3 min read

The Summer of Greed kicks off today, and it’s a blast from the past! Raw Fury has released Kingdom Eighties, the latest standalone game in the award-winning micro-strategy series, on PC and Mac via Steam. A single-player love letter to the nostalgic days of summer camps, riding bikes, and sitting around in your pajamas in front of the TV on Saturday mornings, this stylish spin on the hit Kingdom franchise is available for $11.99, but you can grab it for 10% off for a limited time!

Fans can also rule in style with two special Kingdom Eighties bundles on Steam. Kingdom Eighties Rad Edition features the full game, plus its epic art book and original soundtrack by Andreas Hald, all for $19.01, which includes a 24% discount available at launch. And for completionists, the Kingdom Imperial Collection gets you every game in the Kingdom franchise on Steam for $56.78 after a 26% launch discount. This collection includes Kingdom Eighties plus its art book and OST, Kingdom: Classic, Kingdom: New Lands, and Kingdom Two Crowns plus the Kingdom Two Crowns OST and the “Norse Lands” DLC.

An epic adventure of micro-strategy and base building awaits you in Kingdom Eighties! You play as the Leader, a young camp counselor who must protect the town of Monarch from the relentless attacks of the mysterious Greed. But you won’t ride alone! Along the way you’ll find new friends to lend you their skills on your quest: the Champ, the Tinkerer, and the Wiz.

Recruit the neighborhood kids and assign them roles like soldiers and builders, use coins to build and expand your kingdom, and fortify it by raising walls and defensive turrets. Explore your new urban surroundings to unlock mounts, discover mighty weapons and tech upgrades, and manage your resources wisely to survive. But be ready – when night falls, the Greed will attack without mercy. If you lose your crown, the whole town is doomed!
