Songbringer gets tuned up with a new boss and difficulty

It's always been a surprise to me that last year's Songbringer didn't catch on more, especially given John's gushing review. Hot on the heels of the likes of Hyper Light Drifter, it presented a similar brand of deliciously pixelly hack n' slashery, but paired to a remarkably robust rogue-ish template.
