Songbringer is a 3/4 perspective, pixel art, sci-fi, action RPG with procedurally generated overworlds and dungeons. The game is single player or two player local co-op. Combat in the game is action-packed, including many kinds of weapons such as the nanosword, the boomerang-like top hat, the ghost sword projectile, bombs and the blink orb teleportation / dodge skill.
Players enter a six-letter world seed when starting a new adventure. The seed is used to generate the world dynamically and is deterministic. Entering the same seed will always generate the same world. Millions of worlds are possible.
Progress in the game is made by discovering new items which enhance the player's abilities and grant access to new areas. Some items can even be combined, for example the fire cube crafted with the tophat becomes a flaming top hat.
The player encounters various kinds of enemies, including gigantic bosses. Puzzles keep the gameplay fresh and varied. A deep and immersive narrative underpins the Songbringer universe. The story is told from the perspective of two friends: a human named Roq and a robot named Jib.
