Smoke and Sacrifice is a brand-new survival RPG coming this year

Curve Digital has announced a brand-new survival RPG called Smoke and Sacrifice, being developed by London-based studio Solar Sail Games.

The game is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch in 2018, with Curve handling publishing duties.

A press release has revealed more details about the game:

“[Smoke and Sacrifice] takes place in a darkly fantastical world where grotesque plant-life and animals roam and harsh societal customs rule. 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.”

Tancred Dyke-Wells, co-founder of Solar Sail Games, commented on the announcement. “We’re thrilled to finally announce Smoke and Sacrifice after keeping the project to ourselves for so long. With both myself and Neil Millstone having produced games for major studios, Smoke and Sacrifice is an opportunity for us go back to our roots and create a genuinely intimate story in a compelling world,” he said.

“We wanted to combine a meaningful narrative with the challenges of survival gameplay. Discovering ways to influence this creepy, organic world to your advantage is key to pursuing your ultimate quest.”

We can’t wait to see how players react to this beautifully told story.”
