Developer Pixel Lantern has announced that its highly challenging platforming game Bard’s Gold is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One June 17, 2016.
The developer stated that,
“Bard’s Gold is slower-paced than most modern platformers and takes its gameplay inspiration from late ’80s and early ’90s classics such as Rick Dangerous, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Rainbow Islands, Wonder Boy in Monster World, Erik, and Rodland. It features an original soundtrack that perfectly frames the atmosphere, soothes your soul and fills you with confidence as you overcome levels you once thought were unbeatable.”
There are more than 100 levels, all of which have been handcrafted and are picked randomly for each playthrough. And if that is not enough to keep you playing over and over again, the game features a permanent upgrade system to make each and every one of your sessions count.
Bard’s Gold will release for PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One June 17, 2016. You can download Bard’s Gold on Steam right now.
