Story-Rich RPG The Thaumaturge Announced

A story-driven RPG with a unique take on combat, character development features, and investigation mechanics, 11 bit studios and Fool’s Theory’s The Thaumaturge is now in development.

Transporting players to Warsaw in early 20th century Poland after it has been annexed by the Russian Empire, The Thaumaturge is a story-rich isometric RPG that has players wielding immense powers as a Salutor.

Fool’s Theory Design Director Karolina Kuzia-Rokosz said the following:

“The Thaumaturge revolves around the idea of demons both on physical, and metaphorical layers. After all, it’s a game infused with 11 bit studios’ philosophy of meaningful entertainment. Its theme is evoked in different areas of the game with gameplay mechanics or narrative aspects being only a part of those. While the old saying goes “everyone has their own demons”, playing The Thaumaturge will make gamers realize that not everything has to always mean what it seems.Karolina Kuzia-Rokosz/cite>

Marek Ziemak, Chief Production Officer at 11 bit studios, added:

“Fool’s Theory has proven to be a great studio to materialize our desire to add a meaningful RPG to our portfolio. And with a hefty team of around 60 people and an appropriately scaled budget, The Thaumaturge is our biggest publishing project to date, which resembles the scope of the first Frostpunk. And one especially close to our hearts thanks to being set in a place many of us were born and raised, which we’re tied with, and which we believe hasn’t yet seen a proper representation in any game. Summing that up, we’re more than thrilled to shed light on what we’ve shaped in the more than four years since the initial idea emerged”.Marek Ziemak

A gameplay demo of The Thaumaturge will be presented behind closed doors at this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next month.
