Develoepr Wizard Fu and publisher Double Eleven have announced that their retro-inspired RPG Songbringer will be releasing early next month.

Songbringer follows space-faring planetary surveyor Roq and his robotic companion Jib as they venture out to save the universe from an unspeakably evil army which they have accidentally awoken on the world of Ekzerra (whoops). It will be up to players to explore Ekzerra, complete trials, defeat countless enemies, and unlocking new abilities, as they attempt to once again bring peace across the entire galaxy. For more information, check out the list of key features below:

  • Single=player action RPG

  • Real time combat
  • 7 kinds of weapons including the nanosword, boomerang-like top hat, bombs, blink orb, ghost sword projectile, liter, and kilobombs
  • Hundreds of unique items and powerups
  • Some items can be combined, for example: ghost sword + lightning cube = lightning sword
  • Hidden items, secret entrances, secret pathways, bomb-able walls
  • Original soundtrack
  • Online leaderboeards highlight the top players based on completion time, percentage of map uncovered, and percentage of items found
  • Roguelike-inspired permadeath option which gives a higher score on the leaderboard and allows for faster runs
  • Approximately 6 – 12 hours of gameplay, per adventure depending on thoroughness
  • Procedurally generated overworld and dungeons

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side (once you get to know him), Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of developers, consoles, and genres, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Donkey Kong Country 2, The Binding of Isaac, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
