In a surprise move last Friday, SOEDESCO, publisher of acclaimed horror game Among the Sleep, released their music-themed action-RPG AereA for Steam.
AereA features a world where fighting is done with musical instruments. Players will build parties of harp archers, cello knights, lute mages, and trumpet gunners. In both single and co-op play, the game will feature a wide variety of biomes as the story takes the musical warriors through the floating island kingdom of Aezir.
SOEDESCO teamed up with ‘Broforce’ composer Deon van Heerden for the game’s original soundtrack. Each of the nine Bosses in the game has a specially themed instrument and each Boss has its own soundtrack featuring that instrument. The game’s soundtrack will be available as part of a boxed Collector’s Edition, and is currently available through Steam along with an AereA artbook.
“We are excited about every game we release, but since AereA is an original Soedesco IP we are even more thrilled. This launch is a surprise release on Steam, because we couldn’t wait to share this great game with players,” said Hans van Brakel of Soedesco. “Console gamers won’t have to wait much longer for the game though. They can pre-order the game now, ahead of its June 30th launch date.”
The Collector’s Edition of the game will be available June 30th, as well as digital versions for PS4 and Xbox One. You can check out the game’s Steam page here or visit the game’s website at http://www.aerea-game.com.
