Bookbound Brigade is about beating the hell out of historical and literary characters you studied in school. You lead a dream team of real and fictional heroes through a 2D side-scrolling platform-adventure. The ‘Book of Books has been stolen and it will take your team to retrieve it. The Bookbound Brigade consists of the following:
Sun Wukong (the Monkey King)
Each character has powers needed to help the group progress through the game. Theft of the book has plunged the world into chaos and it is up to the brigade to right this wrong.
– 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.
Bookbound Brigade will be playable at Gamescom 2019. If you are not going to make it to Gamescom, the game will launch digitally on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch and PS4 later this year.
