Sacred Fire – The Visually Unique, Psychological RPG Where “Your Heart Hides All The Monsters”

Bratislava, Slovakia – March 16, 2017/… Independent developer Poetic Studio has today released a developer commentary gameplay video for its turn-based, psychological RPG Sacred Fire, coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Spring 2018.

Set to be voiced by the vocal talent of Doug Cockle (Geralt from The Witcher 3), Sacred Fire is a game about survival, power and hope, where players lead a band of resistance fighters in Caledonia (ancient Scotland) against the invading Roman Empire. Sacred Fire is not just about the outer, physical struggle for survival, but also about gaining political influence and the pursuit of inner balance, all of which will be presented in a distinctive cinematic art style created by Poetic Studios.

“We are excited to provide an in-depth look at Sacred Fire, which offers a unique narrative-based RPG experience where, as we say, your heart hides all of the monsters. The gameplay slice from our prologue demonstrates how the game is presented, and how the story will evolve based on the tactical decisions made during the choice driven narrative and cinematic turn-based combat,” says Andrej Vojtas, Creative Director, Poetic Studios.

Using Poetic Studio’s custom “Emotions & Motivations” storytelling platform, players can resolve conflicts in Sacred Fire by using a combination of smarts, skill, looks or empathy. To do so, they must build inner balance by coping with things such as fear and anger. Only a stable and strong personality can win respect with bravery in combat, deal with the political turmoil with their own ranks and rise above the fog of war to lead Caledonia to her fate. Will you embrace revenge and forcefully bring about freedom for yourself and your people – or will you fight for a better world through courage, sacrifice and diplomacy?

Poetic Studio’s ambitious debut, which deliberately avoided a fantasy setting, has already garnered industry interest and praise from the likes of Chris Avellone (Fallout New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenera), Arnie Jorgensen (The Banner Saga series) and Matus Kirchmayer (Assassins Creed and Far Cry series). Poetic Studio has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the completion of Sacred Fire. For further information on the campaign, including backer rewards, go to:

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (3 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (3 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (4 Days ago)
