Solar Sail Games offers new gameplay footage of narrative survival RPG.
Smoke and Sacrifice is an open-world, narrative-driven RPG where exploiting living ecosystems is the key to your survival. Craft, fight, survive and explore the huge open world in this beautifully hand-painted, gothic adventure where every character has their tale to tell. Smoke and Sacrifice is set in expansive underworld where grotesque creatures consume each other, pollinate plants, and reproduce in a functioning ecosystem. Watch carefully to discover ways to exploit these relationships to your advantage. You’ll need to trap, tame, lure, and disguise yourself in order to survive and progress.
Starting out weak and vulnerable to the dangers lurking under every rock, you will gradually discover the means to craft powerful weapons which can be used to take on the most powerful of the underworld’s denizens. Sachi’s home is the one tiny patch of fertile land which remains, surrounded by icy wasteland. Her farming community survives only thanks to their devotion to the blazing Sun Tree, which replaces the light of the failed sun. After sacrificing her firstborn child to the Sun Tree, Sachi discovers a darker secret – will she discover the truth of what happened to her son, or perish in the swirling, deadly smoke of the underworld?
Smoke And Sacrifice will launch on Steam on the 31st of May as well as Nintendo Switch, priced at £19.99 / €24.99 $24.99, with a 20% launch discount available to players within the first two weeks of sale. There will also be PS4 and Xbox One versions coming later this year.
