London. 1970. It’s the coolest place in the universe. It’s a city that’s changing fast. And that includes crime! A new strain of stop-at-nothing, super-powered criminals is emerging and causing mayhem of a cataclysmic scale. Can anything stop them? It’s unlikely. The golden age of 1960s Superheroes is over. New powers and a ruthless new set of criminals has wiped these fusty old do-gooders off the map. Lots have retired, many are hiding and yet more are dead.

Deadbeat Heroes is a Movement based 3D brawler where you (and a friend) dodge bullets, steal super powers and crack wise. You play as the new wave of ‘Deadbeat Heroes’. Not born with their own powers, they are armed with a prototype super gauntlet - which has the ability to 'borrow' the powers of others. You will (both) vie to win the hearts of the public with your amazing derring do, while not getting shot, sliced, lasered, exploded, vaporized, eaten...
