Anticipated Rogue-Platformer ScourgeBringer Hits Steam Early Access February 6th
Will also launch on Xbox Game Pass for PC
Montpellier, France (January 21, 2020) French developer Flying Oak Games, composer Joonas Turner (Nuclear Throne, Downwell) and publisher Dear Villagers announce today that the highly anticipated fast-paced rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer hits Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Pass for PC on February 6th ahead of its full launch on PC and consoles later this year.
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 structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike the Binding of Isaac.
The game is currently 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: https://twitter.com/FlyingOakGames
