Team17 and Sengi Games have announced alchemy driven action-adventure The Serpent Rogue will launch on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on the 26th of April. Embarking on a quest to save the world from a corruption known only as the titular Serpent Rogue, The Warden must utilise each tool at their disposal to cleanse the realm and restore balance to Mount Morbus.
Experiment and utilise your magical skills to push back The Serpent Rogue
Alchemy is one of the key ingredients in the gameplay of The Serpent Rogue. You must master it to ensure success. Players have to collect and research ingredients to unveil their uses. Then experiment with different mixtures to craft unique potions. You must then use those concoctions in a variety of ways to progress through the ever-evolving world.
Each action The Warden takes has an effect on the wider world. One such example is if too many items are left littered around an area, rodents will arrive en masse to cause havoc. Also if bodies are left unburied, ghouls will be lured by their scent leaving death and destruction in their wake. There are some genuinely troubling elements if you don’t clean up after yourself.
With charming graphics and an interesting concept, The Serpent Rogue looks like a lot of fun. The idea of transforming my enemies as well as myself via alchemy is a fascinating one.
