'Kingdom Eighties' Gets PC Release Date, Playable Demo As Part Of Steam Next Fest - Trailer

Kingdom Eighties is a story-driven love letter to 1980s Americana, but still very much a Kingdom game.

Everyone knows the coolest decade was the 1980’s, right? The coolest cartoons, the coolest movies, the coolest TV shows. And Kingdom is the coolest indie strategy series out there. So, how about we put all that cool stuff together…

Kingdom Eighties is a love letter to the nostalgic days of summer camps, riding bikes and sitting around in your pajamas on a Saturday morning in front of the TV.

You play as the Leader, a young camp counselor who must protect the town from the relentless attacks of the mysterious Greed. The neighborhood kids will be at your side, and you’ll also find some new friends along the way: The Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz will lend you their skills and support in battle.

Kingdom Eighties is a newly developed game within the popular Kingdom-series and will surprise experienced players, newcomers to the series, as well as anyone that remembers sitting around in their pajamas on a Saturday morning in front of the television.

Raw Fury revealed that a playable Kingdom Eighties demo will be available for the very first time during Steam's Summer Next Fest, from June 19-26.

Key Features:

  • A Kingdom Game for All: Kingdom Eighties adds a new storytelling approach that builds on the series’ well-known mechanics. Recruit neighborhood kids, assign them roles as builders or soldiers, and expand your territory while uncovering the secrets of your family lineage, the Greed, and the Crown of Creation.
  • 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: Travel to new locations never before seen in a Kingdom game, crafted with the series’ distinctive pixel-art magic. 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 coming to PC (Steam) on June 26, 2023, followed by Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X|S later this year.
