What is it?
Sorceress is a first-person action-adventure game with a strong focus on flexible systems and emergent gameplay. It's a take on immersive sim freeform style of gameplay where magic is dynamic and can be used for much more than dealing a large amount of damage.
Highly dynamic environment: every barrel is a physics object, every torch is dousable, every plant is burnable
Heavy focus on improvisation: cast magic, kick enemies, kick objects, steal your enemies weapons, toss them back at them... every encounter is a beautiful mess
Run, dash, swim and climb (ladders), gracefully surpass every obstacle in Salguro's Castle and unlock its many hidden passages and shortcuts
Collect Weapons, Boots, Witch Hats, Potion Recipes and more, expand your arsenal and adjust your loadout as you see fit
Unveil the evil plots of The Witches of Salguro and get ready to suffer the products of their experiments and fight their minions
Bioshock and Dark Messiah for their magic systems, character progression and copious amount of kicking action
