Yesterday at The Escapist Indie Showcase 2021 developers Poetic Studio and publisher Iceberg Interactive announced their anticipated Psychological RPG Sacred Fire will enter Early Access on Steam Tuesday October 19th!
Every choice counts in the brand-new trailer...
Featuring Doug Cockle, voice of Geralt in the Witcher franchise, in Sacred Fire, you’re cast as a refugee hunted by Rome, your actions compromised by fear and rage. Build up your willpower to control story choices and master battle tactics. Outsmart opponents and gain allies. Wage war or strive for peace. End up a hero or an outcast.
The free demo available now on Steam features the first chapter of the story, which plays differently when you select a male or female protagonist. Writer Jennie Kong contributed to Sacred Fire’s story to create nuanced but meaningful differences between the two perspectives. The demo features Doug Cockle, Michelle Gonzo, and Ben Britton as important story NPCs.

The first of three acts will be available on Early Access launch, with the other two being added as major free updates. Poetic aims to involve the community in the development of the game, fleshing out the story while incorporating feedback. Early Access will be English only, and localization will begin once the story is finalized.
