Gauntlet of Power is the 3rd game in the Heroes of Loot series, and also marks OrangePixel’s 20 year anniversary. OrangePixel is the brainchild of solo developer Pascal Bestebroer, an indie game developer since 2004 being responsible for game series like: Gunslugs, Space Grunts, Heroes of Loot, Residual, Ashworld and many others released on almost all platforms

“I often feel like David versus Goliath.” said Pascal Bestebroer. “My games are built on a low, or better described as “no”, budget! And I have to release these games in the same pond as the AAA million dollar budget games, but also the more recent “indie” games that easily have 100k in marketing spend, a publisher backing it and a full promotional team to support the development team of 10 or 20 people.

With a total “development and marketing” budget of less than $10k, Gauntlet of Power is a powerful reminder of the resilience and ingenuity of true independent developers. 

 “Fighting for attention and the player’s time is a battle with every new game I release on every platform I release, but I’m confident that this new game is once again going to find a nice spot in the pond and slowly grow a following over the next two decades like the previous titles in the series did.”

The player feedback from last week’s Steam Next Fest demo, and Gauntlet of Power topping Steam’s “Popular upcoming releases” list prior to launch is an indicator that things might just work out on this one!
