IN SHORT: Evolings is a turn-based roguelike set to release on PC soon! It is being developed by Sørb and published by Super Rare Originals. Evolings combines a cute pixel art style with chip-tune music to create a game where you “obtain creatures! Evolve! Fuse! Battle!”
After the success of the top-down roguelike shooter OTXO, developed by Lateralis Heavy Industries and published by Super Rare Originals, the publisher has today announced that another roguelike is set to join the Super Rare Originals catalogue. While OTXO exuded the fast-paced shoot em’ up gameplay popularized by games like Hotline Miami the publisher’s next title takes a different approach. Evolings, developed by Sørb is set to offer a turn-based approach to the roguelike genre.
Combining the cute and the deadly, Evolings is set to allow players to take on hordes of evil monsters as they recruit equally deadly but adorable-looking creatures to aid in their adventure. Given the title is a roguelike no two playthroughs are set to be alike with players encountering a brand-new level map with each playthrough. Alongside the ever-changing landscape, players will get the chance to “acquire rare items, engage in thrilling battles, and create unforgettable stories.”
With the game taking a more strategic approach with turn-based RPG combat there will be numerous opportunities for you to show off your tactical prowess when taking on evil Evolings that come across your path.
Showing off a simple and beautifully crafted pixel art style Evolings is also set to include a chip-tune soundtrack for all you chip-tune lovers! Split up into three distinct acts you’ll be able to encounter and recruit exclusive Evolings in each act which should hopefully add a ton of replayability to the game when it releases. According to Evolings Steam page, the game should take players around 3-4 hours to fully get through all acts which sounds like the perfect game to take on the road.
For all you bestiary buffs Evolings will also feature an Evopedia that will let you know all the secrets of each Evoling you encounter on your journies. Evolings is set to make its way to PC soon but the full release date has yet to be announced.
