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-drawn style, Smoke and Sacrifice’s storybook visuals belie its brutal story of motherhood and survival. Sachi doesn’t just have to worry about the the game’s antagonists - the entire game world poses a threat. Players can alter the behaviour 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 behaviour.
Smoke and Sacrifice will launch on May 31st 2018 for PC and Nintendo Switch for £19.99 / $24.99 / €24.99 with a 20% discount for its first 2 weeks of sale. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow in 2018.
