23 July 2021.
The US-based indie games developer and publisher Sirenum Studios today announced with great joy and excitement that their pen-and-paper RPG-inspired adventure “Sorcerous” is now available for PC via Steam.
Andraste rushes to her Aunt Minerva’s room after hearing a scream, but barges in to a completely empty room. Later that night, a mysterious voice repeats the phrase in her mind “Only light can conquer darkness”. Sorcerous invites players to join this powerful mage as she builds a team of spellbinding prodigies to search through gothic and dieselpunk environments, fight to find her family, and uncover a dark mystery that could shake their world to its core.
Sorcerous breathes new life into the well-known fantasy creatures like goblins, skeletons, and even rats! Uncover the mysteries lurking in the city of Lethe through completing over 60 master-crafted quests that will absorb you into the world and its inhabitants.
Will you uncover the mysteries of the world of Meridius? Or will the dark streets of Lethe swallow you whole?
Sirenum Studios prides itself on narrative design, the smallest details and how they tell the tale of the world around them are an important part of engaging the player in the new world they find themselves in. Sorcerous comes alive with a voice-acted cast of characters, drawing the player in as they work to uncover the many mysteries of the world of Meridius.
David Swift, head of Sirenum Studios said:
“When developing Sorcerous, quest design was priority number one.”
“Each is a glimpse into the city of Lethe, an opportunity to build a more effective party and a compelling story in its own right.”
Sorcerous releases today on PC via Steam.
