Sacred Fire crowdfunding campaign raises $65,000

Poetic Studios smashes through three stretch goals in final hours and is on track for multi-platform launch during 2018

Bratislava, Slovakia – April 18, 2017/… Independent developer Poetic Studio’s Kickstarter campaign for Sacred Fire has successfully concluded by reaching its three stretch goals in the final hours. As a result, the narrative-based, psychological RPG for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will include extended character customization, and expanded voice-over content for the main player character and key supporting cast.

Set for release on PC in Spring 2018 (with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to follow afterwards), Sacred Fire surpassed its initial funding target of $50,000 USD, and concluded its Kickstarter campaign by raising exactly $65,000 USD.

About Sacred Fire

Set to be voiced by the vocal talent of Doug Cockle (Geralt from The Witcher 3), Sacred Fire is a game about survival, power and hope, where players lead a band of resistance fighters in Caledonia (ancient Scotland) against the invading Roman Empire. Sacred Fire is not just about the outer, physical struggle for survival, but also about gaining political influence and the pursuit of inner balance, all of which will be presented in a distinctive cinematic art style created by Poetic Studio.

Press assets, including gameplay videos, can be downloaded here .

Using Poetic Studio’s custom “ Emotions & Motivations” storytelling platform, players can resolve conflicts in Sacred Fire by using a combination of smarts, skill, looks or empathy. To do so, they must build inner balance by coping with things such as fear and anger. Only a stable and strong personality can win respect with bravery in combat, deal with the political turmoil within their own ranks and rise above the fog of war to lead Caledonia to her fate. Will you embrace revenge and forcefully bring about freedom for yourself and your people – or will you fight for a better world through courage, sacrifice and diplomacy?

Poetic Studio’s ambitious debut, which deliberately avoided a fantasy setting, has already garnered industry interest and praise from the likes of Chris Avellone ( Fallout New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenera), Arnie Jorgensen ( The Banner Saga series) and Rhianna Pratchett ( Rise of the Tomb Raider).
