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.

Finally, here is a handful of screenshots of Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! in action:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
