31st August 2020, Montpellier, France – Developer Flying Oak Games and publisher Dear Villagers (Recompile) have announced that the fast-paced rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer is launching on 21st October for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Game Pass for PC and out of Steam Early Access (PC, Mac, Linux).
ScourgeBringer hit the Steam top 20 bestseller charts when it entered Early Access back in February, and is currently also available in Game Preview for Game Pass for PC.
ScourgeBringer aims to channel the mystery and rawness of an early rogue-platformer, with fluid control, aerial combat, pixel graphics and a punchy soundtrack. The story follows hero Kyhra, who is sent away to uncover the secrets of an Eldritch monolith which is threatening to destroy her world. Armed with her trusty combat drone, she must shoot and slash her way through the infinite depths of an ever-changing dungeon, wherein gigantic bosses, ancient machines, strange ghosts and untold secrets from previous explorers await.
There is no backtracking, as the game’s structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike the Binding of Isaac.
The game is in open development, with an in-game feedback system gathering feedback from players, and regular looks behind the curtain courtesy of regular development updates from Flying Oak Games, who you can follow on Twitter here.
