- Heroic Hustle was designed from the ground up to be a truly cooperative experience that encourages players to work with one another instead of against one another.
- Heroic Hustle is designed to be family friendly, with gameplay that encourages using problem solving skills, strategy, and teamwork.
- Although it's accessible to many ages, its adaptability and alternate difficulties can still provide a unique challenge even to experienced players.
- Believing that bravery is found in everyone, Heroic Hustle reflects a diverse cast showcasing heroes of all races, genders, and orientation.
- Heroic Hustle is based on the webcomic Wootlabs, and like the comics, the game embraces the lighthearted side of heroes and puts an emphasis on humor, charm, and fun.
Cascade City, widely regarded as the city most likely to come under the attack of a giant otter with a giant laser attached to its giant head. Every other week there's something new trying to destroy the city: ancient magicians, gangster mummies, and good old fashioned mad scientists lurk around every corner. There's no end to the parade of crazed villainy that roosts in this fair city, but thankfully help is on the way!
Fortunately, Cascade City is home to a diverse assortment of courageous protectors. From the eccentric and erratic Woot Family to the ragtag members of the Cascade Irregulars, for every bad guy rising up in the city there's a hero waiting to sock them in the jaw. In Heroic Hustle, you and your friends lead this coalition of champions against the forces of evil!
Heroic Hustle is a fully cooperative team-based experience for 2-4 players. The superheroes (that's you), lead the other heroes of the city into battle to protect a city on the edge of destruction.
A wide range of threats will endanger the city every round, and it's up to the players to nullify them before they can launch an attack. By pairing up your heroic strengths to the weaknesses of your enemies, you'll be able to arrest the attacking forces.
These threats are only the first layer of danger, though. There's always a supervillain in the background working against Cascade City throughout the entire game. Even worse, the more progress you make towards foiling their schemes, the angrier the supervillain gets, and the more dangerous they become.
As if all of that wasn't enough to keep your heroic hands busy, plot twists will change the way the game is played from round to round. One round might see the villains sporting shiny new weapons, while in the next your entire team might be turned into gorillas! As the supervillain's master plan unfolds, these dynamic events will force your team to work together and adapt your strategies.
Thankfully, your elite team has plenty of resources to combat these threats. Some of the heroes in your team work better with each other and can join forces for massive, game-changing unite attacks! You can even summon entire supergroups to show the villains what havoc really means! Not only that, but the denizens of Cascade City are ready to fight for their homes. Whether it's the plucky news team alerting the populous of danger, the tireless repair crews rebuilding the city after vicious attacks, or the dashing Kelly Courier who risks life and limb to help your team get to where they need to be. And if all else fails, each player has their own special superpowers that they can unleash when the situation is dire!
The core game includes everything needed for a four player co-op experience, with potential to be enhanced with expansions later on down the line. The rules can also be toyed with to make the game more difficult, or to lessen the challenge when playing with younger players. It's important to save Cascade City, but it's more important that everyone has fun doing it!
Thanks for your interest in Heroic Hustle!
Risks and challenges
This is our first project, and we're a two person team. Despite that, we're both highly dedicated to the project and have done extensive work on playtesting and designing it. The game itself is complete. The funds from the Kickstarter will be used to finalize art, and for printing costs to produce the physical copies of the game.
The greatest risks include possible production delays or printing complications since this is our first outing into the industry, and potential supervillain plots to thwart the completion of this game. (If someone hijacks a giant laser to fire at the moon, we are both completely unprepared to handle such a circumstance. Maybe our cats can handle it, who knows. They're pretty rad.)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
