Drastic Games announced its debut game Soundfall. The music-driven adventure drops on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
Soundfall is a hybrid of twin-stick shooting and rhythm-based gameplay to create a unique adventure. It is being developed by alumni from Epic Games and uses the power of Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.
It follows the journey of Melody. She is a young audiophile who is transported to the rhythmic world of Symphonia.
As she search for a way home from this land where music comes to life she finds herself in the center of a conflict. Melody must become the savior of Symphonia to save it from Discord, a darkness that threatens everything.
Symphonia is full of vibrant environments and outlandish creatures. It is a place where music drives every facet of this bombastic dungeon crawler. You’ll traverse this world shaped by sound as you explore forbidden dungeons and discover “the hidden power of song.”
All the levels, enemies, loot, and even more is procedurally-generated and reacts to a range of musical elements. These aspects change not only from song to song but from measure to measure as the music builds. Fight in these dynamic battles that sync to the beat and get rewards for performing dance-like combos in rhythm.
Soundfall also has plenty of gear and upgrades to find with weapons and artifacts that have audio-driven powers. It also has a diverse roster of playable characters that have their own playstyle and musical palettes making the game fun to play co-operatively online or on the couch with up to four friends.
Soundfall launches next year on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be playable at PAX West, EGX, and PAX Australia this year.
Soundfall looks totally unique with a fun approach to dungeon crawling and twin-stick shooting. We can’t wait to see what the rhythm-based gameplay looks like when we try it out at PAX West next month.
