Pixel Boy is a top-down dynamic dungeon crawler built by a two man development team across oceans from each other.
Pixel Boy is a randomly generated game where the player must use special pixel power ups to defeat the 25 levels and 5 giant boss encounters. The pixel power ups can be combined and stacked with one another for over 6000 possible weapon combinations. A variety of different styles and tiers of armor can be crafted using orbs obtained within the dungeon. Each armor gives Pixel Boy varying effects and abilities. Many different monsters lurk in the shadows, each with a different way to kill Pixel Boy.
Pixel Boy is set to be released Q1 2014 for PC, Mac, and Linux Platforms.
Giant Box Games was started by David Nickerson from Vancouver Canada and Dominic Obojkovits from Cape Town South Africa. They met in an indie forum and began developing Pixel Boy through solely through Google Hangouts. They just recently met each other in person for the first time at rAge Expo in SA after over a year of development. Luckily they still like each other too.
