It’s going to be very hard for a big ol’ fantasy RPG to get my attention while not being The Witcher 3. From the developer of the wooden War Logs of Mars, Bound By Flame is the tale of a mercenary possessed by a flame demon. You are that mercenary! Or maybe you’re the flame demon. That would be a decent twist actually, explaining away the somewhat arbitrary nature of control over conversations and relationships that tends to be par for the course in games of this sort. The demon thinks it would be amusing to force the poor hero to give one of his travelling companions four hundred turkey dinners, only to fall into despair as the grateful recipient immediately disrobes. Bound by Flame: The Screwtape Letters. Trailer below.
Unlike The Witcher, Bound by Flame allows for character customisation, and the protagonist’s chosen appearance will alter the demon’s. I’ll also be very impressed if CD Projekt have more impressive ogre bums than Bound by Flame. If you didn’t spot it in the video above, take another look. Hefty.
