These new characters are effectively alternate reality versions of previously playable heroes, including: the blue, green, pink and orange archer.

Follows of the industry might recognise the new blue archer as they’re loosely based off “feminist games critic Anita Sarkeesian” The developer said ” Anita’s work has been an inspiration to the TowerFall team. Her “Tropes vs Women in Games” video series gave us a valuable new lens through which to assess our character designs. TowerFall is about bringing people together, so it’s vitally important that the cast of playable characters makes everyone feel invited to join in”.
