Summertime Launch Set For Procedural Zelda-like Songbringer

Now with the publisher backing of Double Elven, Wizard Fu’s procedurally generated pixel art action RPG Songbringer is officially a go for release this summer. It will be available on PC/Mac/Linux (via Steam and Humble Store) as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Like Legend of Zelda with a sci-fi roguelike slant, Songbringer stars human hero Roq, a dude who just so happens to awaken an ancient evil while exploring the Milky Way in search of the grooviest galactic party. With the help of his robotic sidekick, Jib, and the use of hallucinogenic cacti that enable him to see hidden secrets, Roq will quest across an overworld map consisting of 10 dungeons and 13 bosses. 6-digit seed codes input at the start of every adventure will generate a completely unique world configuration each time, though the same code can be used (or shared with friends) to recreate the same world over and over.

Crazy weapons, epic boss battles, tricky puzzles–this game’s got it all. Local co-op will even be supported, should you have a friend nearby who wants to join the party playing as Jib.
