The Summer of Greed Draws Near – Kingdom Eighties Rides June 26 on Steam
Experience the free demo for the newest entry in the award-winning micro-strategy series during Steam Next Fest, June 19-26
STOCKHOLM – June 7, 2023 – Get ready to rule this summer! Raw Fury has revealed that Kingdom Eighties, the next standalone game in the award-winning micro-strategy series, will launch on PC via Steam on June 26, 2023. A free demo for the title will be available online for the very first time during Steam Next Fest, from June 19-26.
A stylish new spin on the hit Kingdom franchise, Kingdom Eighties is a single-player love letter to the nostalgic days of summer camps, riding bikes, and sitting around in your pajamas in front of the TV on Saturday mornings. You play as the Leader, a young camp counselor who must protect the town from the relentless attacks of the mysterious Greed. But you won’t be alone! Along the way you’ll find new friends to lend you their skills on your quest: the Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz.
An epic adventure of micro-strategy and base building awaits you! Recruit the neighborhood kids and assign them roles like soldiers and builders, use coins to build and expand your kingdom, and fortify it by raising walls and defensive turrets. Explore your new urban surroundings to unlock mounts, discover mighty weapons and tech upgrades, and manage your resources wisely to survive. But be ready – when night falls, the Greed will attack without mercy. If you lose your crown, the whole town is doomed!
A Kingdom Game for All: Kingdom Eighties builds on the series’ well-known world and mechanics to deliver a new experience that’s perfect for veterans and newcomers alike. Dive deep into Kingdom’s lore with a story that will guide you expertly through the game’s mechanics.
Meet Your Trusty Companions: Join forces with three supporting characters who will lend you their aid on your journey: the Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz. Each one has different abilities you can combine to solve puzzles and progress.
Hit the Streets in Style: Explore new urban locations never before seen in a Kingdom game. Find fresh wheels at the skateboard park, visit the shops on Main Street, and free the New Lands Mall from the Greed.
Summer of Chill: Kingdom’s iconic, handcrafted, pixel-art magic is back with a distinctively ‘80s neon feel. Vibe with an original synthwave soundtrack from Andreas Hald, and travel back to the wonder days of bike rides and summer camp, when anything seemed possible!
Kingdom Eighties is also coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch later this year. The game is available to wishlist now on Steam. For more information, visit the official website.
