Underhero is an RPG-platformer where the chosen hero has failed, and an underling of the evil king takes his place as the new hero.

Become the new hero

Underhero is a 2D side-scroller RPG adventure game with timing-based combat. It tells an intriguing and mysterious story, full of silly characters brimming with personality, quirky dialogue, and lots of weird humor.

Inspired by Paper Mario games and RPGs in general, it tells the story of a world where the chosen hero has failed and an underling of the main villain takes his place as the new “hero”. Join Elizabeth IV and a little Masked kid in a journey across the Chestnut Kingdom to once again, defeat the evil Mr. Stitches! Meet friends, foes and other weird characters in the mysterious world of Underhero.

…Wait, once again!?



The Underhero soundtrack is a seamless blend of chiptune and modern instruments. Composed by the amazing Stijn van Wakeren, the music changes dynamically and flows with gameplay.


What’s up with that name? Is this a fan game? Does this have anything to do with that other game?

Underhero is a completely original game and its name comes from combining “Underling” and “hero”.  It has no relation with other games that contain “Under” in their name!
