Underhero isn't your typical RPG-adventure: Classic elements like turn-based combat and exploration are shaken up with timing-based elements and 2D platforming. While a wide range of abilities are available, precisely-timed actions are actually the most powerful weapon to utilize during this quest.
Inspired by Paper Mario and many other RPGs with creative gameplay-elements, it tells the story of a world in which the chosen hero has failed due to an accident and an underling of the main villain is suddenly prompted to take his place as the new “hero”.
The game tells an intriguing and mysterious story, full of silly characters brimming with personality, quirky dialogue, and lots of weird humor. Join the legendary hilt Elizabeth IV and the little Masked Kid as they journey across the Chestnut Kingdom to defeat your evil supervisor, Mr. Stitches!
