SOEDESCO (@SOEDESCO) has teamed up with Australian independent developer Pixel Heart Studio to publish the upcoming Zelda-inspired Airoheart, a pixel art adventure with classic real-time combat created in Unreal
Engine 4. The game has been in development since 2018 and was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2020.
Founded by solo developer Samuel North, Pixel Heart Studio is proud to have Airoheart as their first title and is thrilled about the partnership: “Knowing so many great games to come from SOEDESCO in the past, it was surreal to hear from them. I'm feeling blessed to have partnered up and to work with their lovely team behind the scenes."
Airoheart, a 16-bit style indie Adventure Game
Airoheart adapts both the deep and emotional storytelling of the Final Fantasy series, as well as the style and charm of the early Legend of Zelda series. From the much-cherished top-down pixel perspective title of the mid-90s, it features old-school real-time combat, puzzles and platforming sequences in a huge open world.
Our main campaign goal, will enable us to release on Windows and Mac, but with continued support we will be able to release it on other favourite platforms such as the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox!

NeocoreGames (@NeocoreGames) announced that the full release date of its upcoming tactical-RPG King Arthur: Knight's Tale (@KnightsTaleGame) has been moved from 15 February to 29 March, 2022 on Steam. The game will be available for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 at a later date.
Set in a dark fantasy world based on the Arthurian myth (and our previous King Arthur strategy games), this Tactical / RPG hybrid begins right after the famous battle of Camlann, with a twist:
You are Sir Mordred, the nemesis of King Arthur, the former black knight of the grim tales. You killed King Arthur, but with his dying breath, he struck you down. You both died – and yet, you both live.
The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the mystical island of Avalon brought you back to end a true nightmare. She wants you to go on a knightly quest. She wants you to finish what you have begun. Kill King Arthur – or whatever he has become after she took his dying vessel to Avalon.
While the delay is a small one, NeocoreGames is confident that the extra weeks of development and polish will help to deliver the strongest possible version of King Arthur: Knight's Tale for its fans.
