11 Bit Studios announced they will publish the Fool’s Theory-developed story-driven RPG The Thaumaturge on PC via Steam, GoG, and Epic Games Store, but a release date was not provided.
The Thaumaturge is set in 1905 in Warsaw, which is home to religious conflict. However, it seems that’s not the only thing people need to be worried about, as monsters lurk in the shadows.
“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,” states Fool’s Theory Design Director, Karolina Kuzia-Rokosz. 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.
“Fool’s Theory has proven to be a great studio to materialize our desire to add a meaningful RPG to our portfolio,” praises Marek Ziemak, Chief Production Officer at 11 bit studios. “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”.
