Indie developer Castle Pixel (Rex Rocket) is moving onto a new project and is looking for funding on Kickstarter. Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is a retro styled action-RPG with a epic tale. The game stars Lily, a young girl listening to an evening story spun by her Grandpa, starring her! Lily’s alter ego is a member of Knights of the Rose on a mission to free the king from an eternal sleep. The game features a mix of randomly generated and pre-designed maps displayed with colourful retro graphics. Gamers looking to relive the nostalgia of early Legend of Zelda titles will feel right at home with Blossom Tales: The Sleepy King.
The developers are turning to Kickstarter to help raise the funds needed to complete development. Castle Pixel is looking to raise $45,000 by October 17th, 2014. If they can raise the money, Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is projected for a December 2015 launch. The game will launch for Windows. Other platforms are not yet planned, but remain a possibility. Check out their Kickstarter and be sure to vote for them on Steam Greenlight.
