Naples Florida - July 26th - For immediate release

Vertical Drop Heroes HD - Out on Steam now! 

Nerdook Productions & Digerati Distribution's Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a procedural platformer RPG with rogue-like elements, where your hero adventures vertically through randomly generated stages (think - a down scrolling Rogue Legacy meets Castle Crashers…)  Armed with a variety of skills and traits, you must use your cunning and reflexes to survive the dangers of each stage, until you face the final boss and uncover the truth behind the game!

Game Info

Features randomly generated stages, enemies and bosses, resulting in a highly re-playable game, all coded and drawn by one person in that unique Nerdook style. Bring a friend and try the split-screen local co-op or play multi-player games over a network. Also has full controller support! There are 20 Traits, 15 Abilities and 15 Powers in the game and 16 possible weapons.

After creating a portfolio of 25 flash games, clocking up over 50m million plays worldwide, (with over 25m on Kongregate) and after requests from many fans, Vertical Drop Heroes HD is now a full fat remake of the massively popular original, and launched on Steam on July 25th @ 5pm PST!

Quote from Nerdook 

"Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a labor of love by a one man development team (me)! It's performed really well on GOG and we've averaged reviews of 8/10 which I'm really happy with....and now I can't wait to see how it's received by the community on Steam!"

Steam Edition Includes the following updates!

- Four new language options: Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, German & French! Now you can switch the interface and dialogue to these new languages, with more on the way.

- Ten new enemies, each with a new behaviour and attack pattern! Face the horrifyingly cute Goblin Zombie, avoid the arrows from Skeleton Archers, dodge fireballs from Winged Demons, and more!

- New blocks! Wooden Blocks collapse when burned or if you step on them for too long, Falling Blocks drop you into danger but injure any enemies they fall on, and Bubble Blocks blow bubbles that bounce you to hard to reach locations... or into spikes!

- Steam leader-boards, achievements and statistics! Share your high scores with your Steam friends, and complete various challenges to collect dozens of Steam achievements!
