The Forbidden Arts, an action adventure platformer, has been summoned onto Steam Early Access. Wizards who prefer to work their magic on consoles can look forward to Q1 2019 when Stingbot Games brings their title to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One simultaneously alongside the complete PC launch.
Phoenix, a young man with newfound pyromancy abilities, sets out to protect the world of Chora from a looming evil. By joining forces with other valiant souls he can confront the evil necromancer Voltaire and his horde of undead.
To overcome the enemies that stand in his way, Phoenix will channel his inner flame – launching fireballs, conjuring elemental shields, and propelling himself into the air in this epic adventure full of action, suspense, and comedy.
Quests, puzzles, mini-games, and long-forgotten secrets await Phoenix and his companions on their travels through Chora. This magical realm delicately combines western and eastern cultures, given life by a vibrant and colorful art style, with an acoustic guitar soundtrack.
“Chora is a magical world full of mystery and wonder, with many more surprises on the way,” says Sterling Selover, founder and visionary, Stingbot Games. “Our Early Access players will help us shape Phoenix’s journey and strengthen him for the challenges ahead.”
The Forbidden Arts is currently available for $9.99 USD in English. Other localizations will come during the full launch next year. New content will be added regularly, with the first major update due out in the next few weeks. The price of The Forbidden Arts will rise as it approaches release, but early adopters will receive all added content at no extra cost.
