Take a break from violent and gritty shooters with a bright, colorful, and gleeful game—from developer Greg Lobanov, Wandersong is a musical adventure now available on PC, Mac, and Switch. Players will take the role of a “lowly bard” and use the power of the Earthsong melody to save the planet.

This game has plenty of fun characters to interact with and a variety of puzzles to solve. Featuring the talents of sound designer Em Halberstadt (Night in the Woods) and music composer Gordon McGladdery (Rogue Legacy), Wandersong is an auditory and visual feast.

The whimsical project is the result of a successful 2016 Kickstarter campaign, and the game has enjoyed much critical success and recognition in events such as PAX and GDC. You can check out the impressive color palette through the multiple screenshots below, but take a look at the launch trailer that released today for a better idea of how singing and sound is used in a gameplay sense.
