About Sorcery! 3
 
Part 3 of Steve Jackson's Sorcery! will release for iPhone/iPad and Android on April 16
 
Spun off from the Steve Jackson's Sorcery! gamebooks of the 1980s, Sorcery! 3 is a narrative game with a massively branching, choice-driven storyline. With the city of Kharé at your back and the sacred Crown of Kings driving you forward, this penultimate chapter provides the most challenge yet as you attempt to cross the cruel, cursed wasteland of Kakhabad. With rations dwindling and seven deadly serpents stalking you around the desert, only the most resourceful adventurers will survive. And with no set path to follow and time rippling like a flag on the wind, this adventure could lead you in circles or a thousand years into the past.
 
Each Sorcery! chapter stands alone and can be played "fresh" simply by starting a new game. Or, you can import your saved game from Sorcery! 2 to retain your character's stats and see the consequences of your prior choices. Importing the saved game should be a straightforward process following the on-screen prompts, but let me know if you run into any difficulties.
 

By this point in the adventure, there are some major story branches that will lead to very different outcomes. If you need a saved game to play around with, you can enter this name on the import screen: CATABA

This will continue a game where Kharé was destroyed by Goblins and the hero was cursed by the wizard Lorag -- your experience will be very different than if you're starting the game fresh!
