Five years after Amplified released, Brace Yourself Games drops the beat with Synchrony. As with the previous installments, this is early access using Steam’s platform. So you may want to wait if you’re not keen on helping to work out the kinks. Considering the how the previous installments panned out, it’s still a solid investment. Three new characters arrive to challenge the Necrodancer’s domain; Chaunter, Suzu, and Klarinetta. Each is locked to one weapon.
Chaunter starts with low health and stays that way. However, after dealing enough knife damage with his Lamp, he can take control of enemies for 24 beats!
Suzu uses a Lance that lets her kill rows of enemies as she dashes in a line. Invulnerable as she moves, bounce traps will ricochet her in new directions.
Klarinetta swings her massive Zweihänder via diagonal controls damaging anything in it’s path and blocking off one tile diagonal to her when idle. A full rotation locks in her in place and takes a full beat.
The trailer below promises multiplayer, new enemies, and new traps. Stay tuned to the end for a tease about Cadence’s future…
