Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime is a medieval future roguelike coming to Steam Early Access later this year

From Press Release:

Berlin, Germany, June 1, 2022 – Spiritus Games and new publisher PRISMATIKA today announce Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime, a techno-fantasy roguelike coming first to PC via Steam Early Access later this year, and arriving on consoles at 1.0 launch. Players will be able to start their quest to protect their kingdom as early as June 12th, when the demo launches as part of Steam Next Fest.

In Fabular: Once Upon a Spacetime, you are the last remaining royal – the Void Lords have stolen the sun, your brothers have vanished into deep space, and the king grows old and fragile – the fate of the kingdom rests upon your shoulders, and your blade. This vast action-roguelike sees the futuristic and the medieval collide in a procedurally generated universe, brought to life through a combination of epic pixel art and hand-drawn illustrations.

Fabular is to be published by newly formed PRISMATIKA, a hands-on boutique publisher founded by two former senior execs at Humble Bundle, and its publishing division Humble Games. PRISMATIKA partner closely with indie studios to help bring their uniquely creative games to full fruition, and have a further two titles signed for an announcement at a later date.
