Procedural Action RPG Songbringer gets Winter 2017 Release Window


One-man development team Wizard Fu and publisher Double Eleven (Goat Simulator, Limbo) today announced that their procedural action RPG Songbringer will be released around the middle of 2017. The game has been compared to the top-down Legend of Zelda games, however it is set in 13,000 BC in our galaxy, the Milky Way.

While there is a bit of gameplay footage available for Songbringer, it remains to be seen how well the game will work. Although Songbringer will contain ten mapped out dungeons, the overworld will have approximately 308 million environment combinations. Players choose a combination of six letters at the start of Songbringer which will then generate their own unique world.

Check out the beta trailer below:

 

Official Songbringer Product Description:

Songbringer is scifi action RPG with swords, secrets, dungeons, bosses and stuff.

You play the role of protagonist and accidental hero, Roq Epimetheos. With a propensity for partying and making music, he cruises the galaxy with his skybot Jib aboard the ship Songbringer, searching for verdant planets absent the presence of galactic police.

When Roq finds the nanosword hidden in a cave on Ekzerra, he unwittingly awakens an ancient evil. The sword is pretty fraggin’ sweet though. It… hums.

There is no pricing available yet, but we do know that Songbringer is expected to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Mac and Linux. You can check out the official Songbringer website here, as well as the Songbringer Steam page here.
