You don’t normally see little old ladies being the stars of video games — let alone mobile games — but indie developer Arrogant Pixel‘s debut game sees an elderly woman as the lead character. The Tale of Doris and The Dragon, due to release in Fall 2016, is the story of Doris — a lady who has passed away and is now stuck in Purgatory.

The game follows her journey as she tries to find her lost husband. The Tale of Doris and The Dragon – Episode 1 has been available as a beta since April 2015 on Newgrounds and GameJolt, and has received raving reviews.

The game is a point and click adventure which truly plays homage to the retro games of the 90s with this design and soundtrack. The seemingly simple graphics and minimalistic gameplay keeps players focused on the game narrative and Doris’ adventures.

“This point and click adventure game was created out of sheer determination; a passion to take a game genre we cared about and do it justice. We wanted to create a game that we were proud of and had poured all of our love, time and creativity into. And that’s how Doris was born in January 2015.”

— Ben Simpson, Founder and Lead Designer

The Tale of Doris and the Dragon will be available on iOS and Android through the App Store and Google Play. It will also release on PC via Steam. An exact release date this fall is yet to be confirmed.
