Developer Solar Sail Games has released a new behind-the-scenes video featuring gameplay footage and discussions with key team members who talk about what makes Smoke and Sacrifice’s blend of narrative with survival and RPG gameplay truly compelling.
Smoke and Sacrifice is an open-world, narrative-driven RPG set in expansive underworld where grotesque creatures consume each other, pollinate plants, and reproduce in a functioning ecosystem. Players need to watch carefully to discover ways to exploit these relationships to their advantage. You’ll need to trap, tame, lure, and disguise yourself in order to survive and progress.
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 the 31st of May on PC and Nintendo Switch for $24.99/€24.99/£19.99 with a 20% discount for its first 2 weeks of sale. PS4 and Xbox One versions will follow later in 2018.
