For those of you who haven’t heard of Songbringer yet, it’s an old-school action-adventure game that was successfully funded on Kickstarter last year, meant to be a loving homage to the Zelda series while also adding in a sci-fi twist and the main selling point of 308 million procedurally generated worlds to explore. Indeed, it’s been shaping up to be one impressive game so far.
And in a recent update, developer Wizard Fu Games announced that after a successful alpha release in October of last year, the beta version of Songbringer will be available to backers on February 21…a date specifically chosen to honor the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Legend of Zelda, the timeless game that served as the inspiration for them and countless others. In addition, new tweaks and features to the game such as a day-night cycle were announced as well. So backers will be seeing more of Songbringer next month, but for the rest of us, we’ll just have to wait until the game launches in 2016.
