The onslaught of quality eShop games for Nintendo Switch continues with Smoke And Sacrifice, which is being published by Curve Digital and has been developed by London-based independent studio, Solar Sail Games.
In the game players assume the role of Sachi, a young mother on a quest to discover the fate of her child. The game takes place in a darkly fantastical world where grotesque plant-life and animals roam and harsh societal customs rule. Taking cues from modern survival classics, Smoke And Sacrifice evolves the genre with its deeply personal story and complex ecosystem. Creatures forage, mate, breed and prey on one another, creating a living world. Only by taming the game’s wilds can Sachi hope to unravel the mystery at the heart of Smoke and Sacrifice.
Tancred Dyke-Wells, Co-Founder of Solar Sail Games exclaimed:
We’re thrilled to finally announce Smoke and Sacrifice after keeping the project to ourselves for so long. With both myself and Neil Millstone having produced games for major studios, Smoke and Sacrifice is an opportunity for us go back to our roots and create a genuinely intimate story in a compelling world. We wanted to combine a meaningful narrative with the challenges of survival gameplay. Discovering ways to influence this creepy, organic world to your advantage is key to pursuing your ultimate quest.
Simon Byron, Publishing Director at Curve Digital excitedly said:
We’re really excited to be partnering with Solar Sail Games to publish Smoke and Sacrifice later this year. Neil and Tancred have done a remarkable job in bringing this world to life and evolving the survival gameplay that is resonating so deeply with players at this moment. We can’t wait to see how players react to this beautifully told story.
Smoke And Sacrifice will launch on Nintendo Switch along with various other platforms later this year. Check out the trailer above and let us know if you plan to pick this up with a comment below.
