Classically-Influenced top-down adventure brings tophat flinging on the go.
Songbringer unfolds as protagonist Roq journeys across the alien planet he’s crashed onto, bringing him more adventure, dangerous encounters and spiritual growth than he could have ever imagined. With help from his mustache-loving robot companion Jib, Roq must explore the perilous world before him, acquiring helpful items like a red party cup, navigating twisting dungeons while besting the freakish beasts within and learning more about the mysterious powers flowing through his temporary home as well as himself.
Each time players begin a new save file, they’ll influence their journey’s overworld map design by choosing a six-letter seed. Songbringer’s world generation keeps each step of Roq’s quest unpredictable, allowing both for immense replayability or to ensure you’re exploring the same map a friend is playing through in their own game.
The powerful objects added to Roq’s inventory can also be combined; Songbringer allows players to discover powerful possibilities including wrapping a flingable top hat in scorching flames or coating their blade in a biting frost capable of freezing pathways across water. With sharp storytelling, powerful allies to befriend and a mound of secrets, Songbringer’s adventure offers ample reason to keep coming back to the lush landscapes of Ekzera.
Songbringer originally launched on Steam last year, where it has received mostly positive reviews, as well as PS4 and Xbox one last year. The Switch version is coming on the 31st of May, including all updates for the PC and console versions, as well as the free DLC The Trial of Ren.
