About Sorcery! Part 3: The Seven Serpents

Spun off from the popular gamebooks of the 1980s, Steve Jackson's Sorcery! 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, Sorcery! Part 3: The Seven Serpents provides the toughest challenge yet as you attempt to cross the cruel, cursed wasteland of Kakhabad.

Inspired by inkle's globe-trotting adventure 80 Days, Sorcery! Part 3 is a non-linear game that lets players plot a unique path across two gorgeous 3D maps and shape the narrative with every decision made. With rations dwindling and seven deadly serpents stalking you through a barren desert, only the most resourceful heroes will survive. And with no set path to follow and time itself rippling like a flag on the wind, your quest could lead you around in circles -- or a thousand years into the past.

In this highly flexible interactive narrative, every choice comes at a price and many will impact Sorcery!'s climactic final chapter... that is, if you survive to reach it. A standalone download (not DLC), Sorcery! Part 3 can be enjoyed fresh or as a continuation of previous Sorcery! installments, with cross-platform cloud saves enabling the consequences of your past choices to be woven into the story.

inkle's Sorcery! series will conclude later this year with Part 4: The Crown of Kings releasing simultaneously on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.
