VIDEO GAMES ARE DEAD. SEND HELP. OVERVIEW Join a raccoon and a llama in their quest to save videogames as we know them! SuperEpic is a Metroidvania style action-adventure game filled with humour and satire. The gameplay is nonlinear and fast-paced, with exploration and combo-based combat being the weapon of choice against the evil RegnantCorp! FEATURES Classic story-driven mode with handcrafted levels and multiple endings Gorgeous 16/32 bit era cartoon sprites RPG like weapon and armor upgrading system, with tonnes of items to collect and discover Extensive combo-based combat system An unlockable procedural "roguelite mode" Optional cross media content Fast paced non-lineal exploration STORY The year is ​2084​. After a series of mergers, buyouts and hostile takeovers, ​only one videogame development company is left ​in the world: ​RegnantCorp​. A huge enterprise ran by a sounder of greedy piggies. All the fun in video games has been replaced with intrusive addiction algorithms used to control people’s minds​ and behaviour. But not all of the world’s inhabitants are under the control of the evil corporation… A rebellion of game enthusiasts have warded off the hoofed-grip of RegnantCorp, by ​replacing their software with classic games​. Titles from past times, which have long been forbidden and are now praised as relics. Following a distress signal captured through an antiquated game console, ​Tan Tan and his valiant llama steed Ola prepare to take on RegnantCorp and confront the pigs... GAMEPLAY The finest quality ingredients can be found in this Metroidvania! A large interconnected world to explore and unlock, a responsive customizable action-set for combat and an in-game economy-based upgrading system. Unlock and enhance weapons and abilities for both our courageous heroes, Tan Tan the Raccoon and Ola the Llama. Up to three weapons can be equipped simultaneously to provide a range of unique directional attacks. More powerful abilities are executed by inputting a specific sequence of keys... Just like the old days!

While it makes a point of poking fun at the state of the games industry, SuperEpic is also a lot of fun to play.

To succeed as a Metroidvania, a game has to set itself apart from the rest. SuperEpic’s second-screen mini-game approach is not only an innovative concept, it helps underline the satirical conceit the game’s story lays out. Even with its shallow combo-based combat system, there’s plenty here for fans of the genre to enjoy.

SuperEpic's satirical style might not be for everyone, but if you are OK with that aspect then this is an excellent addition to the ever growing Metroidvania genre. Graphics, soundtrack, and gameplay fit together beautifully, making SuperEpic difficult to put down.

I’ve had a lot to complain about, but SuperEpic is still quite fun to play, and I never found it difficult to keep coming back to fight and explore the twisting halls of RegnantCorp.
