Next Up Hero - Beta Key Giveaway

968baf4b-f0bc-11e7-b84c-42010af010b1.jpg

Next Up Hero is the first original game from Digital Continue, founded by Joe Tringali, the co-founder of 5TH Cell, creators of Scribblenauts, Lock’s Quest and Drawn to Life.

Next Up Hero is an impossibly-hard 2D action game driven by Community Continue. Inspired by lost childhoods spent at the arcade in which best friends took turns beating unfairly difficult games, Next Up Hero was created so that beating a level is a shared victory and more fun than playing on your own.

Choose from nine Legendary Heroes with an assortment of weapons and abilities to suit your playstyle, from swords and rocket launchers to laser turrets, bongo drums, and boomerangs. When enough heroes have achieved enough feats of greatness, the Champion Trial will be unlocked, the most punishing ventures created by Digital Continue’s own level designers that that require community communication and teamwork if you hope to even stand a chance.

  • Community Continue - Engage in a cutting edge style of cooperative play where beating community ventures is a shared achievement, and more fun than playing on your own.
  • Champion Trials - The toughest ventures yet. Unlocked only when the community has proven it is ready. To have any chance of survival, you must work together as a community to solve puzzles, defeat impossible bosses, and unlock new rewards. You will probably die.
  • Spotlight Ventures and Leaderboards - Compete with the community in daily, weekly and monthly leaderboards! Play in ventures with your favorite streamers, or join celebrities in exclusive VIP ventures!
  • Customized Heroes - Defeat monsters and steal their abilities. Combine monster attacks, character skins, and Ancient abilities for thousands of deadly potential loadouts!
  • Choose Your Own Achievement - Customize your next goal using a Mad Lib style journal system. Complete those goals to earn the Grand Tokens necessary to gain entry into the deadly Champion Trial.


Warning: You’re going to die. A lot. This game is designed to be very hard. But each time you die, you leave behind an echo that can be raised by the next player. The more you die, the more echoes you create, and the stronger we all become.

That’s why we created Next Up Hero, because we believe continuing each other’s games is more fun than playing on our own. It’s a feature we like to call Community Continue. It’s new, it’s weird, and we need your help testing it out.

Soooo, what do you need to do to get a key? Well, just post in this thread and tell us which you think is the best game and why; Scribblenauts, Lock's Quest or Drawn To Life.
The first 10 posts to do this will each receive a key.

  • The beta will run until January 11. At that time...

Scribblenauts is the best because it really brings out the the creative problem solver in you. I really love just typing in whatever I can think of to solve a problem. I also like the mode where you have to do the same stage multiple times using different words. Really great series.

Also it's the only game where I can make an pregnant evil flying gun that gives birth to another evil flying fun

Scribblenauts was amazing, solve many puzzles in both the lazy and most round about ways in that game.

Scribblenauts is the best game because it has many different ways to solve puzzles and you can basically do what ever you want in the New ones. The Wii U version of Scribblenauts Unlimited even had Nintendo Power ups and characters like Mario and Link. The multiplayer is also fun.

Oof too late

I like the artstyle, it remind me a bit of PawaPuro only with out feet so they look a bit creepy.
The game for what i can see is not exactly my cup of the but...maybe when it come to the Switch i will give it a try, just to see if can hit my like list. After all i never like shooter and then Splatoon happen, so i will give it a try.

Scribblenauts is a fun and great game for everyone. It's simple, but still not too easy, and its game mechanics are wonderful and creative, something that we haven't really seen before. Not all puzzle games are executed well, but this one did it in a new and interesting way.

EDIT: RIP, thought I would be fast enough

5WRN3-X0CWJ-RHNTH free key since I totally forgot about the giveaway notification I got last night.

So far I'm enjoying it. It does feel like it was meant to be played with a controller. (There's also a warning that pops up if a controller isn't detected.) Using WASD to change the direction my character is facing rather than where my mouse cursor is kinda threw me off.
