Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! became a cult classic when released as a gamebook in the 1980s. The series has now been brought back to life in four parts for Windows and Mac by inkle.

Go on a journey across a dangerous land during which every choice you make will impact the story. Experience modern interactive fiction, adaptive storytelling and strategic turn-based combat. 

Starting February 2nd, begin your adventure in the dangerous Shamutanti Hills and continue through the twisted city of Kharé. Travel a path you’ll choose on the game’s lushly illustrated map.

Battle fantastic beasts, outsmart wily tricksters, puzzle through devious traps, master a massive book of spells and try your luck in the dice bluffing game Swindlestones while pressing forward to recover the stolen Crown of Kings and claim a hero’s prize. Sorcery! is to be released as follows on Windows and Mac:

~February 2: Parts 1 and 2 as a combined game (The Shamutanti Hills, The Cityport of Traps) on Steam
~Spring 2016: Part 3 (The Seven Serpents)
~Later this year: Part 4, cross-platform for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
