14th October 2020, Montpellier, France - Developer Flying Oak Games and publisher Dear Villagers (Recompile) have announced that the fast-paced rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer today got a brand new “Fast-Paced Action” trailer, alongside the launch of a free demo on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

ScourgeBringer hit the Steam top 20 bestseller charts when it entered Early Access back in February and is currently also available in Game Preview for Game Pass for PC.

Launch update highlights:

Chaos Roots: a new post-game mode, with different run modifiers and harder difficulty
System revamps: a new gun modification systems with weapon mods; a revamped item system, offering upgrades like shields

Secret rooms: will you find them?

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.

The game is in open development, with an in-game feedback system gathering feedback from players, and regular looks behind the curtain courtesy of regular development updates from Flying Oak Games, who you can follow on Twitter here.
