Today, Stingbot Games announced that it will release its action-adventure game The Forbidden Arts for Steam Early Access on February 7. The game will also be released on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in 2019, which will also be when the game exits the Early Access phase.
When the hero of the game, Phoenix, seeks the counsel of a druid to make sense of his visions, she awakens the latent pyromancy within him. This begins an epic journey from Phoenix’s humble beginnings to leading a powerful party on a mission to save the world of Chora from the blight of a powerful necromancer.
Phoenix will embark on quests, solve puzzles, discover long-forgotten secrets, and battle enemies in a grand adventure of ancient magic. By controlling the power of fire within, Phoenix will discover new ways to take down enemies and bosses, as well as understand his inner flame.
Full of action, suspense, comedy and unexpected twists and turns,The Forbidden Art takes place in a magical realm combining western and eastern culture and is brought to life with a bright and colorful art style accentuated by an acoustic guitar soundtrack.
“The Forbidden Arts is, at its heart, a tale of a young man trying to find himself,” says Sterling Selover, founder and visionary, Stingbot Games. “Through overcoming physical and mental challenges with the help of his companions, Phoenix will learn of the true power within.”
The Forbidden Arts will be available on Steam this February for $9.99, with the price increasing as content is added. Stay tuned for more news here on Gaming Trend.
