Pixelated chivalry?! Joust your way to the top in this medieval RPG. A Knight’s Tale with pixels.
Welcome to the world of pixelated chivalry, where your courage, reflexes and fame propel you to reach the dream of every self-respecting knight.
You’ll travel to Pixelville to fulfill your greatest dream and to marry the beautiful young princess Arianna Annabelle di Grandigund Hyacinthe. To do this you must prove yourself a capable horseman by winning the King’s championship tournament which involves defeating those recognized as the unbeatable knights of the realm, "The Big 5".
According to the King, "whoever manages to defeat them in combat will be a good suitor for his daughter!"
This is an epic adventure with a medieval ambient and the exciting world of chivalry, where you must acquire new and increasingly better equipment to achieve your mission. Raise money by winning jousts organized at the local tavern, then spend that money at the Shop and the Forge to upgrade your armor, weapons and magical potions. You can gain discounts on many of the items by performing well in the mini-games, which include hammering steel, quality checking potions and racing your horse.
As a simple but alluring pixel art style is being used, players can add their own designs to the game! Create your own heraldry, customize your horse and design new armor to intimidate your foe. The hope is that each player can feel like they have a unique character.
Pixelry will be going to Kickstarter to find further funding so that the full release version can be realized as soon as possible. Everyone who purchases the alpha version will receive the full version when it becomes available.
Here's a list of what the developers hope to add in the 'free' update called Pixelry Champions:
The features that make it into the final release version of Pixelry depend on the amount of funding received during the Kickstarter/IGS game sale, but here's the full wishlist:
New Engine: Pixure (create your own knight) Gender options Mac/Android/iOS release More and fresher music and art Full horse care considerations Squire System Multiplayer (trading, global leagues) More in-depth storyline Edit your own home More mini-games Special events are more exciting Detailed inventory system Mouse support Fix resolutions

A special perk will be given to the top 3 contributors! If you are one of the top Pixelry lovers André himself will draw a caricatured pixel masterpiece of a picture you like or a knight you design.
