In celebration, publisher Headup Games and developer The Bitfather released a comedic making of video for the game:

Headup Games describes Pixel Heroes: Byte and Magic:

Listen! The end is nigh!! Hear my words and prepare! An ancient cult has set foot in our lands! They call themselves -The Sons of Dawn- and pray to some dark elder god. They have started recruiting people for their cause all over the country. I fear that they want to try to awaken something which should be left sleeping. Something dangerous and sinister! Something that might destroy us all. Spend your last of days wisely…“
