AdventureQuest 8-Bit: Dungeons & DoomKnights 

Launching Today on Nintendo Switch & Steam

 

ALBANY, Ore. – Jan. 25, 2024 – A special collector’s edition of the crowdfunded NES classic AdventureQuest 8-Bit: Dungeons & DoomKnights is now available worldwide on Steam and Nintendo Switch. Explore a massively pixelated world and go face-to-face with vampires, ghosts, deathknights, liches, ancient evils, chicken cows, giant flying eyeballs, and more in this humorous take on retro platforming action.

When the young hero, Artix, returns from passing the trials to become a Paladin, he finds his home destroyed by an army of the undead and realizes that his people have disappeared. Artix swears to save them, find the DoomKnight responsible, and ultimately kill it. Will you help Artix defeat the evil undead – or become their new master?
