Curve Digital and Solar Sail Games is about to launch its survival adventure, Smoke and Sacrifice, on May 31st on PC and Nintendo Switch for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99, with a 20% discount for its first 2 weeks of sale.
To give players a taste of what to expect – as well as a few tips to get started – Curve have put together a “7 Things You Might Not Know About Smoke and Sacrifice” video to get players started. Smoke and Sacrifice features an extremely robust, dynamic ecosystem and you’re not going to last long unless you know how to tame predators, clear fog, poison foes, bait beasts, and siphon ectoplasm.
Smoke and Sacrifice is an open-world, 40 hour narrative-driven RPG following the tale of a woman named Sachi whose young child has just been sacrificed in a ritual to the Sun Tree, the only source of light in a world where the sun has waned out. Convinced that her baby is still alive, Sachi journeys to an expansive underworld, full of grotesque creatures and an all enshrouding fog in search of her lost child.
This strange and mysterious realm is complete with its own functioning ecosystem, in which flora and fauna consume one another and reproduce based on the population. You’ll need to learn how to tame the wilds by trapping creatures, baiting beasts, training animal companions, and disguising yourself from predators. It’s only by fighting, crafting, exploring, and out-thinking this harsh wilderness that you’ll uncover the fate of your child and the mystery behind your village’s sacrifices.
