Developer Elden Pixels has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of Alwa’s Legacy, a “modern retro game” followup to the 2017-released Alwa’s Awakening. The studio is seeking SEK 250,000 (approx. USD $25,936) in funding for release on Switch and PC via Steam and GOG in spring 2020, followed later by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Kickstarter campaign:
Alwa’s Legacy is set in the world of Alwa and the game will start with the heroine Zoe waking up in a strange land. She doesn’t know where she is and she doesn’t know what land this is but for some strange reason everyone and everything seems very familiar. It’s like she’s been here before, but can’t remember. Why is this?
Suddenly a figure appears, an old lady almost struggling to walk comes up and talks to Zoe. Her voice is strong and she says: “Zoe, you have been sent here to save us. You might not yet realize it but you are strong and you’ll grow to be the hero we need. Quickly, make your way to the Town of Westwood and come find me. There I’ll share more…”
In Alwa’s Legacy you use your magic staff to move across the land, you’ll solve puzzles, traverse through dangerous dungeons and defeat many enemies along your journey to save the land of Alwa. We have striven to create a main protagonist that’s relatable, strong and with great movement skills. It’s a breeze to swiftly make your way through the game. Exploration and freedom are other design pillars we had and in Alwa’s Legacy you’ll find an adventure that’s fun to play, exciting to explore and discoverable in your own way!
