Developer Solar Sail Games and publisher Curve Digital announced that their hand-drawn narrative driven RPG Smoke And Sacrifice will launch on the 15th of January on PS4 and Xbox One.
Set in a darkly fantastical world where grotesque creatures roam and harsh societal customs rule, players assume the role of Sachi, a young mother on a quest to discover the fate of her child. Taking cues from modern survival classics, Smoke and Sacrifice evolves the genre with its deeply personal story and complex ecosystem. Creatures forage, mate, breed and prey on one another, creating a living world. Only by taming the game’s wilds can Sachi hope to unravel the mystery at the heart of Smoke and Sacrifice.
Depicted in a beautiful, hand-painted style, Smoke and Sacrifice’s storybook visuals belie its brutal story of motherhood and survival. Sachi doesn’t just have to worry about the game’s antagonists - the entire game world poses a threat. Players can alter the behavior of plant and animal life but this may also limit the resources Sachi has to craft items from. The deadly smoke also poses unique challenges throughout the game, altering enemy as well as player behavior.
Smoke and Sacrifice is currently available on PC and Nintendo Switch.
