Just head to our freshly baked Sacred Fire Indiegogo page and become a part of the community, which appreciates innovative RPGs.

What kept us busy

Right after our Kickstarter we went to the Reboot Develop conference to meet potential partners and publishers who approached us during our campaign. Things are looking very promising! We’ll keep you updated.

Andrej is currently fine tuning the script for Sacred Fire. I’ve read the first couple of chapters and it’s fascinating to see all the characters from our Kickstarter page coming alive in a fast-flowing story. The choices and decisions you make are deep and intriguing. I really love how everything you do develops your character and builds or harms relationships with others, just like in real life.

Sacred Fire Kickstarter will launch on March 15
Description
OFFICIAL GREENLIGHT IS ONLINE RIGHT NOW OVER HERE! Official Greenlight Link

Sacred Fire is a turn-based, psychological RPG about survival, power, and the search for meaning, inspired by ancient Caledonia.

Build your will to show courage in battle and cunning in the throne room. Rise through renown, blackmail, or loyalty. Inspire others to crush Rome or to build a nation.







  • Use tactical thinking in a story full of risk-based choices and combat.
  • Enjoy a fast flow of narrative twists and turns.
  • Inspired by the pen & paper RPG experience, explore NPCs’ motives, stay in character and play to your strong sides.
  • Choose how to solve conflicts: use force, smarts, skill, looks or empathy.
  • Express your take on story events in inner monologues shaping your personality and inner strength.
  • Manage your relationships and renown to increase your impact on the story.
  • No magic, no dragons: solve real conflicts, fueled by real motives, with real solutions. Your heart hides all the monsters.







At its core, Sacred Fire is a game focused on narrative, choice and consequences, with focus on internal and interpersonal conflicts. Develop your character, engage in tactical combat, and maintain relationships with those around you.

Sacred Fire gives you tactical options like:
  • Should I boost my chances to say something smart, or save the willpower to deal with my traumatic memories?
  • Do I craft a new weapon, donate the resources to the healer, or organize a feast?
  • Do I deal with the envy for my brother, or that dislikeable bully, or my attraction to that femme fatale?









For as long as your people can remember, Rome tried to conquer your lands, but failed every time. To put an end to this costly conflict and to display their power, Rome built a monumental wall.

You are young in age but come from a long line of elders. Can you unite the tribes behind a vision stronger than war? Or will you lead them to crush Rome?

The time to choose has come as Rome crossed the wall in full force. Beyond survival, beyond revenge, your true fight begins.









Dunadd, an ancient seat of power, is the only place where you can gain allies and build a resistance against Rome.

The Fort functions as a long-term strategy aspect of the game. There you can use your hard earned willpower points, renown, and resources to compete in the influence race and prepare for the challenges ahead.

You can also interact with NPCs to remove states blocking a relationship. Inside the Fort you can use relationship insights to build friendship, blackmail, or discredit a character.









At the start of Sacred Fire, you have no influence. With no wealth and no renown, you will find it hard to make allies. Gain influence through combat, courage, crafting, healing, appearance or relations.

Rising to the top and swaying key story choices (like changing battle plans to rescue a beloved character) is hard, but also rewarding, unlocking otherwise hidden storylines.

Will you:
  • build your own influence to rise as a leader?
  • use secrets to manipulate those in power?
  • or build genuine friendships based on loyalty or romance?








There are 8 characters who can be your allies in Sacred Fire.



There are 2 powerful enemy leaders you have to defy.







At www . SacredFireGame᠎᠎ . com you can now vote for your favorite character to raise their in-game influence.

Choose between characters that want to vengefully crush Rome, or those who want to survive Rome and build a nation. This way you can have a powerful, like-minded NPC ally inside the game.

In Sacred Fire, you craft your own personal experience with the story, so you are always free to choose your own path. It just makes things easier if an NPC has your back, or harder if you fight alone.



Vote now at www . SacredFireGame ᠎᠎. com.
