The Thaumaturge Gameplay Reveal

The trailer isn’t long, but it’s loaded with promising content. The turn-based combat looks as epic as expected from the developers of The Witcher (Remake) and Baldur’s Gate III, and the world design is gorgeous, albeit a bit haunting.

Few details have emerged about The Thaumaturge since it was announced on February 28th, but we know it thrusts players into the role of a Thaumaturge — a person who can see demons and use their powers to navigate this dark reimagining of 1905 Warsaw. The game will also feature ample player choice and allow players to meet real-life historical figures who become involved in its story. Below are the first images and some more info from the game’s Steam page:

The Thaumaturge is an isometric, story-rich RPG with a unique take on turn-based combat, character development features, and investigation mechanics, facing you with morally ambiguous choices – set in a world teeming with mysterious powers and strange ethereal beings called Salutors.

The year is 1905. Warsaw lives under the yoke of imperial Russian tsardom. Its inhabitants constitute a diverse group of different ancestries, views, and beliefs with often conflicting interests: Russian soldiers, Jewish merchants, Polish townspeople, and more. Despite the circumstances, the city is a buzzing metropolis, where one can attend a breathtaking party with the high society, and later get robbed in one of the dark alleys of the Praga district. A city of great hopes and dreams on one hand and dark desires on the other.

In this world, a force that cannot be ignored are Thaumaturges – individuals versed in taming spirit-like beings called Salutors, used for manipulation of the temperaments and affinities of other people and even ultimately in combat. The devil is in the detail – only Thaumaturges are fully aware of the Salutors’ nature and only they can perceive them in their true essence. Their capability to influence others significantly and demonstrably increases their ability to change the surrounding world – however, Thaumaturgy is a power that should be used with caution.

The Thaumaturge‘s release date is TBD, but it’s set to land on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and Stick with RPGFan for more news on The Thaumaturge as it becomes available!
