Platform, puzzle, and shoot’ em up all the way to victory. See below for more information on how Rogue is having fun with the announcement of Super Mega Zero
April 1, 2022 – LOS ANGELES – Rogue Games, a publisher of innovative and stylish video games, is announcing Super Mega Zero a genre-splitting precision puzzle platformer with shoot ’em up elements. Miss Undefined has been whisked away by the dastardly villain Kill Screen, and it’s up to one Zero to upgrade to Hero and go where no video game character has before: to defeat the Kill Screen. Grab an upgrade and watch Zero switch forms to go from precision platforming to the more puzzle-like action, to Shoot’ em Up gameplay. Super Mega Zero launches on April 21, for Steam, the Epic Game Store, and the Nintendo Switch for $9.99. Pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch are now live at a discounted price of $4.99.
- Challenge hundreds of handcrafted levels with a mix of platforming, puzzles, and shoot ’em up gameplay.
- Classic arcade aesthetics and a banger chiptune soundtrack will bring players back to the 80s.
In the spirit of goofs and gaffs, Rogue has created a fun April Fools Day joke to go along with the announcement, sharing on social channels that Super Mega Zero is the spiritual successor to the never released old arcade-style game, Mega Zero. After being canceled due to a fatal glitch caused by a kill screen bug, a cart of Mega Zero is found, and then later reimagined into Super Mega Zero. Rogue’s blog post about the origin of Mega Zero can be found here.
