Creators of the “Frostpunk” and “Witcher” Remakes Reveal the Mystical Turn-Based Role-Playing Game “The Thaumaturge”
We have something exciting to share if you’ve been looking for a new turn-based role-playing game to get enthusiastic about. The Thaumaturge is a story-rich PC game that is being released by 11 Bit Studios (Frostpunk) and Fool’s Theory (The Witcher 1 Remake). It takes place in early 20th-century Warsaw.
Thaumaturge is a phrase that refers to the ancient Greek word meaning a worker of wonders and performer of miracles, which should naturally inspire a variety of gaming concepts and implementations. The isometric RPG will “touch upon the complex concept of inner demons, with a novel perspective on combat, character growth elements, and investigative systems.”
Warsaw, which takes place in 1905, is ruled by the tsardom of imperial Russia. The Russian military, Jewish businessmen, Poles, and others make up its population, which is diverse in terms of ancestry, worldview, and religious beliefs.
The Thaumaturge evolves around the concept of demons on both literal and metaphorical levels, according to Karolina Kuzia-Rokosz, design director for Fool’s Theory. After all, the game is filled with the notion of meaningful enjoyment from 11 Bit Studios. Playthrough mechanisms or narrative elements are only some of the places that the game’s subject is alluded to.
Thaumaturges, people skilled in taming spirit-like creatures called Salutors, are an important force in the game who may be utilized to influence other players’ temperaments and affinities and even in actual combat. Only Thaumaturges have a complete understanding of the Salutors’ nature, and only they are capable of seeing them for what they truly are. Although Thaumaturgy is a power that should be handled with caution, its capacity to affect others considerably and demonstrably boosts their potential to transform the world around them.
There are still a few other specifics regarding the game, but because The Thaumaturge will be present at the Game Developers Conference next month, we may anticipate more of an update. Given the track record of the developers, it ought to be, to put it mildly, an intriguing proposition.
