Ah, to be an 80s kid again
Kingdom Eighties: Summer of Greed was previously announced for Switch, and it’s coming sometime in 2023. Today brings us a new trailer for the title and you can check it out above.
It was supposed to be a summer camp like any other: fresh air, a change of scenery, friendly new faces, everything you’ve been looking forward to after a long year. Then again, anything would be better than staying at home and hearing your parents argue day in and day out.
Yeah, that’s what you thought. Because a few days in, you’ve started to hear weird sounds after dusk, and seeing strange odd shapes with… glowing scarlet eyes?
Kingdom Eighties: Summer of Greed is a new and standalone title in the award-winning micro-strategy series, Kingdom. A love letter to the nostalgic days of bike riding, summer camps, and sitting around in your pajamas on a Saturday morning in front of the TV. You play as The Leader, a young camp counselor who’ll have to protect their family and the entire town from the relentless attack of the mysterious Greed. The young neighbourhood kids will be at your side, and you’ll also find some new friends along the way: The Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz will lend you their skills and support in battle.
What is the secret of the Crown of the Creation, and why are the Greed trying to steal it? New and returning Monarchs: Grab your bikes and get ready for a Summer of Greed!
A Kingdom Game for Veterans and Newcomers
Building upon the well-known mechanics in the Kingdom series, Kingdom Eighties: Summer of Greed adds a new storytelling approach. Recruit the neighborhood kids and assign them roles as builders or soldiers, and expand your territory while uncovering the secrets of your family lineage, the Greed, and the Crown of Creation.
Kingdom Eighties: Summer of Greed is the story of four unlikely heroes and their friendship. You are The Leader, and the fate of the town rests on your shoulders, but you don’t have to bike alone: The Champ, The Tinkerer and The Wiz will join your band and help you in the fight with their unique abilities.
