Retro-inspired Metroidvania ‘Alwa’s Legacy’ Out Now On Steam and GOG

“This year has been a very strange one, that no one will forget, but I am so proud of the team managing to get over the finish line in these trying times,” says Alwa’s Legacy designer Mikael Forslind.

Alwa's Legacy

 

Alwa’s Legacy, indie developer Elden Pixels’ 16-bit style Metroidvania title and follow-up to 2017’s Alwa’s Awakening, is now available on Steam and GOG.

Alwa’s Legacy once again stars Zoe, who, after saving the land of Alwa in Elden Pixels’ 8-bit homage, Alwa’s Awakening (you can read our review of that one here), awakens to find herself in a strange but familiar land. To make it back home, she must help the residents of this strange land and lift a mysterious curse.

“I’m so excited that we’ve finally managed to finish development on the PC version of Alwa’s Legacy and release it out to the world. This year has been a very strange one, that no one will forget, but I am so proud of the team managing to get over the finish line in these trying times,” said Mikael Forslind, Game Designer for Elden Pixels in a press release distributed today. “We are hopeful that our ode to the Metroidvania genre will bring a smile to players, we have poured our hearts and souls into this to make it the best game it could possibly be.”

Alwa’s Legacy is now available to purchase on Steam and GOG for the budget-friendly price of $17.99. A Switch version of the game will release soon.
