Even as the northern hemisphere emerges into Spring, Vambrace: Cold Soul will bring back memories of frost and chill when it releases in April.
Gothic adventure-slash-roguelike Vambrace: Cold Soul has a release date, but only for PC and Mac at the moment. The game will release on those platforms on 25 April. Players on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch will have to wait until Q3 2019 to get their hands on the game, however.
There’s also a new trailer for the game. Have a look below:
This is what the game’s about, according to the publisher:
You play as Evelia Lyric, bearer of the Aetherbrace and the only human capable of entering the cursed city of Icenaire. You must choose party members who will lend their unique strengths to your cause. Embark on expeditions and use perceptive allies to avoid traps and strange encounters. Leverage the strengths of fighters and magic wielders to survive deadly combat. Stock well and discover paths that will allow you precious time to recuperate in camps. The surface of Icenaire is cold and unforgiving, so you will need to use every advantage you can muster to survive!
Vambrace: Cold Soul is being developed by South Korean indie developer Devespresso Games. They’re best known for the survival horror adventure The Coma: Recut, and they’re also developing a sequel to that game with the working title “The Coma 2”. Publishing the game is Germany-based Headup Games, which has also signed on Truberbrook, The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia, and many other indie games.
If you don’t mind piloting a skyborne locomotive, you might enjoy the (optionally-) roguelike Sunless Skies, which we recently reviewed. You might also prefer straight-up space adventuring in Crying Suns.
