Ember Released

Publisher 505 Games and developer N-Fusion Interactive (known for Deus Ex: The Fall) have released a new “classic-style” role-playing game entitled Ember that draws inspiration from the Ultima series with fully interactive and movable objects, as well as the Infinity Engine series for its combat and companion mechanics. The RPG is available on Steam for $9.99 (15% off for a limited time), with an iOS version coming soon. How about a launch trailer?

And the game’s description:

Fate. A power beyond anything man can possess. It was fate that lit up the sky one night and changed the course of history. It was fate that brought Domus to the brink.

Long ago, there was a lasting peace in Domus. The Druids, Humans, Elves, and Dwarves lived in harmony, sharing all that the land had to offer. But all of that changed the night the Embers lit up the sky, billions of tiny glowing beings falling to the earth. Magic had come to Domus, and the allure of power along with it. The Druids realized this and became the Lightbringers, protectors of Ember, and shepherds of magic. But the other races grew jealous, leading to war and the annihilation of the Lightbringers, and the eventual enslavement of the Embers.

Now, thousands of years later, the world stands upon the brink of destruction. The Ember’s are dying off, and the lust for their dwindling power is tearing the kingdoms apart. But deep in a dark barrow a being stirs who can change the world. Is is too late? Can Domus be saved?
