Set in the Milky Way during 13,000 B.C. You play as Rog Epimetheos: a shirtless and carefree spacefaring “dude” with a propensity for partying and making music as he cruises the galaxy with his skybot Jib aboard his ship Songbringer, searching for verdant planets absent the presence of galactic police.
But during a routine mission, Roq finds the nanosword hidden in a cave on Ekzera, and unwittingly awakens an ancient evil.
As for your companion Jib, he began his existence as a human boy on the skycity planet Yuerder. Growing up he took an interest in programming artificial intelligence, which he eventually made a career out of it. On his deathbed, he illegally transferred his consciousness into a skybot.
Jib scans bodies of fallen foes for Roq, sometimes uncovering valuable loot. He can also stun foes as well. Notably, a second-player via local co-op controls him, otherwise is AI controlled.
Songbringer notably features a unique procedurally generation system where you choose a 6-letter “world seed” when beginning a quest. This seed is used to be procedurally generate the planet, overworld, secrets, and dungeons. Meanwhile, if you enter the same world seed, you get the same world, no matter what platform you’re on. Thus your lore and competition is shareable.
The generated overworld described as open and non-linear, and played in whatever order or style you want. Of the nine dungeons Roq and Jib can uncover in each world: some are thematic, containing puzzles and items integral to competing the world; some are secret, hidden side quests in which you can earn abilities; and some are tough, full of difficult bosses and foes.
