Dungeon of Nazarick | Stuck Between Guards

In order to help showcase Pixel Game Maker MV, two trial games were made, Dungeon of Nazarick and Steel Sword Story. Dungeon of Nazarick is based on the anime Overlord, where you are a top-notch adventurer exploring a recently discovered tomb. The other game, Steel Sword Story, was actually made by the creators of 1001 Spikes, where it stars Rufus, where he was expected to become a fine knight but was branded a traitor for a crime he didn’t commit. It should be noted Dungeon of Nazarick is available for download but Steel Sword Story will be at Tokyo Game Show.

The game creation software itself also received an update, such as adding simplified Chinese and an open beta.


Pixel Game Maker MV

Pixel Game Maker MV is a type of game creation software that lets you easily create your very own original action games, without any sort of programming skills or specialized knowledge whatsoever. The action games you can create are limited only by your imagination.

The ability to use original materials and resources for character animations, background maps, sound, etc., allows you to create truly unique games.

Dungeon of Nazarick – Based on the hit anime Overlord

The trial version of Dungeon of Nazarick, the original action game created using Pixel Game Maker MV, is now available. In this trial version, you can play all the way through the first stage.
The trial version is available for download now, so be sure to give it a try!

Explore a forgotten mysterious tomb!
A mysterious tomb has been discovered on the outskirts of the Re-Estize Kingdom. As a top-notch adventurer, you’ve received an obscene amount of money to explore and inspect said tomb. Keeping your wits on high alert, you take your first step into the tomb. Thus begins a terrifying ordeal from which only death itself could possibly save you…

Steel Sword Story – From the creators of 1001 Spikes

The trail version of Steel Sword Story, a side-scrolling action platformer developed by 8bits Fanatics (creators of 1001 Spikes) in Pixel Game Maker MV, is available to play at Tokyo Game Show this weekend. In this trial version, you can play through the beginning section of the game.
Full game coming soon!

The traitor Rufus has pushed the kingdom to the brink of total destruction.
Now, a man who was once expected to become an elite Imperial Knight – but who was forced into exile for a crime he didn’t commit – has come to help.
Having lost his status, his honor, and the woman he loves, and with nothing left but a shabby, old steel sword, Azul the Swordsman alone stands up to take on the peril awaiting his former kingdom…
Get ready for some swords, magic, and fantasy-style side-scrolling action!
