505 Games and N-Fusion Interactive has recently unleashed the latter’s 10-year passion project, Ember. This title, now available through Steam, pays homage to classic RPGs, blending the style, elements, and adventures with N-Fusion’s proprietary 3D engine.
Ember is set in the world of Domus as the Lightbringers, an ancient race of primordial druids, brought light to the land with the use of a fallen star that embodies magical flame, light, and life, known as Embers. As these spread light throughout the land, whispers surrounding the amount of power these Embers contained became louder, and men began hunting and utilizing the remaining Embers to grow even more powerful. Domus is now in a state of constant conflict over the dying Embers, and now it is up to you, a lone Lightbringer who has been resurrected, to protect them and keep the world awash in light. Here are the key features:
- Over 20 distinct and handcrafted environments with 70 unique quests, hundreds of NPCs and epic storytelling that brings a deep and branching story in an old-school RPG style;
- Party-based real-time combat with tactical pause enabled for players looking to plan their next attack with over 65 combat abilities at their disposal and a number of companions that travel with the Lightbringer – all with their own backstory to witness;
- An in-depth crafting system with more than 150 items to create, ranging from freshly-baked bread to newly forged magical weapons.
