With great love for the 8-bit classics, Songbringer began with a few simple live streams and now has a growing community of backers. Songbringer was funded with Kickstarter on May 13th, 2015 and given the Greenlight on Steam April 25th, 2015. Since then the game has had an early press release and multiple alpha releases to Steam. The beta version was released on Steam February 21st, 2016 — the 20 year anniversary of the release of the original Zelda game — and has received weekly updates since then. A final release date will be announced as soon as it is known. The game will be ported to additional platforms besides Steam including PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android.
