Pay What You Want For Pixelry On Indie Game Stand!
Pixelry is the latest game to be promoted via Indie Game Stand, which means for the next 4 days it is available at a price of your choosing! As part of the promotion, we have decided to donate 10% of all proceedings to Open Source Ecology. Pixelry is available as a DRM-free download for Windows that can be redeemed on Desura.
Purchasing Pixelry from Indie Game Stand during this promotion will net you the version we refer to as Pixelry Classic, which is the alpha version of the game. We’ll be heading to Kickstarter in March to find funding to flesh the game out as Pixelry Champions. Everyone who purchases Pixelry Classic will receive Pixelry Champions at no extra cost as soon as it becomes available.
What is Pixelry?Pixelry is a medieval themed RPG with big pixels and a focus on jousting. You’ll travel to Pixelville to fulfill your greatest dream and to marry the beautiful young princess Arianna Annabelle di Grandigund Hyacinthe. To do this you must prove yourself a capable horseman by winning the King’s championship tournament which involves defeating those recognized as the unbeatable knights of the realm, “The Big 5”.
According to the King, “whoever manages to defeat them in combat will be a good suitor for his daughter!”
This is an epic adventure with a medieval ambient and the exciting world of chivalry, where you must acquire new and increasingly better equipment to achieve your mission. Raise money by winning jousts organized at the local tavern, then spend that money at the Shop and the Forge to upgrade your armor, weapons and magical potions. You can gain discounts on many of the items by performing well in the mini-games, which include hammering steel, quality checking potions and racing your horse.
