What seems like a typical bank heist reveals itself to be just the tip of a much more sinister plan! Create your hero, lead your team, and save the world!

Customize your Hero!

Choose your character’s backstory, personality, power source, and archetype. Of course, each of these aspects heavily impacts your final character. Heroes have “stances” that provide boosts to certain stats like enhanced dodging or even flight. These, along with powerful sets of abilities and can be fully customized to fit your playstyle.

Game Mechanics

Swapping stances between rounds allow you to prepare for upcoming challenges. As the game progresses, you’ll unlock more abilities and stances. Heroes have special support actions. And, enemies can create formidable squads with even more powerful attacks and dynamic combos. The Vigilance and Support systems allow characters to react despite not being their turn. This could lead to hero trying to stay in cover or counter-attacking when an active enemy moves or performs an action.
