The World is on Fire

When slavers attack your settlement, you and a young girl, allegedly cursed, become separated from everyone else. Is she just a troubled child or does she pose a threat?

You quickly realize the slavers are not the only danger; Rome has crossed the wall in full force. Your only hope is to reach Dunadd, a seat of power, and unite the tribes.

But first you need to warn Wid, your loyal brother and the only family you have left. Besides the memories of a father you would rather forget and those of a mother you struggle to hold on to.

Can you survive? Can you save those close to you? Can you cling to the hope of a better world?

Beyond survival, beyond revenge, your true fight begins.


Sacred Fire has 8 non-playable characters that your player character can ally with.

Vote for Your Favorite Character

Until the game releases, we’re giving Sacred Fire fans a way to affect the initial in-game influence of all the characters. Choose between characters that want to vengefully crush Rome, or those who want to survive Rome and build a nation.

Sacred Fire is full of scenarios where a group of characters decide how to best apply their collective strength. You, the player, are always free to choose your own path. It just makes things easier if you have allies, or harder if you fight alone.

Politics adds a turn-based strategy aspect to the game. Each character’s influence raises and falls based on renown, wealth and allies gained or lost as the story unfolds.
