About

Songbringer: Procedural Action RPG Songbringer is a scifi action RPG with swords, secrets, dungeons, bosses and stuff. You play the role of protagonist and accidental hero, Roq Epimetheos. With a propensity for partying and making music, he cruises the galaxy with his skybot Jib aboard the ship Songbringer, searching for verdant planets absent the presence of galactic police. When Roq finds the nanosword hidden in a cave on Ekzera, he unwittingly awakens an ancient evil. The sword is pretty fraggin' sweet though. It... hums. Jib, the Skybot Jib began life as a human boy on the skycity planet Yuerder. Growing up, he took an interest in programming artificial intelligence, eventually making a career for himself. On his deathbed, he illegally transferred his consciousness into a skybot, destroying the consciousness link thereby preventing overwrite. Jib scans the bodies of your fallen foes, sometimes uncovering valuable loot. He can also gain the ability to stun foes. Jib is automatically controlled by AI, or player two can play Jib in local co-op mode. Lacking the ability to grow one as a human, Jib is obsessed with mustaches. Procedural You choose a 6-letter world seed when beginning a quest. This seed is used to procedurally generate the planet, overworld, secrets and dungeons. Entering the same world seed will always generate the same world, no matter which platform you are playing on. Thus lore and competition can be shared with others. Play a new seed and surprise yourself with a new world. Or enter a seed you are familiar with for a speed run. Open / Non-linear The generated overworld is open and non-linear. Head in any compass direction you like or play dungeons out of order. You aren't even required to pick up the sword. Of the nine dungeons Roq and Jib can uncover in each world: Some are thematic, containing puzzles and items integral to completing the world. Some are secret, hidden side quests in which abilities can be gained. Some are tough as nails with overwhelmingly difficult foes, mobs and bosses. Secrets of the Cacti Everywhere one looks, there is much that is not seen. Concealed treasures abound. By eating cacti, Roq gains psychedelic powers and is able to perceive the secrets that lurk in plain sight. Some items Roq discovers can be combined to create distinct artifacts. Find a blink orb and a fire cube? Take these to the droidsmith aboard Songbringer to craft a fire orb enabling Roq to teleport forward a few steps while turning into a fireball. Songbringer features no experience points (no XP). Progress is made by crushing mobs, vanquishing bosses and claiming lost technological devices. Leaderboard On completing a quest, several factors are quantified to produce an overall score: Time to complete Percentage of map uncovered Percentage of items obtained Game mode: regular vs permadeath Your score can be saved to a global leaderboard sorted by world seed. This leaderboard cycles through seeds by popularity and freshness. You can manually override to view a particular seed.

Songbringer reviews and comments

Zelda 1 with Randomizer and cyberpunk paint. Works Damn well and captivates! First Impression: https://youtu.be/xsknHV3uv7U Pro:-Concept is strongly reminiscent of the first Zelda-very many Items with different application-Despite Procedural generation it works handmade And alive Contra:-sometimes inaccurate Control-pixelart graphics Sometimes very crowded-humour seems very good in English, Sometimes a little trying hard in German

Product received for free A pretty pixel art Game with an interesting story, lots of monster netting and Puzzles. If you don't get through the most diverse Opponents, keep one of the little robot companions with great Sayings in a Mood. The Game doesn't take itself seriously and I particularly like that. It makes shameless use of various Klichees and makes you smile one Time or another. The Comparison with the earlier Zelda parts was often cited in the other Reviews and is also absolutely justified. The Soundtrack is consistent and comes across very well at the Beginning. However, after a While, the Whole thing drifts into a monotonous background beat and is sometimes indistinguishable from the Fighting Sounds. What a pity! If you have something left for Games of this Kind, you should definitely do Rehearse. After the first 60 Minutes you can form a Judgement quite well and decide whether the Game suits you or not. therefore.... Test! Moving Image for Review?

The Game is very difficult to recommend, but in my Opinion quite well done. This is a Hybrid of "Zelda 1" and "Hyper Light Drifter" with a random Generated world + Dungeons ... The Worlds are generated with 6-digit seeds that can be shared and the Developer gives Help with each Seed as long as he is active in the Community ... I've enjoyed exploration, puzzles, Fights and Bosses so far. Did not defeat the Final Boss, because he mobbled me up on the first Visit and I want to find the rest of the Secrets of my World. Pros:-Pixel Graphics are well implemented-Sound has also been well done-Game Mechanics have all been reliable for me, no bugs Whatsoever-Story is nicely done, I don't want to say any more ...:) Contra:-Because of the random Generated worlds, you may miss important Items and may have to look back ... I was in the penultimate Dungeon and had forgotten a very important Item in a previous Dungeon ... So take a nice look to play It safe ... But Until now was always guilt wenns did not go any further ... Sorry for the short Thrown together review ... Don't write any else, but at games like this I like to help the Developers with a Thumbs up ... Tan... : 3
