It’s been a while since there has been a new RPG on GOG.com shelves, but today we offer Soulbringer on GOG.com for only $5.99.
Let’s conduct a little thought excercise here: If you were an average person living in the mystical world of Rathenna and your father was killed and your uncle Adrus turned out to know a lot about magic, ancient warriors, and demons, would you rather:
a) ignore your crazy uncle, live on a farm, raise a family, and live a long and boring life or,
b) learn magic, learn sword-wielding, awaken your powers inherited from your past lives, and slay ancient demons, preserving the world for all?
Those of you who decided that option “a” sounds a little too dull have a chance to jump into the fantasy world of Soulbringer, an action RPG in the spirit of other classic hack and slash games of the era.
Soulbringer is one of those “hidden gems” that we love to bring up to the surface here on GOG. It was buried in an avalanche of other fantastic cRPGs released in the year 2000 (Diablo II, Icewind Dale, and Baldur’s Gate II all came out that year!), but if it had been released in a different year, it would likely also be one of the classic RPGs we all know and love. The things that make a well-crafted piece of action fantasy gaming, like a unique combat system, well-constructed magic, a long and involving storyline, and the indefinable ‘joy factor’ are all here and make Soulbringer the perfect addition to your fantasy/RPG shelf.
Soulbringer is the kind of RPG that offers a lot of action and fun and is definitely worth buying on GOG.com for only $5.99.
