    Lightbulb That’s Artwork From Hero, A Canned Midway Game

    Before Midway collapsed they had a number of in-development games like This is Vegas and a lesser known title simply called Hero.


    Concept art from Hero shows a person armed with a sword in the center of a ruined city. The impressive artwork comes from Stephan Martiniere who worked as a the creative visual director at Midway’s Chicago office for a number of years.

    Martiniere also drafted art for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe including environments for the Special Forces base, Fortress of Solitude, and the Bat Cave.

    Lightbulb Re: That’s Artwork From Hero, A Canned Midway Game

    A couple videos surface for Midway’s canned Hero game



    A couple of videos for Midway’s canceled action game, Hero, have surfaced.

    Hero was designed to be a third-person shooter with fight mechanics. The storyline for the canceled title had a natural disaster killing many folks in the city, and leaving the rest to mod rule essentially.

    To get things under control, a private military group is sent to the city, but more problems arise when the dead begin rising with special mutant powers

    In the first video, a five minute walk-through, it shows you how you could have customized your hero with different powers to combat these undead mutants.

    The second video, shows gameplay, and it looks like it would have been a rather coll title upon completion.

    Phosphor Games, which is comprised of many former Midway staffers and aided in development of Kinect Adventures, appears to have two Hero-like concepts in the works.

    Some of the folks that worked on the game have gone on to create their own studio called Phosphor Games. Currently, the studio is working on a title called Awakening, which looks to have borrowed stuff from Hero, according to Kotaku (the video has been removed).

    It’s also working on 8-bit Death, which is descrived by the studio as a “post retro” mix of “classic and cutting edge” mechanics in a third-person “AAA title” designed for XBL and PSN.
