Evercade brings back the popular Indie Game focused Dual Cartridge collection with the 8-bit Edition of Alwa’s Awakening from Elden Pixels and a completely native port of Cathedral from Decemberborn.
Blaze Enteratinment is delighted to announce the second dual cartridge collection for Evercade with the addition of Alwa’s Awakening 8-Bit Edition and Cathedral to the already stellar line-up of modern retro inspired indie titles available on the system.
This new collection featuring two incredible games will come on a physical cartridge compatible with all Evercade systems running their latest firmware. It will also come with a full colour manual and our clamshell case with a brand new inlay design. This collection will be number 27 in the Evercade red-spine line up.
Alwa’s Awakening 8-bit Edition is the retro conversion of the incredible 2016 hit from Swedish developer, Elden Pixels. Adapted for a retro console release, this version presents the same incredible adventure featured on modern consoles with its catchy chiptune soundtrack and retro inspired design.
As Zoe, you will adventure to set free the land of Alwa, overcoming enemies and puzzles whilst upgrading your magic staff and its abilities. The world is a “metroidvania” style interconnected map with the ability for you to choose your own path and unlock new areas.
Cathedral was originally released on PC in 2019 and has since found many fans across all platforms. For this release, Swedish developer Decemberborn have converted the game specifically for Evercade, featuring bespoke controls and optimised performance.
This means that it is not an emulated title and marks the first commercial release of a native game on Evercade systems and on an Evercade cartridge. The game features an incredible soundtrack and over 600 rooms to explore with dungeons, towns and hidden areas.
