Smoke and Sacrifice, the February-announced hand-illustrated survival RPG from London-based developer Solar Sail Games, will launch for Switch and PC on May 31 for $24.99 / £19.99 with a 20 percent launch discount for the first two weeks of sale, publisher Curve Digital announced. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow in 2018.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
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.
Sachi’s home is the one tiny patch of fertile land which remains in an icy wasteland of a world. Her farming community thrives thanks to their devotion to the blazing Sun Tree, which replaces the lost light of the failed sun. After sacrificing her firstborn child to the Sun Tree, Sachi discovers a darker secret beneath the aura of priestly benevolence. Will she discover the truth hidden in the secret underworld, or perish in its swirling, deadly smoke?
With the odds stacked against her, strange creatures challenging her every step, and the ever-looming smoke waiting to steal life and memory, will Sachi ever discover the truth of what happened to her son?
