ScourgeBringer is a classic two-dimensional platformer with roguelike elements, inspired by award-winning games such as Dead Cells and Celeste. The developer of the production is an independent team from France, known for the shooter NeuroVoider, released in 2016 for PC, and in subsequent years for consoles.
The story in ScourgeBringer takes us to a post-apocalyptic Earth that was devastated and destroyed by a mysterious creature, spreading a poison that destroys all life. Players take on the role of Kihra, the most dangerous warrior of her clan, who goes on a journey through an unknown territory, in search of answers about the past and possible future of humanity.
Action in ScourgeBringer takes place on a two-dimensional stage, in a form known from classic platformers. At ScourgeBringer, we visit underground locations, consisting in part of randomly generated levels, filled with traps and many types of opponents. Kyhra has a number of special moves and attacks that are the basis of a fast attack-oriented combat system. Each stage ends with a duel with a powerful boss. In the dungeons, we can also find various secrets and souvenirs left by other daredevils.
The game has a eye-catching visual design, made in the pixel art style, inspired by the 16-bit hits of the genre of the 90s. The composer of music for ScourgeBringer is Joonas Turner, known for his soundtracks for Nuclear Throne, Downwell and Broforce .
