The Legena series was a long term project to understand programming when it first started. Over time it became the key focus of programming experience due the amount of work required in a role playing game. Since then, it has become an engine for developing Grandpa Pixel’s RPG’s as an RPG series.

The main goal is to increase the quality of the series. Such as improving the soundtrack. Giving each game its very own soundtrack, set the right mood and feel to each experience. The first goal focuses on giving Union Tides the final extended soundtrack. After that, Grandpa Pixel will focus on bringing Legena to as many platforms and giving War Bred Children and Alley Girls the soundtracks they truly deserve! We want to bring the following to the Legena series.

  • A Fully Extended Soundtrack to all three games (Focusing on the 1st game first)
  • Linux, Mac, iPhone and iPad Support
  • The Battle Arena, Boss Rush Mode & The Gauntlet

The Battle Arena: Calling all heroes! In celebration of the Union Tides festival, the Battle Arena is open for one month only. Take on deadly foes and receive wondrous prizes! Test your strength and wits as you take on new challenges ranging from No-Items to the Lighting-Round!

The Gauntlet: In the dark depths of the Battle Arena, a gauntlet can be found. Built for the strongest of champions, endure multiple handicaps and journey to the bottom of the Gauntlet and battle the Titans. Dare you try your luck in the Gauntlet?

In the event that Legena: Union Tides surpasses its  goals, Grandpa Pixel can pop the champagne and start going into the bigger stretch goals! These are our more ambitious stretch goals

  • Xbox One Support!
  • PlayStation 3, 4 and Vita Support!
  • New Game Ideas! (We are developing prototypes for them right now! Maybe some of you will see them…)
  • Online Battle Mode???
  • Nintendo Consoles Support???

Online Battle Mode: Across far lands lie other champions waiting for you. Thanks to the Doors of the Time’s Corridor, the champions now await you. Battle other players for glory and become champion of the world.

Grandpa Pixel aims to have Legena: Union Tides finished by August 2015 with Beta Testing occurring at least 2 months earlier, giving them time to tweak the game, and make it an amazing experience. Unless you gain Developer Access in which case you have access to all Builds.  They are also aiming to have War Bred Children released in 2016 and Alley Girl in 2017. Fingers crossed!

The Legena Engine is now complete and all that remains is to make these amazing games! And with Union Tides coming along at such a swift pace, all that remains is funding, your support, and bring the title to the quality people expect.
