Band Saga is a musical action roguelike that's currently looking for funding through a Kickstarter campaign. 'But what's a musical action roguelike?' I hear you cry. Well sit back, and allow me to educate you.

Okay, I don't really know either. By the looks of things it means that everything in the dungeon-crawling chunks of the game is generated by music. And as you play you'll learn to manipulate that music to your advantage.

The game includes an FM sequencer that lets you tweak the music, and eventually, when you understand enough, you'll be able to create new chunks of soundtrack that are all your own.

It all sounds rather exciting and fresh. There are new characters to unlock as you play that add new instruments to your repertoire, and there's even two player co-op if that's the sort of thing that floats your boat.



The dev is looking for $29,000 to finish the game off, and that will get it into our pockets as an iOS game. It'll also be available on PC.

If the first stretch goal of $45,000 is reached, then we'll see Band Saga on the PS Vita as well. Which would be nice, because the PS Vita has lots of nice buttons to press.

In the event that any of this sounds like it might be of some interest to you, you can head on over to the Band Saga Kickstarter and throw some money into its face. Or use PayPal or whatever, I don't really know how these things work.

We'll let you know when the game gets a concrete release date, and keep you posted when King inevitably sues rekcahdam for using the word saga.
