Wizard Fu Games and publisher Double Eleven have proudly announced today that Songbringer, a brand new sci-fi adventure action RPG, will be releasing on all platforms in early September. Specifically, the Xbox One and PC release will begin on September 1st and the PS4 release on September 5th.
In Songbringer, you play as Roq, a space-faring planetary surveyor who likes to party – woo! The game begins when Roq wakes up shirtless one day on a strange planet – er, woo? It’s up to Roq, accompanied by his robot companion Jib, to save the universe from the ancient evil army he’s accidentally awoken. Roq and Jib must explore the harsh, unforgiving lands of Ekzerra, master its dungeons and defeat its fearsome bosses to unlock the secrets of their own power and return the galaxy to peace. Not following quite the same formula as the Hangover movies, is it?
Songbringer was inspired by the original Zelda games and boasts real time combat, a wide range of weapons, and heaps of hidden secrets. World maps are procedurally generated from a six letter world seed which determines the layout of the overworld and dungeons.
