Stingbot Games’ The Forbidden Arts is an action adventure platformer with a deep lore and focus on discovery and exploration coming to Steam Early Access on Feb 7th. When the hero of the game, Phoenix, seeks the counsel of a druid to make sense of his visions, she awakens the latent pyromancy within him. This begins an epic journey from Phoenix’s humble beginnings to leading a powerful party on a mission to save the world of Chora from the blight of an evil necromancer.
Phoenix will embark on quests, solve puzzles, discover long-forgotten secrets, and battle enemies in a grand adventure of ancient magic. By controlling the power of fire within, Phoenix will discover new ways to take down enemies and bosses, as well as understand his inner flame.
Full of action, suspense, comedy and unexpected twists and turns, The Forbidden Arts takes place in a magical realm combining eastern and western culture and is brought to life with a bright and colorful art style accentuated by an acoustic guitar soundtrack.
The Forbidden Arts is currently in an alpha development stage and is being developed for PC, Playstation 4, XBox One, and Nintendo Switch.
