In Command Heroes, you control a Hero from one of many Factions in the game each with unique abilities, equipment, and perks to unlock. Battle it out in a mash-up between a twin-stick action platformer & RTS blend. Unlock new units, weapons, buildings, & equipment. Upgrade your crew between matches, and press onward towards victory! Team up with up to 3 friends for 4-player split-screen action, or set up a custom sandbox map with up to 10 players & AI.


Each faction has diverse units, buildings, weapons, and heroes. Shift and shape your strategy accordingly. Surprise your enemies with unlimited play-style approaches. Will you attack from above, below, or both? Whether you approach with style & finesse or overwhelm by brute force, you’ll be faced with new challenges and find new strategies each match.

1-10 Multiplayer Co-op or Versus

Play solo, or with 1-4 local players (or online players via Remote Play Together) in a hectic resource race. Set up custom matches with full flexibility on team alliances between players & AI. Up to 10 players & AI total.

Game Modes:

Embark on a rogue-like run, with limited crew and starting equipment. Grow in power, level up, and recruit (or lose - sad face) crew members as you progress and face mini-bosses. Customize, swap, and upgrade equipment for your hero and crew between missions.

Survival Mode
Fend off waves of enemies with a brief respite to repair & build. Team up with other players to survive together. How many waves can you survive? Try to beat your personal best.

Set up sandbox matches for 1-4 players, against 0 - 7 enemy AIs. Fully configure team alignments, factions, and various other match settings & environmental factors.

Capture the Flag
Capture the enemy team's flag(s) and protect your own! A throwback to classic arena fighters.

And more to come!
