Welcome To The Age Of Indie Game Cosplay

Soundfall, a “rhythm-driven dungeon crawler that’s procedurally generated to music”, looks cool as hell. It’s also doing some interesting stuff as far as cosplay is concerned.

Rather than rely on just trailers and demos, developers Drastic Games decided to get two of the most popular cosplayers in the US, Stella Chuu and Bindi Smalls, to dress up as two of the game’s characters, Brite and Melody.

I’ve written about paid cosplay work before, but that’s always been in the context of being big, blockbuster stuff. I’ve never seen this kind of thing from a tiny indie game before.

Anyway, regardless of the game in question, its terrific work!

    I played Soundfall at pax Aus and it was amazing. I highly recommend people check it out.
    It's currently on Fig, a video game kickstarter and while it's already reached it's goal to make the game, they are wanting to implement more stuff, like dance emotes, different musical instruments, voice acting and 2d cut scenes.
