Zapling Bygone is coming soon to all consoles

Barcelona, Spain. February 16th, 2023.

JanduSoft is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Zapling Bygone, an amazing metroidvania developed by the solodev 9FingerGames. The game is set to release on March 9th for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch consoles.

Zapling Bygone is a twisted metroidvania where you murder your foes and steal their abilities by wearing their skulls and absorbing their consciousness into your hive-mind.

Every ability is gained by killing a boss and stealing their skull. These abilities allow you to transverse the world in new and exciting ways as well as help you destroy your opponents.

Each Skull is unique

Explore a vast, dangerous and interconnected world with only you and your skulls as company. Reveal each biome in the world by collecting the skulls of people who lived in them.

Explore and conquer 6 biomes, each with their own enemies, bosses and backstory. When wearing the skulls of your foes you will gain access to their memories and unlock comic strip panels representing major events in their lives. The skulls will even talk to you throughout your adventure.
