Sword Legacy Press Kit
Embark on a bloody, brutal re-imagining of the King Arthur mythos as Uther, a vengeful knight aided by Merlin, an eldritch sorcerer, in search of the long-lost Excalibur. Survive intense turn-based combat in this tactical RPG as you travel Broken Britannia, a land devastated by intrigue and deceit.
History Of The Project
Firecast Studio began the development of Sword Legacy: Omen in 2014. The small studio, comprised of only four people, began by prototyping new mechanics for a tactical turn-based game. After developing a fun and challenging gameplay, in 2015 a partnership was formed with Fableware Narrative Design, another independent studio focused on story driven experiences. Ever since the project has evolved into a transmedia intellectual property with the game as its first and main product. In 2016, Sword Legacy: Omen participated in several events and won prestigious prizes, among them the award for Best Storytelling at the SB Games Festival. Finally, in 2017 a publishing partnership was established with Team17 (developer of the famous Worms franchise) and since then the project has been progressing towards its release date.
Story & Gameplay
"Before Arthur’s Golden Age, our realm was lost, shattered and decadent; kingdoms torn apart by blind selfishness. A broken Britannia, void of hope."
The lord of Mercia has been assassinated, your love kidnapped and your home is no more. As Uther, the disgraced Knight Commander, you must lead your misfit band of companions throughout quests riddled with trials. Forge uneasy alliances to acquire the mythical Excalibur sword and defeat the sinister power-obsessed duke of Wessex.
Prove your worth as a tactician by exploring all five realms and dangerous locations, such as a frozen fortress hiding a dark secret, an ancient abbey turned into a hideous torture chamber and the mystical island of Avalon. Survive ambushes and rescue those in need by making use of each hero’s abilities to solve puzzles and vanquish your foes. It is up to you define the fate of Britannia… But at what cost?
Combat in Sword Legacy: Omen is always a challenge. As a strategist, you will need to plan your course of action with four heroes at a time. However, be ready to adapt and improvise because results always change based on the chosen abilities and chances of landing an attack.
