Bookbound Brigade is a new take on the Metroidvania genre from Digital Tales and will be at Gamescom in Cologne (August 20th – 22nd). The focus of Bookbound Brigade is about beating up historical and literary characters through a dream team of real and fictional heroes. This 2D side-scroller will feature Dracula, King Arthur, Queen Victoria, Nikola Tesla, Dorothy Gale, Sun Wukong the Monkey King, and more. The “Book of Books” has been stolen, which is a volume that encompasses every single work of fiction/non-fiction ever.
– Explore, fight, backtrack, grow your skills and tackle challenging quests and puzzles, as in any Metroidvania game worthy of its name, but get ready for a twist…
– There is no single hero in Bookbound Brigade: you play as a party of unique characters, each with their own traits and skills, who move in formation and fight as one.
– All the characters, both playing and non-playing, are drawn from the pages of history and literature, so expect to meet some familiar and less familiar faces!
– The distinctive hand-drawn visuals, inspired by book illustration from all time, stray far from the pixel art dominating the Metroidvania genre.
