Retro-Pixel Castles

developed by Raymond Doerr  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux

“A godlike village simulator designed to bridge the gap between the complexities of village simulation with the simplicity of classic 1990s real-time strategy.”

“A major part of the game is village management, and trying to discover new and creative ways to use the tools at your disposal to keep yourself alive as long as possible. In this game, you will lose frequently, but with every failure you learn a little bit more about how to survive, and apply that knowledge to your next attempt.”

Dungeon of Zaar

developed by KURB Studio  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux

“An online turn-based strategy game taking place in an ancient and magical castle where Explorers fight for treasures!

“Players will create their own Dungeon Explorer and take part in intense online battles against other Explorers or play local hot seat mode with their friends around one computer.

“Explorers don’t come alone into the Dungeon. They are the brains, but not the brawn! They are escorted by a squad of Mercenaries recruited from around the Kingdom to protect them and help them forge onward.”

A tactical turn based collectible card game.

“Select from a roster of 100+ battle units and spells, each with different stats and abilities that interact in unique ways during combat. No squad or battle will play out the same.

“The emphasis is on unit positioning, understanding your squad’s capabilities, anticipating your opponent, and maintaining board control. At it’s core, it’s a tactical tabletop board game without all the manual math calculations.”
