'Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God' (PSV) Announced

Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God tells the tale of a young, aspiring sorceress named Pupuru who is on a quest to save her friend's curry restaurant from the big bad curry chain that's moved in.

With the help (or not so much help) of a cast of wacky and strange characters — including the grumpy-but-lovable creature, Kuu — Pupuru’s quest to find ingredients to make the legendary curry becomes a delectable adventure fun for just about anyone.

Despite Sorcery Saga’s quirky and cute storyline, it offers players truly challenging gameplay. Sorcery Saga is more than just heading to your local curry house and eating tasty morsels of deliciousness; it’s a turn-based RPG that allows players to move freely around a dungeon in a grid-like system. Once players encounter an enemy, they’ll be able to attack or use items or skills to fend off the onslaught of creatures. Let’s delve deeper into Sorcery Saga’s gameplay and see what this game is all about!

Sorcery Saga is a roguelike dungeon crawler. Fundamentally, roguelike gameplay gives players permanent consequences for failing or dying. In Sorcery Saga, this means that once a player falls in a dungeon, the items he/she possesses and the levels he/she have accrued through play are all gone! Players will be able to continue with the storyline, but will need to re-acquire lost items and levels. Players will need to determine their strategy before they enter a dungeon because even saving won’t help them. Luckily, Sorcery Saga offers a couple of ways to mitigate this.

Key Features:

  • Make Your Own Curry!: Curry not only offers the backdrop for Sorcery Saga’s wacky storyline, it’s actually quite helpful while in dungeons. If players are able to acquire certain ingredients, Pupuru can make her own curry, which will give her temporary power-ups to battle particularly tough baddies.
  • Let Kuu Save the Day!: If Pupuru falls and Kuu is still alive, it will save Pupuru’s equipped items. This means if Pupuru has powerful weaponry equipped, she won’t lose it as long as Kuu is alive.
  • My Room is Your Room!: The My Room function in Sorcery Saga allows players to store items, money, and equipment. This is particularly useful before entering dungeons since players can store unneeded or precious items. These items will be spared if a player falls in a dungeon.
  • Power Up Your Weaponry!: In “My Room,” players can also enhance their weapons by using acquired items throughout the game. Giving Pupuru a little boost never hurt anyone!

Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God will come in two editions, a standard edition and limited edition, which includes a Kuu-shaped plate and spoon, as well as a bib featuring the little baddies of Sorcery Saga.
