The fact that it’s forbidden makes it even more alluring.
Full of action, suspense, comedy and unexpected twists and turns, The Forbidden Arts takes place in a magical realm combining western and eastern culture and is brought to life with a bright and colourful art style accentuated by an acoustic guitar soundtrack.
When the hero of the game, Phoenix, seeks the counsel of a druid to make sense of his visions, she awakens the latent pyromancy within him. This begins an epic journey from Phoenix’s humble beginnings to leading a powerful party on a mission to save the world of Chora from the blight of a powerful necromancer.
Phoenix will embark on quests, solve puzzles, discover long-forgotten secrets, and battle enemies in a grand adventure of ancient magic. By controlling the power of fire within, Phoenix will discover new ways to take down enemies and bosses, as well as understand his inner flame.
The Forbidden arts will be released as early access on Steam on the 7th of February. Initially priced at $9.99 (no price info for other regions yet), the developers Stingbot Games have confirmed that the price will increase as more content is added to the game.
