PQube and developer Joysteak has announced the upcoming release of Songbird Symphony, an irresistible and heart-warming tale that has already picked up accolades aplenty, including the Judges’ Choice award at GameStart 2017 and the Best Audio prize at TpGS 2018.
Songbird Symphony tells the story of Birb, a young orphaned bird who, having been brought up by a family of Peacocks who discovered him when he was an abandoned egg, slowly starts to realise he’s somewhat different to the rest of his acquaintances. Setting out a journey of self-discovery, players take charge of Birb as he leaves the nest and heads out into a world bursting with life.
“Birb’s story is one of adventure and discovery, but one tied to the rhythm of the forest – quite literally,” says Tan Kang Soon, Producer and Artist at Joysteak. “We set out to make Songbird Symphony as endearing and frankly adorable as we could, but the focus on music-based play also adds a sense of depth that players might not initially be expecting.”
“You just don’t see all too many games like Songbird Symphony,” adds Amaria Larchet, Product Manager at PQube. “Ever since we first met Joysteak, we haven’t been able to get the game out of our heads – it sings the perfect tune for us here at PQube.”
Songbird Symphony will feature: –
• An engaging adventure featuring Birb, a unique little bird with a love of singing and bouncing
• Dazzling pixel based graphics that interweave seamlessly with gorgeous sceneries and delightful animations
• Interacting with other characters adds layers of beat to the game’s soundtrack
• Singing in time with the music adds platforms to play that help the forest’s cast of creatures
• A vast world to explore with 12 interconnected levels featuring scores of secret, hidden areas
Songbird Symphony will be launching on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam in Spring 2019.
