The legendary Sorcery! series is coming to the Nintendo Switch thanks to a partnership between No Gravity Games and British developer, inkle. You may know them as the folks behind the groundbreaking narrative game, 80 Days. They’re now bringing Sorcery! parts 1-4 to the Switch sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Brought to life by the British development studio, inkle, and Steve Jackson, Sorcery! is a narrative adventure that is based on text in a world loaded with magic, monsters, and traps. You may know Steve as the writer and award-winning developer of classics like Warlock of Firetop Mountain, The Citadel of Chaos, and Creature of Havoc. The series originally launched on PC back in 1983 and later on mobile platforms.
The player will craft their own unique adventure through the choices they make, a story built from the game’s one million words of dynamic content. Players can also take on each part individually, or play them as a connected, much longer narrative.
If you want to try out the series now, you can head over to the following links for Steam and mobile. All four parts are available on all of these places. The newly upcoming Nintendo Switch version will arrive sometime in Q3 2021.
