Team17 announced today that they have partnered with Brazilian based developers Firecast Studio and Fableware Narrative Design to publish their new game Sword Legacy: Omen.
Sword Legacy: Omen is a challenging turn-based tactical RPG. Team17 have stated that “Sword Legacy: Omen is set in the candlepunk realm of Broken Britannia, a once-thriving kingdom full of alchemical and technological advances now fragmented by intrigue and deceit. As the vengeful knight, Uther, and his misfit band of companions, players will embark on a thrilling journey to locate the long-lost Excalibur. In this bloody, brutal take on the Arthurian legend, players will explore rich environments, experience a riveting storyline and survive intense turn-based tactical combat to define the fate of Britannia.”
According to Team17’s press release the partnership between Firecast and Fableware is the first time the publisher has ventured into the Brazilian games development scene. Team17’s CEO Debbie Bestwick, MBE stated that “Our label aims to work with the best independent creators around the world, help them build new IP and aim for sustainability. We’ve stepped up our international side significantly this year with recently announced partners in North America, Germany and Sweden. It’s a pleasure to welcome Firecast and Fableware to our ever growing family of partners as our first Brazilian team. There’s so much local talent being showcased at BIG Festival this week, we’re very excited to be working together with both teams. Sword Legacy: Omen is a high quality turn-based tactical game created by two very talented teams that brings another different angle to our diverse games label.”
Sword Legacy: Omen will launch on PC in 2017.
