Sacred Fire is a psychological choice-driven RPG coming to Steam in 2021
Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Poetic have announced that psychological RPG Sacred Fire will launch in 2021 for PC via Steam. The game is also planned for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the future.
O riginally Kickstarted in 2017, Sacred Fire is set in a world inspired by ancient Caledonia, where you must fight back against an upcoming Roman invasion. In a community post on Steam, game author Andrej Vojtas discusses how he wants to capture the flow of a pen-and-paper role-playing session. This means less grinding/looting and more decision making.
