Battlefield Legend Infinity
A love letter to 8 and 16-bit games of the past, Battle Legend Infinity is a retro-inspired campaign of endurance, strategy, and wits. The game features fast-paced battles in various locales against hordes of enemies inspired by the games of the 80's and 90's. Starring as the heroes of the game, are the five members of Descendants of Erdrick, Austin's premiere video game cover band. To enter the epic battle, players must form a team of three based on each band members' unique fighting, healing and abilities. Once the hero team is formed, players battle through waves of battles and ten levels featuring over 100 enemies to defeat and collect. As the heroes win battles they level up, unlocking new abilities and battlefields.

"One of the biggest challenges in playing a retro role-playing game on-the-go is the time commitment required. Taking cues from great short-burst games like Canabalt and Jetpack Joyride we compressed the experience, focusing on fast paced battles that challenge the player with quick decision making and hero-building, while allowing the game to be consumed in small chunks," says GameTeamOne lead Billy Garretsen. “By teaming with the Descendants of Erdrick—a band that celebrates the games that shaped us all—we were able to put a modern spin on this nostalgic tribute to the 8 and 16 bit era.”
Battle Legend Infinity was developed using GameSalad’s flagship product GameSalad Creator, a powerful game creation and publishing platform that empowers anyone—regardless of technical skill—to design, publish and distribute complex original games, using a visual, drag-and-drop interface that requires no coding. While accessible to everyone, the GameSalad platform has attracted a number of skilled developers who prefer GameSalad to coding because it significantly accelerates the time process of taking a game from concept to market. Once game design is complete, developers can quickly publish their games to a variety of platforms including iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), Mac desktops, or to the Web, using cutting-edge HTML5 technology. The entire process requires only a few clicks of the mouse.
Battle Legend Infinity is now free for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad users running iOS 4.0 and higher. Get it now on the ITunes App Store. Additional platforms will be announced soon. Fans are encouraged to visit the Battle Legend Infinity Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/BattleLegendInfinity

About Descendants of Erdrick
Descendants of Erdrick is a rock band dedicated to recreating classic video game music on real, sweaty instruments from the well-known, time-honored tunes of Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda, to the epic arrangements of Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, with a few obscure tunes in between. Established in 2009 by musicians who grew up with controllers in their hands, later replaced with musical instruments, the band's mission is to convey through performance the excitement they feel for these quality songs. http://www.descendantsoferdrick.com
