Pixelated Milk, the creators of Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs and Warsaw, announced the RPG SacriFire during the PC Gaming Show at E3 2021.
The game is currently being fundraised on Kickstarter, but has plans to launch on PC, Switch and PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
Developers said SacriFire will feature a unique blend of real-time and turn-based combat.
“The team here at Pixelated Milk is incredibly excited to be announcing the Kickstarter launch for SacriFire, our upcoming JRPG-inspired title,” said Bartosz Łojewski, Project Lead at Pixelated Milk. “Beautiful retro pixel art, a blend of real-time and turn-based combat, and music by Motoi Sakuraba are all going to come together in a game that is a love letter to games we loved. Players will encounter memorable characters, an underground city, a world of spirits, a war between gods and demons, and one soldier’s ultimate test of faith, you know… everything a good JPRG needs! We’re seeking 82,000 euros on Kickstarter to help fund this ambitious project, but the sky is the limit!”
The project is a little more than halfway funded to the goal with 29 days to go.
SacriFire tells the story of Ezekiel Ridan, a young soldier training to join an elite sect of holy warriors who keep the subterranean city of Antioch safe from demons roaming the surface above. The theft of a mysterious relic sets Ezekiel on an adventure that will lead to places he would never have imagined, where he’ll uncover secrets that cause him to question everything he believes. A struggle thousands of years in the making is about to unfold.
Ezekiel and his companions battle through demons, cultists, and ancient automatons using shapeshifting weaponry and special attacks that uncover and target enemy weaknesses. Surviving battles requires more than hacking away—every enemy type is weak to different types of weapon damage which becomes more effective as attacks are chained together
