The Lithuania-based indie games publisher/developer Charlie Oscar (the creators of the acclaimed Gremlins, Inc.) today announced with great joy and pride that their anticipated turn-based party RPG “Spire of Sorcery” is coming to PC via Steam Early Access today for 20/$20/¥2.000.
One of the most-wishlisted games on Steam as of today, Spire of Sorcery releases in 7 languages (English, Japanese, Korean, German, French, Russian and Simplified Chinese), with an ambitious development roadmap for the months to come. The studio will post an announcement on the Spire of Sorcery store page discussing all the details about this Early Access later today.
In Spire of Sorcery, you control a party of runaway mages, set in a quest to help the sentient magical citadel mend the broken world of Rund. Explore the world, and use your spells, alchemy, and gear to engage with the realms of life, death, and chaos to help the sentient to confront your enemies and gather resources and knowledge to increase your power.
Manage your party, taking their mood and personal traits into account; find new members and level them up to make your cabal more powerful. In combat, cast your spells using a unique deck-building system, and empower your mages with alchemic potions and special equipment.
Spire of Sorcery mixes turn-based strategy, RPG, exploration and roguelite elements: the world of Rund is larger than what you can explore in a single play-through, and every challenge and situation you will find in the game has alternative solutions.
Explore the original world of Rund to discover creatures, resources and recipes
Cast spells, including combos, to affect opponents and trigger environmental effects
Concoct substances that range from curative to explosive
Prevail in encounters by combining the effects of spellscasting, alchemy & equipment
Manage your party, considering mood and personal traits of its members
Find new party members and increase their stats to reach their true potential
Taste any resource that you find to modify the looks of your party members
Collect resources to cook food that may taste great (or horrible)
Expand the Spire with new rooms that offer new mechanics
Break into ancient barrows, dispel cursed weepers & battle infection-ridden gigglers
Resolve mini-stories that pose moral choices, affecting the mood of your party
