SONGBRINGER... the 2nd coming of 2D Zelda?!


I don't know about you... but in my opinion, 2D games have been kicking butt lately. I'm not talking sales numbers... what I am saying is that there are a number of titles that should not be overlooked simply for being 2D games... and SONGBRINGER is one of those games! For the veteran SDGT Ent supporters... you know variety is always something we push.

While the prevention of genre-burnout may be one of the reasons, supporting other genres is another and it helps us get gems we may have never considered if stuck on one genre. That said... if you're looking for something different but cool... check out the trailer, and if it tickles your fancy, check the game out at the link below (permadeath included)!

Some of you may be looking at the title and wondering what I may have smoked... while some of you may look at characteristics in the game and agree that there is a similar feel there. I look forward to seeing where things go from here (based on the game's success).
