A “deceptively deep roguelike about balancing a seed up a dangerous and ever-changing mountain,” TumbleSeed is releasing on May 2 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, aeiowu announced today.

As you go up the procedurally generated mountain, you’ll use both sticks to avoid holes and defeat corrupted creatures across five worlds. You can also expect 30+ powers to acquire over the course of each run, a daily challenge where you can compete with friends or globally, and more.

Here’s some of the powers in TumbleSeed:

  • ThornSeed – This is your default attack from the start, you always have it. It’s tough to use and is a bit of a risk, but in the right hands sometimes it’s all you need.
  • SpringSeed – Sometimes things get a little too hot and you have to escape. SpringSeed lets you fly above danger so you can settle somewhere safer. It also pairs well with dangerous offensive seeds like BombBud, Maneater, LaserTrap and more!
  • StormSeed – Holes are everywhere in TumbleSeed. StormSeed calls down a rain cloud and fills in holes with buckets of rain water. It’s another seed that pairs well with dangerous offensive seeds like MaceSeed, ThornThrowers and more!

A price wasn’t given for TumbleSeed.
