Official Press Release

Tactical Card Battler Floppy Knights Heads to Xbox, PC May 24

PORTLAND, OR – April 26, 2022 – Floppy Knights, the turn-based strategy deck-builder from developer Rose City Games, lands on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (via backwards compatibility), Xbox and PC Game Pass, and Steam for PC and Mac on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.

Join a brilliant young programmer, Phoebe, and her trusted robot-arm bestie, Carlton, on a journey to win the Science Fair and prove to her parents that she can make a living off of her inventions instead of getting a “real” job. With her Floppy Knights in tow, the mighty floppy disks turned into tangible projections of plants, monsters, and other collectible battle creatures, Phoebe starts taking on odd jobs around town to put them to the test.

Mix and match Plant, Monster, and Hooligan cards to build powerful decks filled with Phoebe’s inventions including the rotund Barrel Cactus, the fearsome Jessica, and Applejacker bandits. Enter turn-based battles to protect the townsfolk from fierce Goblin Grunts, flying BeheMoths, and Shady Shrooms. Choose a powerful commander to lead the Floppy Knights’ fight like Vera, whose signature card boost restores units’ health, or Big Mad, who becomes stronger after suffering damage, to secure victory for Phoebe.

Strategize your turns according to the special cards generated by each Floppy Knight to maximize their distinctive boosts and actions. Upgrade cards during battles to swing the tide in Phoebe’s favor by restoring health, increasing attack range, and other boons. Round out a strong team by completing secondary missions and win BigCoins to unlock new cards at Phoebe’s programming workshop.

Save the annual Science Fair from cancellation as a nearby volcano threatens to erupt. This is Phoebe’s year to take down Alex, a major copycat and super-mean nemesis, and her knock-off robot Snarlton. Win the coveted first-place cash prize at the Gadget Cup and find a whole new world of adventures waiting around the corner. Get Phoebe’s parents off her case (finally!), face the dangers of a spooky misted forest, escape an icy cavern prone to cave-ins, and survive a robot invasion, all with the help of the fearless Floppy Knights. Becoming a local hero isn’t easy, but with the right companions at her side, Phoebe might just be ready for it.

Enjoy the strategic movements and whimsical, eye-catching art style directed by Marlowe Dobbe (Dicey Dungeons) set to upbeat tunes that heigh each emotion-filled battle composed by Grahm Nesbitt (Garden Story, Goodbye Doggy).

“Floppy Knights is a wholesome adventure about becoming a hero when you least expect it,” said Marlowe Dobbe, Floppy Knights Creative Director. “We all experience ups and downs, and Phoebe’s story is an example of that–only much more magical and exciting!”

Floppy Knights debuts on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S (via backwards compatibility), Xbox and PC Game Pass, and Steam for Windows and Mac users on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, for USD $19.99. The game will support English text with additional languages to come in future updates. The soundtrack is available for purchase for USD $7.99 and streaming via Bandcamp.
