You Are Not the Hero Closes at $90k, Earns Lots of Stretch Goals

you are not the hero art 1

You Are Not the Hero is a game that has definitely gotten some attention in the gaming press, mostly from its bold view on challenging typical JRPG tropes.

You can check out some pre-alpha gameplay below:

Their initial goal was $12K, but they’ve definitely overcome that and acheived most of their stretch goals, which you can see below:

  • Revamped graphics
  • Mac and Linux support
  • Extra Chapter: Petula visits the modern world
  • Extra Chapter: Petula in a horror game
  • Custom collectible costumes for Petula and the heroes
  • Modern world extended, extra gameplay

Unfortunately they didn’t meet their last goal of $100,008, but you could change that.

You can also still pledge towards the game here, on their website, via paypal.
