History Of The Project

Firecast Studio began the development of Sword Legacy: Omen in 2014. The small studio, comprised of only four people, was prototyping new mechanics for a tactical turn-based game. After verifying its potential, a partnership was formed in 2015 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 development of the game as its main priority.

Story & Gameplay

A once-thriving kingdom full of alchemical and technological advances, now fragmented by intrigue and deceit. When murder and betrayal assault the lord of Mercia, a guilt-ridden knight and an eldritch sorcerer set on a journey of vengeance to discover the mysterious origin of a plague and dispense justice by fulfilling an ancient prophecy.

These are dark times. The lord of Mercia has been assassinated, your love kidnapped, and your home is no more. As the leader of the party, you assume the role of Uther and his seven companions. Throughout your quest, you will have to face many trials and forge uneasy alliances in order acquire the mythical Excalibur sword and defeat the sinister and power-obsessed duke of Wessex.

Prove your worth as a tactician by exploring all five realms and dangerous locations, such as villages, dungeons, forests, and much more. Survive ambushes and rescue those in need by making use of each character’s abilities to solve riddles 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 characters at a time per quest. However, be ready to adapt and improvise because combat results always change based on the chosen abilities and the chances of landing an attack.
