Alchemic adventures and experimental exploration await you!
Team17 and Sengi Games have today announced the launch of The Serpent Rogue, an alchemy based adventure game releasing on the PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
The game sees you play as The Warden, the plague-masked protagonist. Players must explore the world and craft crucial potions to cleanse the world of the encroaching corruption known only as the Serpent Rogue, all to restore balance and harmony to the lands surrounding Mount Morbus.
Alchemy is one of the key parts of The Serpents Rogue’s gameplay, and mastering the elements of it will be pivotal to your success. Collect and discover new ingredients, figure out their uses and powers, and experiment with different concoctions to craft unique potions that have a myriad of effects.
Each step on The Wardens path will be rife with danger, and so tackling the challenges you face effectively will be incredibly important. Tread carefully. Some of your adversaries can only be defeated in open combat. Others with perfectly timed alchemical potions. As such your knowledge of your equipment and the alchemical makeup of your potions is of the utmost importance.
It’s not just you that can effect the world. Tiny, inconsequential moments can have much larger ramifications. Leaving food around will attract vermin, for example. Not such a terrible thing, but still something worth bearing in mind for the havoc it can cause for NPCs. On a more dangerous level, leaving bodies unburied will lure fearsome ghouls. More enemies to have to contend with. Not necessarily the best thing when you’re low on resources.
Your decisions effect the world of The Serpent Rogue, and must be considered going forward.
