SHENZEN, CHINA (October 26, 2023) - Today, indie game publisher IndieArk is excited to announce that Strike Force Heroes, a classic arena shooter rebuilt with modern mechanics, releases on Windows PC via Steam on November 10. Created by a two-person development team at Sky9 Games, Strike Force Heroes melds over-the-top action with epic storytelling in an intense remake of the hit Flash game from 2012.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign last year and recently named as one of the most played demos at Steam Next Fest, Strike Force Heroes is back as an all-new game, thoughtfully recreated for the modern day.
