Never again face the difficult decision between space-shooter or fantasy rogue-like, because Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime promises the best of both worlds! A new trailer for this debut title from developer Spiritus Games released today. In the trailer, space-fighting mechanics work through detailed 2D pixel art to show off Fabular’s unique feel.
That heavily armed ship is piloted and inhabited by a young space-knight on a quest to reclaim the Sun from the League of Black Knights. On his journey through procedurally generated stellar environments, this hero will encounter intergalactic versions of familiar fairy tale features such as Seven-League Boots, Table-Be-Set or The Puss in Boots through randomly generated text based encounters. Through systems of equipment, upgrades, and unlockables, the space-knight’s ship grows better suited to the demands of defending its pilot.
Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime is set to bring its space-based fairy tale quest to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in the fall. For more information, check out the game’s official website.
