful pixel art and cartoony aesthetics.
  • Turn-based combat with a twist: there are no turns! All you have is your reflexes and your timing. We call it timing-based combat.
  • Attack to the beat of the music to chain rhythm combos! Groovy~
  • Enemies consider you their ally, so you can talk to them!
  • A wonderful original soundtrack composed by Stijn van Wakeren.
  • An always evolving HUB world full of characters.
  • Mini games!
  • Light puzzle elements.
  • Some good old platforming.
  • Fun and intense boss battles!
  • A satire of RPG tropes.
  • A story shrouded in mystery…
