Developer Flying Oak Games and publisher Dear Villagers (Recompile) have released the hit rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer on the PS4 and the PS Vita today.
As of today, players can download ScourgeBringer via the digital store on both PS4 and PS Vita. The limited release PS4 physical edition is currently available for pre-order, with a boxed version of the Vita port soon to follow.
ScourgeBringer is a fast-paced rogue-platformer first released to critical acclaim on Steam, Nintendo Switch, Xbox and Game Pass in late 2020.
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.
