Pixel Boy is a top-down dungeon crawler with dynamically generated stages across 25 levels and five acts each with an epic boss. Players can craft custom armours as well as stack and combine power ups into over 6000 different powerful weapons to overcome the dangers of the dungeon.
The quiet homely town of Resolutia is this year's pick for the Giant Box Games Dungeon Runner's World Championships. A peaceful town in which we've taken the liberty of adding some special oomph to, in order to challenge our aspiring adventurers!
Adventurers must be over the age of 13 in order to participate in this high class event of dangerous dungeon exploring! Most adventurers will die in our hand crafted hazardous dungeons but that's okay as we had them all sign release forms.
Today is a special day though; it's the first time in many years that we have had a participant just over the legally mandated age ready to go dungeon-eering. Most are calling him "The Boy". Does he do it for glory? For Family? For Love? Who cares?! We have made sure to equip "The Boy" with the finest Pixel Combat Gear in order for him to have a fair, safe and fun trip into the depths of despair. If he survives long enough he may get to meet our hired heavy hand Cinnamod; the current curator of this year's dungeon based festivities!
Pixel Boy is a dungeon crawling top down Action Shooter. You control Pixel Boy and enter the randomly generated dungeons of Cinnamod. There are five acts in total, each with a powerful boss at their climax. Every dungeon is filled to the brim with aggressive and deadly enemies. As Pixel Boy you will encounter swarms of giant ants, packs of snapping dogs and even lethal dungeon birds. To help Pixel Boy bear this burden there are many tools at your disposal. Various pixel powerups can be found or purchased to help Pixel Boy overcome the treacherous dungeons and tricks of Cinnamod.
Spreadshot, Shields, Splitshot, Heat seekers, Critical Strike Modifiers, Time Stoppers and much more are available. Three pixel powers can be equipped at a time and are stackable AND combinable so that Pixel Boy can find the best combination of over 6000 powers to defeat his adversaries
Various types and tiers of armours can be crafted by obtaining the appropriate armour orbs dropped within the dungeons depths. Each piece of armour has different effects, abilities and levels of power dependent on its tier.
Throughout the dungeon Pixel Boy may encounter a variety of randomly generated unique rooms. Make sure Pixel Boy pockets any keys he finds, as treasure rooms have chests that are always locked to protect their secrets. Be wary every time Pixel Boy moves from room to room, as simply entering a room could trigger a dangerous trap; locking him in the room until every monster has been defeated within. Pixel Boy should also pay close attention to torches as they could lead the way to secrets and treasures. Collect all the coins Pixel Boy finds and spend them on items, powerups and armour at the shops back in town.
Help Pixel Boy in his arduous journey to become the Hero of Resolutia and this year's Dungeon Runner's World Champion!

"Valve’s Greenlight process is a troubled, long, winding road for developers. Only the crème de la crème make it onto Steam’s storefront, and Pixel Boy‘s crème looks delectable. Pixel Boy is a top-down dungeon crawling action shooter with pulsating beats, and a pixelated art style that is alluring and nostalgic. The game looks ripened to be Greenlit. To celebrate their spot at number 69 on Greenlight’s top 100 Giant Box Games, developers of Pixel Boy, have released the third trailer for the game."
