Sorcery! Part 4 - The Crown of Kings - is coming...

An epic adventure through a land of monsters, traps and magic, first imagined by gamebook pioneer Steve Jackson back in 1983, is about to reach its suitably epic conclusion with the release of Sorcery! Part 4: The Crown of Kings from inkle studios.

The Sorcery! series gave people a brand new way to experience an epic fantasy adventure. Now, more than thirty years on, inkle, the master storytellers behind the groundbreaking narrative game 80 Days, have brought the adventure up to date in an unparallelled adaptation.

Spanning four interconnected games, players weave their own unique tale of adventure, daring, luck and cunning from a million words of dynamic content and tens of thousands of decisions. Each part can be played separately, or strung together, with consequences of decisions that span the whole series. IGN called the game “a prime example of what can happen when traditional storytelling gets along with contemporary game design”.

Part 4: The Crown of Kings will be released for desktop and mobile on September 15th, 2016, and will be released simultaneously on Steam, the iOS App Store and Google Play.

Just check out the screenshots below for a taster of what you can expect on the quest ahead...
