Game Information

Available on:PCJul 10, 2017

Developer: Tim Conkling

Publisher: Versus Evil

Genre: Strategy

RUN A THIEVES' GUILD IN A GAS-LIT VICTORIAN CITY.

Antihero is a fast turn-based strategy game with an (Oliver) Twist. Recruit street urchins, hire thugs, start a gang, upgrade your guild, steal everything... and bribe, blackmail, and assassinate your way to victory. Includes a story-driven campaign, AI skirmishes, and intense online and offline PvP.

• ONE GOAL. MANY FOES. Play through the story-driven campaign, skirmish against the AI, and jump online in casual and ranked PvP multiplayer.

• CHALLENGE YOUR FRIENDS. Invite friends to play asynchronously or increase the pressure in a Live Match. Set up custom “House Rules” and tailor the game to your tastes!

• TAKE OVER THE CITY. PROTECT WHAT’S YOURS. Infiltrate businesses, sneak into estates, set traps, and steal everything. The city’s riches are yours – if your opponent doesn’t take them first.

• SNEAKERY, STABBERY & SKULLDUGGERY! Upgrade your guild, recruit street urchins, hire thugs, start a gang… and bribe, blackmail and assassinate the opposition. There are many paths to the top.

• MANAGE A HEALTHY ECONOMY. Spend your ill-gotten riches to hire new recruits, upgrade your thieving skills, and acquire deadly weapons. Gold is a thief’s best friend!

• RISE TO THE TOP. See how you rank among all Master Thieves in the in-game leaderboards.

Like a board game you play to death then put on the shelf to bring out on special occasions, but with street urchins and priest-stabbing.

A very different kind of turn-based game, that proves multiplayer action doesn't have to involve first person shooting.

Anyone who is a turn based strategy game fan should be checking out Antihero, which deserves to find an audience so that its multiplayer base can flourish. This is a game that is easy to learn with a campaign that teaches you all the basics, but it can then throws a number of challenging scenarios at you. Antihero is a game that offers something a little different in the strategy genre, that's easy to learn before throwing some challenging scenarios at you, and is genuinely fun to play.
