A small but epic kickstarter project caught my attention this week so I’ve decide to bring it to you. Guardians of the Rose is a beautiful 2d 16 bit game made by Pixel x Pixel Game inspired by old school classic like Zelda & Gauntlet. It’s integrate RPG element of the elder scroll series while having a polish 16bit style.
The illegal art of Witchcraft has tainted the Royal Guard and brought ruin upon the kingdom. A small group of the Royal Guard has slaughtered the King’s family and taken control of the kingdom. It is now up to you and a small group of members of the Royal Guard that calls themselves the Guardians of the Rose to save the kingdom. Your small band of allies has to work together in secret to cause a revolution in the kingdom. One slip up and you will be on the run from the Royal Guard and wanted by relentless bounty hunters.
And you, a boy with no magical ability, are left with the task to save the kingdom. Will you choose to taint yourself with witchcraft or will you choose to search out legendary magical items to use in your struggle to save the kingdom? Explore the Unfellable Forest while avoiding being trampled by Sand Giants and Unfellable Beasts. Fight off sea serpents and other creatures of the deep that are terrorizing sea port towns. Venture into the snow-ridden Mountain Lands and discover hidden temples in the wild forests.
I can’t wait to see the game in action. With an open ended world to explore, multiple way to complete game and alternate ending, it’s looks like it will have a lot of replay value. Transport yourself in a grandiose fight of magic vs witchcraft.
The kickstarter projet started recently and is only missing 5000$ to hit its goal. Hopefully we can all help a bit. So if you like what you see pledge and share it to your friends.
