The creators of Trine have revealed a new game called Has-Been Heroes, and it will focus on a group of over the hill adventurers called back for one last quest. The game will take the standard fantasy archetypes of warrior, monk, and others, and put them in a roguelite, action-strategy game.
We only have the announcement trailer, but we hope to see plenty of the characters saying, “I’m getting too old for this”, and hearing, “I was only a week from retirement”, if they are killed. At the end of every chapter, maybe we will hear the medieval equivalent of a sad saxophone.
After being out of the limelight and living a peaceful life, do they still have what it takes to succeed? We will find out when the game launches in March. There will be a digital release, but it looks like the physical release will only be available at Gamestop. If you buy it physically, give yourself enough time.
We sometimes link to online retail stores. If you buy something from our links, we may make a small commission which goes towards keeping the lights on and coffee in the pot.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
