Literary-Themed Platformer Bookbound Brigade Launches Soon

Bookbound Brigade is a metroidvania action-platformer based around famous characters from history and literature, and it drops later this month.

Bookbound Brigade impressed GameSpew’s co-editor Kim when she previewed it at EGX last year – thanks to its smooth gameplay, simple art style and sharp writing – so it comes as welcome news that it will be releasing for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on January 30th.

Take control of a group of iconic characters, from Queen Victoria and Robin Hood to Sun Wukong and Dracula. An action-platformer in the metroidvania style, Bookbound Brigade lets you explore rich and detailed worlds using unique abilities for each character, in an epic quest to recover the mystical Book of Books.


Check out the new story trailer below, or head over to the official Bookbound Brigade website for more information. You can also go to the game’s Steam Store page to add it to your wishlist.
