Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is an old-school, top-down indie adventure game in the style made classic by Legend of Zelda and other early adventure titles. Instead of playing Link, the Hero of Time, you play as Lily, Knight of the Rose. You are pledged with saving the Kingdom of Blossom from eternal darkness by slicing and dicing your way through dangerous dungeons. Check out the PC announcement trailer below:

The story of Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King unfolds in the form of a story told from grandfather to grandchildren.

“Unable to resist their adorable plea, the old storyteller weaves a tale in which Lily, a heroic girl becomes one of the esteemed Knights of the Rose. However, that same day the evil wizard Crocus places the King into an everlasting sleep with one of his dreaded spells, forcing Lily to go on a grand quest in search of a remedy.

“Drawing inspiration from the beloved top-down adventure games we grew up with, Blossom Tales is a refreshing combination of classic Action-RPG gameplay and modern design. Players can expect a one-of-a-kind experience as they explore hand-crafted dungeons. The young Lily and her brother Chrys will also keep players on their toes by occasionally introducing enemies, story events, and more as they help their Grandpa tell the tale.

“Featuring a vibrant world to get lost in, challenging quests to complete, and memorable characters to meet, our hope is for players to feel as though they've been transported back to the glorious days when pixelated visuals and chiptune music captivated us for hours on end.”
