Castle Pixel, the indie devs behind challenging and fast-paced action-platformer Rex Rocket, are developing Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, which is shaping up to be quite the high-quality retro action-RPG experience. Having been already compared to the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, arguably the gold standard for SNES-era RPGs, it’s no wonder we’re so excited.
Blossom Tales follows Lily on her quest as a recently inducted Knight of the Rose to save her cursed king from an evil wizard. Along the way, she’ll gain friends, weapons, spells, abilities and tons of treasure.
$10 nets you a copy of the game, while $20 (only 44 left before it goes up to $25!) nets you both Blossom Tales and Rex Rocket. If you need a new, heavily inspired game with a retro-feel, this is where to find it.
