Frantic, funny, and full of hapless hopeless heroes, the crowd-pleasing platform action game 88 Heroes is assembling for launch this Summer

LOS ANGELES, CA – May 12th, 2016 – Rising Star Games today announces a new partnership with acclaimed development studio Bitmap Bureau, to publish 88 Heroes on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PC, Mac, Linux and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. Targeting a release date of the 8th day of the 8th month (8th August 2016), Rising Star Games will be revealing a new hero each and every day for 88 days counting down to launch. The mighty assemblage begins today with Gonan, the muscle-bound warrior who wields the mighty blade of his 88 forefathers, which he uses to smash through walls and lay waste to enemies.

Rising Star Games and Bitmap Bureau are also excited to reveal that a global 88 Heroes ‘Design-A-Hero’ contest will begin very soon. Design your own fabulously mundane or magnificent champion complete with superpowers and title, and win the chance to see your creation appear in pixelated glory in the final game! Stay tuned for details on how to enter, coming soon.

88 Heroes is a chaotic 2D platformer that is as fun to watch as it is to play, where each level completed or untimely death brings a new uniquely skilled hero into the action. With just 88 minutes to complete all 88 levels, you’ll need every one of the 88 heroes to stop the dastardly Dr. H8 destroying the Earth! Are you up to the challenge?
