Soundfall Hits its' Fundraising Goal
Drastic Games, a video game startup founded by Epic games alumni, has announced that Soundfall has blasted past its funding goal of $55K on Fig.co. Soundfall is in development for a few different platforms, including the Xbox One.
Soundfall is an audio-driven dungeon crawler thats procedurally generated to music, melding the charm of classic adventure games with the intensity of twin-stick shooters. Soundfall takes the synthesis of music and video games to daring new heights.
Players begin their musical adventure as Melody, a talented young audiophile mysteriously transported to Symphonia, a world where music comes to life. Melody must friend endearing allies and wield legendary weapons against a horde of adversaries in a race to halt the return of an unfathomable darkness, Discord.
Music drives every aspect of Soundfall. Time your actions to the beat of the music to super-charge their effects as you dash, blast, and slash your way through a world forged by sound.
A few of the gameplay features are as follows:
- Musical Immersion: Soundfall uses your music to fuel its gameplay. Everything from environments to creatures acting in time with the music. It’s all about immersing you in a world of sound.
- Battle to the Beat: Play in time with your music as you fight back Discord. Unlock the power of your symphonic arsenal by dashing, slashing, and smashing to the beat. Chain together actions to form bigger, better on-beat combos.
- Narrative Driven: Soundfall is as much about story as it is about music, and throughout the game you encounter a host of memorable personalities with a look and style all their own.
- Cooperative Emphasis: Play any portion of Soundfall alone or with friends. Share the adventure with up to 3 friends in both couch co-op and online multiplayer.
- Procedural and Hand-crafted Content: The world of Symphonia is made up of both hand-crafted levels designed by us and procedural levels generated from your music.
- Legendary Artifacts: Discover ancient artifacts throughout Symphonia, each with unique abilities that synergize for compelling team-play.
- Procedural Weapons: Unlock and wield one-of-a-kind weapons with unique gameplay and effects. Find weapons that express your personality and play style.
- Character Progression: Your characters gain persistent power over time, allowing you to find and equip more awesome gear. From prog-rock to hip-hop, build your kit as you build your palette.
We hope to have more as the game continues on its development path.
