Retro-Pixel Castles is a brutal village/town simulator with RPG and roguelike elements. Some Key Features: You CAN'T win! Yeah, that's right. Not being able to win is a feature! Survival. In Castles, you'll find yourself in a harsh and unforgiving environment, constantly trying to find new ways to keep your little villagers alive for just a few more days. Build a village... A major part of the game is village management, and trying to discover new ways to keep yourself alive as long as possible. Huge, hand crafted maps! Each map is 512x512 tiles wide, leaving tons of space to play on. Built-in map editor. Included in the game engine itself is a very robust, feature filled map editor. The game will be released completely DRM free, and all content created for the game will come with your initial purchase. There will be absolutely no paid DLC and tons of free content patches!
