Press release:
Baltimore, MD – September 26th 2019 Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with Breadcrumbs Interactive today announced that pre-orders are now available for its action role-playing game “Yaga” ahead of its November launch on PC via the Epic Games Store. Yaga will also be arriving to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One at the same time.

Gamers who pre-order on the Epic Games store can save 20% on the game, the soundtrack, and the Bad Luck Bundle.

The Epic Games store has three SKUs players can purchase:

Yaga – Main Game $24.99

Yaga – Official Soundtrack – $7.99

Yaga Bad Luck Bundle – Main Game + Soundtrack Bundle – $29.99

All SKUs are eligible for the 20%-off pre-order discount

Yaga’s darkly funny narrative and action role-playing premise tells the story of Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith with incredibly bad luck, who must take on the impossible tasks given to him by the tzar.

All the while the mysterious witch, Baba Yaga, watches over Ivan’s fate as he bludgeons a variety of nefarious monsters and legends all of which have been inspired by Slavic folk tales.

Players can take on this motley underworld of beasts and abominations with a variety of weapons that they can create with Yaga’s deep crafting system to forge lightning hammers and hookshot pitchforks and other similarly deadly melee weapons.

Yaga features a head-bobbing Romanian hip-hop soundtrack from Subcarpați and all beautifully realized with stunning hand-drawn 2D animation.

Players can also explore a combination of talismans, magic items, blessings, perks, and curses to fundamentally change how Ivan plays. Multiple endings and mission outcomes, not to mention its hidden secrets means Yaga can be played over and over again.

“Yaga’s unique mix of traditional rogue-like and RPG mechanics, combined with its eye-catching art makes it a game that’s hard to put down. Presenting an ARPG within the rich Slavic folklore and exploring the history it represents is another distinguishing factor to Yaga. We can’t wait for gamers to play Yaga this November.” Said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil.

Half-man, half bird, Nightingale is a brigand who lives in a giant nest above the trees in the forest. Nightingale preys on the unsuspecting passers by, taking either their loot, or their life. Careful, he’s quick, agile, and can attack from afar.

In popular Russian legend, Il’ya Muromets is an epic and heroic figure. On a mission to get to Kiev, Il’ya had to cross the Briansk Woods. The path through was overgrown, as Solovei Rakhmatich, also known as Nightingale, killed all who attempted to pass. Nightingale was known for his powerful whistle, which could flatten trees and kill men dead.

Il’ya survived Nightingale’s powerful whistle, he shot a fiery arrow at Nightingale’s temple, pounced on him and captured him. Nightingale’s human children tried to come to his rescue, but Il’ya killed them all. Il’ya then presented Nightingale to the prince and ultimately beheaded the half-man, half-bird thief.

But this never happened in Ivan’s world. The legendary warrior Il’ya is far away, and Nightingale is on the loose. Can a simple blacksmith face such a challenging foe?
