The Man in the Cape: Special Edition is Coming Soon!


I'm Anthony, the developer of the stealth game Turnover. I'm back with another game project: The Man in the Cape: Special Edition!

A fast paced, silly, and surreal twin stick shooter, The Man in the Cape: Special Edition pits "superhero" The Man in the Cape against nefarious Mr. Granderson's superhero elimination dungeon! Test your might against an array of strange, nanotech-infused creations! Join the fight to bring Mr. Granderson to justice!

The Man in the Cape was originally released on October 15th, 2012 and it was my first solo-developed game project. Now, the action lives on as The Man in the Cape: Special Edition.

Improvements from the original version
  • Added popular 16:9 resolutions, including 1920x1080, 2560x1440, and 4K.
  • The game's frame rate cap has been raised to 240.
  • A large number of issues have been fixed, spanning input, art, bugs, and crashes.
  • The entire game has been rebalanced, from rooms to boss battles, for a more enjoyable experience.
  • XInput support has been added and general controller support has been improved.
  • Steam Achievements has been added.

The Man in the Cape: Special Edition will be released October 17th, on its belated 5th anniversary. Add it to your wishlist today!

About This Game


The Man in the Cape: Special Edition is a twin stick, run-and-gun, arcade-style shooter. The Man in the Cape must blast his way past the hordes of creatures, room to room, in a quest to escape from Mr. Granderson's nefarious superhero elimination dungeon!

  • Over 60 Rooms of Terror: Challenge yourself in Mr. Granderson's dungeon. It spans 60+ rooms, filled to the brim with vile, nanotech infused monstrosities! Be the superhero mankind deserves!

  • Overcome Mr. Granderson's Supervillain Army: Encounter nanotech infused bugs, sad robots, former armyman-turned-bad guys, and even an angry Pill Bug in Granderson's elimination dungeon!

  • Use Guns and Gold: Pick up dropped weapons to give The Man in the Cape a boost of firepower! Collect mountains of silver and gold to buy upgrades to give yourself superhuman speed and endurance!

  • Terrifyingly Strange Boss Battles: Pit yourself in a fight to the death against a stomach virus, a burning woman, and a man wearing a fireplace rug as a cape in oddly staged boss battles!


Mr. Granderson, the owner of Granderson Electronics Repair, is a simple businessman. He works hard and keeps to himself. But somehow, his building has become a magnet for superheroes, who feel the need to stand on his roof to cast an eye over their beloved city.

Having had enough, Mr. Granderson concocted a plan for revenge. In a form never seen before, Mr. Granderson then constructed a vast underground superhero elimination dungeon to trap all those who seek to trespass on his property. It was only a matter of time before Granderson would find success, having trapped popular "superhero" The Man in the Cape!

With a "take no prisoners" pledge, The Man in the Cape must now fight against the dungeon's horde of nanotech driven creatures and bring Mr. Granderson to justice!
