Smoke and Sacrifice developer Solar Sail Games has released a new behind-the-scenes video, giving us an opportunity to explore the game in a bit more detail.

The video features gameplay footage and discussions with key team members who talk about what makes the game's blend of narrative with survival and RPG gameplay truly compelling. The game is an open-world, narrative-driven experience where exploiting living ecosystems is the key to survival. You'll need to craft, fight, survive, and fully explore the hand-painted, gothic world to progress.

This world is set in an expansive underworld where grotesque creatures consume each other, pollinate plants, and reproduce in a functioning ecosystem. Players must watch carefully to discover ways to exploit these relationships to their advantage. You'll be playing as Sachi, whose tale sounds incredibly intriguing.

"Sachi’s home is the one tiny patch of fertile land which remains, surrounded by icy wasteland. Her farming community survives only thanks to their devotion to the blazing Sun Tree, which replaces the light of the failed sun. After sacrificing her firstborn child to the Sun Tree, Sachi discovers a darker secret - will she discover the truth of what happened to her son, or perish in the swirling, deadly smoke of the underworld?"

Smoke and Sacfirice will launch on Nintendo Switch for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99 on 31st May, with a 20% discount available for its first 2 weeks of sale.
