From indie developerSpearhead
Games, comes a promising turn-based sandbox RPG which takes shape according to the choices we make in the game.
Project Witchstone was presented at the GDC Indie in San Francisco this March. We could see an attractive design and turn-based fights that can only bring to mind the famous Divinity series.
In Project Witchstone, you arrive on an isolated island where seven rival factions have settled into an uneasy alliance but vie for control over powerful magical relics known as
The world you explore is alive, meaning that characters that inhabit this world go on with their daily lives and move around following a routine.
But what you decide to do on this island is entirely up to you. Will you be a villain, a hero or a selfish schemer? Will you ensure everlasting peace or push for mutually assured destruction?
With Witchstone, Spearhead Games intends to push the interactive storytelling further with adventures uniquely tailored to each player’s gameplay and dialogue decisions.
Using actions common in RPGs (dialogue, combat, spells, abilities, stat checks, stealing, etc.) and less common ones (stealth, influence interface, etc.), you can interact, manipulate, and shape this world as you see fit.
In a living and reactive world, players will be offered unprecedented options to roleplay their character and influence their environment, capturing the fun and freedom of a pen & paper RPG campaign.
- A living world sandbox RPG
- Fun and freedom of pen & paper RPG campaigns
- Impact the state of the world with your gameplay actions
- An interactive adventure story that is uniquely your own
- Turn-based tactical combat
