Side-scrolling combat-RPG ‘Pharaonic’ and action adventure puzzler ‘The Girl and the Robot’ hit shelves this Friday
Last year, SOEDESCO Publishing was responsible for a third of the increase in physical released games in the US. With the boxed release of side-scrolling combat-RPG Pharaonic and action adventure The Girl and the Robot, SOEDESCO adds another two boxed titles to their line-up. As of Friday, both games will be available for PlayStation® 4. Pharaonic also has a boxed Xbox One version.
“Offering indie developers the possibility to give their game a boxed release is what makes SOEDESCO unique as a publisher. We are aware of trends and have moved into the digital space as well, but we know that there is a lot of life left in boxed releases,” says SOEDESCO’s Executive Manager, Hans van Brakel.
Players can customize their characters in this brightly colored, Egyptian themed, Dark Souls-like game. They can even choose if they want to play as a male or a female character. Once in the game, there are many pieces to mix, match and collect to suit the player’s playstyle. From light armor and weapons for quick combat to heavy gear and two-handed axes for devastating attacks. It’s up to the player to gear themselves in the way that fits their playstyle best. Pharaonic is developed by Spanish developer Milkstone Studios.
The Girl and the Robot’s two-sided gameplay
