French studio Flying Oak Games has teamed up with composer Joonas Turner (Nuclear Throne, Downwell) and publisher Dear Villagers to confirm that it is bringing its frantic rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer to the Nintendo Switch.
Described by our good pals at Eurogamer as « Dead Cells Meets Celeste« , ScourgeBringer boasts « fluid control, aerial combat, pixel graphics and a punchy soundtrack » and is currently available as an early-access release on PC, via Steam and Xbox Game Pass.
Here’s some PR:
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’s structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike the Binding of Isaac.
A full release for ScourgeBringer is planned for later this year.
