ScourgeBringer roguelite platformer is due to get a full release in October for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Flying Oak Games and publisher Dear Villagers. Who are announcing the games launch on Steam and GOG.

The fast-paced rogue platformer ScourgeBringer is due to launch on October 21st. Marking it’s full release on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. But also on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Game Pass. Which is certainly a fairly fast turn around. Since the games just released into Early Access back February 2020. And the studio is living up to the “6 to 8 months depending on your feedback” outline.

ScourgeBringer – Announcement Trailer

ScourgeBringer hit the Steam top 20 bestseller charts. Shortly after entering Early Access back in February. Releasing a new realm, called “The Living Walls” back at the end of April. Including 4 additional skills including the “Dragon Punch”. With 5 new blessings to power up your character. Along with new enemies, including a boss fight and 6 new achievements.

While back at the end of July ScourgeBringer received it’s final content update. Letting players explore “The Old World”, the newest realm. Including more new enemies, 2 more mini bosses and another new boss. Along with a new skill branch. Not to mention a few new achievements too. Polishing that off with a revamp of existing skills

So now, as a game ScourgeBringer aims to channel the mystery and rawness of an early rogue platformer. Including fluid controls, aerial combat, pixel graphics and its punchy soundtrack. The story follows hero Kyhra, who is sent away to uncover the secrets of an Eldritch monolith. Which is also 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. While facing gigantic bosses, ancient machines and strange ghosts. Not to mention a few untold secrets from previous explorers await.

There is no backtracking in this roguelite platformer. As the game’s structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms. Somewhat similar to that of the Binding of Isaac.

The game is in open development, with an in-game feedback system gathering feedback from players. With regular looks behind the curtain courtesy of regular development updates from Flying Oak Games. You can find ScourgeBringer on Steam and GOG. Priced at $14.99 USD with support for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Due to release in October 21st.
