Game Announcement - Breath of Death VII: The Beginning Released Today

April 22, 2010

Zeboyd Games is proud to announce that their retro parody RPG, Breath of Death VII: The Beginning was officially released on the XBox 360 Indie Game Marketplace today, April 22, 2010. Created by a team of two (and some talented freelance musicians), Breath of Death VII is a living testament that the power of friendship can conquer any evil (as long as you have enough MP).

"We're big fans of classic console RPGs," said Breath of Death VII designer and programmer, Robert Boyd, "and have been disappointed that this style of games has largely left the home consoles for the portable systems in recent years. Thanks to XBox Live Indie Games, we've been able to bring the genre back to the big screen in all its pixelated glory. Not only that, but the game is only 80 MS points ($1 USD). That's like eighty times cheaper than what these things cost back in the day!"

Official Game Description:

Resurrect the classic era of RPGs with the retro parody RPG, Breath of Death VII: The Beginning. Join Dem the Skeleton Knight and his allies as they explore an undead world in search of the secrets of the past.

4-6 hour quest with multiple game modes&difficulty levels! Fast battles! Frequent LV-Ups! Branching character customization!

Multi-character unite techniques! Glorious retro visuals displayed in awe-inspiring 720p! Laugh! Cry! Laugh some more!
