Bookbound Brigade side-scrolling action platform game

Guide a team of heroes assembled from beloved novels and history books, swapping between them to unleash special powers like King Arthur’s fiery charge attack or Dorothy Gale’s teleportation ability. Explore hand-drawn, richly themed worlds on an epic adventure to recover the mystical Book of Books.

Overcome challenges by experimenting with a variety of formations for the party. Organise the Brigade to let Dracula’s powerful bat wings carry the group to safety or swap to Wheel Formation to roll over enemies and climb steep walls. There’s not just one hero. Each member has a part to play in the journey.

Take charge as a noble team of iconic historical and fictional characters, guiding King Arthur, The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy Gale, Dracula, Queen Victoria, and more. Harness each characters’ special abilities to topple foes, surmount obstacles, and master an “all for one and one for all” approach, swapping between four formations to avoid enemy attacks, access new areas, and solve puzzles.

When the Book of Books, a mystical tome housing every word ever written, goes missing, trouble befalls the Literary World. Without the all-powerful Book, history’s greatest heroes and fiction’s most beloved characters will blink out of existence. Faced with this terrible fate, eight champions band together with one mission: retrieve the Book of Books before it’s too late. Known as the Bookbound Brigade, the heroes band together to search for the magnum opus.

Explore five sprawling, hand-drawn worlds evoking classic settings from acclaimed works of fiction. Engage with more than 50 non-playable characters ripped from chronicles and classics, undertaking sidequests to gain upgrades and experience to assist the Bookbound Brigade’s quest. Search for secrets, lost artifacts, and clues to unravel the fate of the Book of Books on an unforgettable journey set to an orchestral soundtrack imbued with an adventurous spirit.

“Bookbound Brigade breathes new life into many renowned characters and historical figures we read about,” said Sue Yim, Overseas Marketing Manager, Intragames. “We’re thrilled Digital Tales’ creative spin on the metroidvania genre will allow fiction lovers, history buffs, and platforming fans a chance to undertake this new adventure when the game launches for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam on Jan. 30.”

Bookbound Brigade will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC via Steam on Jan. 30, 2020 for $19.99 / €19.99 / £17.99 / $30.00 AUD. The game features support for English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese language options.
