Pixel Boy Has Been Greenlit
At rAge this year, we had the chance to meet and talk to the dev team Giant Box Games, compromising of Dominic Obojkovits and David Nickerson, about their game Pixel Boy. We, at eGamer, have just received some amazing news that Pixel Boy has been greenlit through Steam Greenlight, and therefore will be debuting on Steam in the near future, which is possibly an early 2014 release.
If you don’t recall what Pixel Boy is about, here is a summary from their Greenlight page:
- GTA V Cracked Open For Modding Despite Rockstar’s Best Efforts To Prevent It | 4 days ago
- AMD And Nvidia Develop The Nvideon R9 Titan Red VR For Half Life 3 | 3 weeks ago
- Nintendo Confirms Pokémon MMO Coming This Year | 3 weeks ago
- Review: Battlefield Hardline Plays Well, Resonates Horrifically | 3 weeks ago
Pixel Boy is a top-down dungeon crawler with dynamically generated stages across 25 levels and five acts each with an epic boss. Players can craft custom armours as well as stack and combine power ups into over 6000 different powerful weapons to overcome the dangers of the dungeon.
Pixel Boy is a brilliant South African indie game that deserves all the attention it gets. From what we saw at rAge and played, we left feeling immensely impressed and proud at the calibre and talent of South African devs. With Broforce and Desktop Dungeons, Pixel Boy can be added to the list of South African indie games making their mark. The eGamer team would like to congratulate Dave and Dominic on their immense success and wish them the best for the future. We look forward to more news and developments from Giant Box Games, and we can’t wait to play Pixel Boy upon release.
At the moment, Pixel Boy is available for pre-order through the Humble Store, and you can pre-order by following this link.
