About the game

Fight. Die. Win! (And probably die some more.)

Next Up Hero is a Gauntlet-style dungeon crawler starring hand-drawn heroes that hack, slash, shoot, drum, boomerang, jet, and explode their way through Ventures. Choose your Hero (and/or invite a friend to co-op) and start rolling dungeons, gearing out, and maxing your stats against the vile monsters known as the Ceaseless Dirge.

Key features

  • Dungeon Maker Mode - Craft and create a diabolical venture, and challenge the community to defeat it! 100 levels of darkness? Make it happen! Wager against the community. If you dungeon is defeated in one-live, a rare loot reward goes to the player. If no one can defeat the dungeon, the dungeon maker gets the loot!
  • Mixer Interactive - Enable Interactive while streaming on Mixer, and invite your friends to play alongside you via the browser. Will they control your echo army, leading you to victory? Or will they summon shadows to destroy you?
  • Champion Trials - The toughest ventures yet. Unlocked only when the community has proven it is ready. To have any chance of survival, you must work together as a community to solve puzzles, defeat impossible bosses, and unlock new rewards. You will probably die.
  • Equipment drops, slots and progression overhaul - 2 stacking ability slots, 3 armor slots, and an individual leveling system per character
  • Customized Heroes - Defeat monsters and steal their abilities. Combine monster attacks, character skins, and Ancient abilities for thousands of deadly potential loadouts!
