Retro sci-fi RPG ‘Songbringer’ arrives for PS4, Xbox One, Mac and PC

The pixel art-infused RPG Songbringer is a love letter to old-school role playing games, and we’ve been looking forward to its release on PlayStation 4 for a while now. The sci-fi title is out now and available on Xbox One and Windows 10, too. The game is $20 on all platforms, including PC and Mac on Steam and GoG.com, starting today.

Songbringer is from Nathan Weiss‘ one-man studio Wizard Fu, and while it features lots of hacking and slashing, it’s surprisingly light on actual gore. According to the Xbox One announcement, the in-game maps you traverse are generated by players with a six-letter world “seed” which will create the overworld and dungeon layouts while hiding some neat little secret discoveries, too.

There are 10 numbered dungeons to fight your way through, each a bit harder than the last. You’ll need to collect weapons and time your sword bashes to best defeat each boss at the end of the levels. Plus, you can eat one of the hallucinogenic cacti to boost your combat readiness and refill some of your health. Oh, and it’ll make everything look groovy. A second player can even control the protagonist’s robot companion. What’s not to like? The Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of Songbringer are cross-platform compatible, so you can play on either platform and pick up your saved games on the other.

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
