Digital Continue debuted as a studio in May of 2017 by bringing Lock’s Quest off of the Nintendo DS and onto modern consoles. Originally developed by 5th Cell, the Scribblenauts studio where most of Digital Continue’s staff previously called home, this release was a welcome remake of the cult strategy game. However, this developer isn’t merely a port house, and their first original property is right around the corner. Read on to see how you and 99 of your fellow readers can take part in the ramp up to Next Up Hero‘s Early Access release!

So, what is Next Up Hero? I think Robert Grosso put it best while sampling the game back in August at Play NYC.

The major hook in Next Up Hero is that all dead heroes, both your own and from other players online, leave their “echoes” on the map, giving the player a chance to revive and recruit them to fight for your cause! This can turn the tide in battle, from having these echoes of dead heroes swarming enemies, to using their essence to call upon special abilities or even ally monsters called Ancients, large creatures that deal massive damage or even save you from death.
