The Forbidden Arts is an action adventure platformer with a deep lore and focus on discovery and exploration.

When the hero of the game, Phoenix, seeks the counsel of a druid to make sense of his visions, she awakens the latent pyromancy within him. This begins an epic journey from Phoenix's humble beginnings to leading a powerful party on a mission to save the world of Chora from the blight of a powerful necromancer.

Phoenix will embark on quests, solve puzzles, discover long-forgotten secrets, and battle enemies in a grand adventure of ancient magic. By controlling the power of fire within, Phoenix will discover new ways to take down enemies and bosses, as well as understand his inner flame.

Full of action, suspense, comedy and unexpected twists and turns,The Forbidden Art takes place in a magical realm combining western and eastern culture and is brought to life with a bright and colorful art style accentuated by an acoustic guitar soundtrack.

"Chora a is magical world full of mystery and wonder, with many more surprises on the way," says Sterling Selover, founder and visionary, Stingbot Games. "Our Early Access players will help us shape Phoenix's journey and strengthen him for the challenges ahead."

The Forbidden Arts is currently available on Steam Early Access for $9.99 USD in English. Other localization will come during the full launch next year. New content will be added regularly, with the first major update due out in the next few weeks. The price of The Forbidden Arts will rise as it approaches release, but early adopters will receive all added content at no extra cost.

The Forbidden Arts will arrive in Q1 2019 on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
