Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! arrives on iOS

Do you have the strength, wits, and courage to withstand the dangers of the Shamutanti Hills?

Steve Jackson's Sorcery!

Here at EF we’ve fond memories of Steve Jackson’s cult classic Sorcery! gamebooks from the early 80’s. Now some 20 years later they are returning in a brand new format and aiming to give you an interactive story experience like no other.

Developed by British indie studio inkle, Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! for iOS is a brand new type of game that merges an epic fantasy plotline with an incredible amount of player choice. You decide which path to take on a treacherous quest to reclaim the prized Crown of Kings – and the story writes itself around you.

On this fantastic journey, you’ll explore a gorgeously illustrated world populated with dangerous foes and fabulous beasts. Puzzle your way out of sticky situations. Compete in strategic turn-based combat or try your luck with magic. The game remembers every single decision you make and uses them to pen your own distinct adventure.

[quote by=”Steve Jackson, co-creator of the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series and author of the original Sorcery! “]I am blown away by what inkle have done with Sorcery! Previous digital conversions recreated the paperback experience on the small screen, but this treatment is a radical new approach.[/quote]

Together, Jackson and inkle added a whole new dimension to the experience, with thousands of extra choices, an original combat system that procedurally describes the fight as you play, and a 3D map over which the journey is made — alongside 48 spells, 77 original line illustrations, and all the characters, tricks, and traps of the original adventure.

Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! is available as a Universal App for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and can be downloaded for £2.99 ($4.99) from the App Store. EF hope to bring you a full review later this month but for more information check out the official website.
