If you have been itching for a new heavy metal and rock-centric video game, then you should absolutely check out this adventure RPG title. Released earlier this month by Deathbulge, Five Houses LLC, Deathbulge: Battle of the Bands is an epic RPG that offers exploration, intense combat, and an abundance of heavy metal attitude.
Per details provided on the game’s Steam page, Deathbulge: Battle of the Bands is “a role-playing game featuring musical themes with an affinity for the sick and ridiculous. The story revolves around a deadly battle of the bands contest, where entrants can attack and be attacked with music.”
Deathbulge is like if you took the mechanics of Earthbound and Final Fantasy, mashed them up with an Adventure Time-like vibe, and then threw in a ton of rock and heavy metal flavor.
The trailer for Deathbulge, which you can check out below, shows off the game’s absurdly awesome fantasy world, as well as the various elements of gameplay that are involved.
Using your musical and magical abilities, you and your party will battle a plethora of comical-looking enemies.
While the aesthetics of Deathbulge are far more wholesome compared to something like Metal: Helsinger, this RPG looks like it is one hell of a fun and adventurous experience. At the time of this writing, Deathbulge: Battle of the Bands is available for $19.99 on Steam and can be played on Windows and Mac.
