Gameplay[edit]

Next Up Hero is an action dungeon crawl game video game featuring a cast of eclectic heroes with special abilities who will all take turns trying to conquer tough monsters.

The game is being developed in Unity. Digital Continue was founded by 5th Cell alumnus, Joe Tringali and describes Next Up Hero as an “asynchronous co-op, 2D/3D orthographic projection with isometric angle twin-stick arcade game played on server-hosted sessions".[4]
