Sidescrolling musical platformer Symphonia announced for PC and consoles


Hot on the heels of their Gamescom 2023 lineup, publisher Headup Games and developer Sunny Peak have announced Symphonia, a new sidescrolling platformer.

Symphonia is in development for Windows PC (via Steam) and unannounced consoles, with a release set for early 2024.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus its reveal trailer:

In the realm of Symphonia, music acts as a source of life and energy. But since the founders and their orchestra vanished the inhabitants are divided, and the world slowly falls into silence. What if there was a way to gather a new orchestra? That’s the question Philemon, the mysterious musician in Symphonia, will have to answer.

Embody a Mysterious Violinist

Embody a mysterious violinist, brought back to life in a declining world. Your violin and bow are both your instrument and a means of transport. Catapult yourself through the world, and complete levels by solving exciting platforming challenges while re-activating the machinery that brings life and energy back to this world.

Discover a Musical World

Discover a musical world, based on the symphonic orchestra, and filled with colourful characters. Each area in Symphonia has its own distinct feel and characters, and each room is hand-crafted. Meet prodigious musicians and try to convince them to join the orchestra.

A Unique Orchestral Soundtrack

A unique soundtrack, based on the romantic musical period, crafted by composer Olivier Esman. Enjoy the performance of the Scoring Orchestra Paris, recorded specifically for Symphonia and written by composer Olivier Esman and his team. Play engrossing concerts, each centred around one of the families of instruments – Strings, Brass and Woodwinds.
