Flying Oak Games along with Dear Villagers (formerly Playdius) has this week unveiled a brand new roguelite title, ScourgeBringer.
ScourgeBringer hopes to channel the classic Metroidvania gameplay of a bygone era but bringing it to modern times with fluid controls, aerial combat, a sick soundtrack, and more.
In the game, players follow the story of Kyhra who has been sent on a mysterious journey to uncover the secrets of an Eldritch monolith that’s set on destroying her world. Fortunately, Kyhra, along with her combat drone, can slash and shoot their way through the changing dungeons and tackle huge bosses, machines, and ghouls, to uncover the Monolith’s secrets.
As for gameplay, in ScourgeBringer, players won’t be able to backtrack as, much like The Binding of Isaac, it follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms.
The game is currently in “open development” with an in-game feedback system which pulls together all of the suggestions and complaints from players to improve the game as it nears its launch.
There’s currently no release date for ScourgeBringer, but players can check out the Steam store page in the meantime, oh and take a look at the trailer below:
