Every now and then a game pops up in the sea of clones and generic mechanics, stands up tall, and exclaims ‘I am indie, I don’t give a f@#k’.
VHS Story is this kind of game. It is ballsy, risky, hard hitting.
Video Hero Super Story (VHS Story) is a strategy / tycoon / streetfighter-manager game with 80-90s atmosphere, nostalgia and lots of games/movies references.
You have to manage your time and money to improve your fighter skills on one side and your training equipment on the other. You will start as an unknown fighter in the underground club and must work your way to the top and solve the mystery from your past.
Improve your characteristics, learn new fight moves and unlock new abilities in the skill tree. Make your setup for every fight to suit the particular situation and opponent.
Choose your way wisely. Every decision matters. You can be a super-hero, a criminal or waste your life watching TV, or even run your own gym.
The game is a mix of a non-linear storyline, a tycoon-like gameplay, RPG elements and a tactical fight.
The game is currently in Alpha release on Steam.
This is really one of those cases where the screenshots speak for themselves, I mean holy crap, I’m so impressed that somebody made this. And on behalf of Indie Game Buzz and the wider Indie community, I must say thank you to Lazy Bear Games (formally Game Jam Studio) for the effort being put into this project. It really is something special.
