Listen! The end is nigh!! Hear my words and prepare! An ancient cult has set foot in our lands! They call themselves The Sons of Dawn and pray to some dark elder god. They have started recruiting people for their cause all over the country. I fear that they want to try to awaken something which should be left sleeping. Something dangerous and sinister! Something that might destroy us all. Spend your last of days wisely…

It’s up to you and three heroes of your choice to defend the township of Pixton against the forces of evil. But it’s not all gloom and doom. You’ll be entering a randomized world of hilarious events and off-the-wall NPCs, each with a significant storyline that leads to all kinds of cool stuff! 

There are also…well…thirteen deadly dungeons. Okay, so parts of the game are gloomy and doomy. And oh yeah, you’ll encounter epic boss fights as well.

In Pixel Heroes, no two playthroughs will be the same. Each new game will feature tons of random events, and you’ll be making important choices. You’ll even get to visit a graveyard and learn which choices of your compatriots turned out to be fatal.

Hmmm…I guess I forgot to mention permadeath. Come on…you know you want it. So there it is.

Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic is set for release on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux on February 6, 2015.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
