More On: ScourgeBringer
ScourgeBringer is a rogue-like 2D platformer that from the launch trailer looks like what you'd get if you mixed your favorite pixel art platformer with Aeon Flux. Well it just left the Early Access period and is ready for full release across systems. The official 1.0 release update from last week included the new realm “The Beyond,” a new post-game mode called “Chaos Roots,” secret rooms, revamped systems, an updated story, blessings, minis bosses and more. Steam has the full release notes, and the game is now also on GOG, the Epic Store, Xbox One, and Switch.  

From the press release: 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’s structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike the Binding of Isaac.

  • Dive into fast-paced rogue-platforming gameplay described by Eurogamer as "Dead Cells meets Celeste"
  • Slash and shoot your way smoothly with superfluid platforming controls
  • Sharpen your skills with a frantic combat system focused on attacks only
  • Dash forward to the otherworldly adaptive sounds of Joonas Turner (Nuclear Throne, Downwell, Broforce...)
  • Defy hordes of unspeakable enemies and giant bosses holding the secrets of the Scourge
  • Explore the infinite depths of an ever-changing dungeon
  • Uncover mysteries and find mementoes of previous explorers to unlock reality defining secrets

Being the first week of releases ScourgeBirnger is also available for 15% off, but time is running out quickly on that offer.  PC versions also have a Supporter Pack available which includes digital extras like a comic prequel, early prototypes artwork, 4K wallpapers, and a the original soundtrack by Joonas Turner.
