Fool Theory, an independent studio formed by former developers from CD Projekt Red – and thus those who worked on The Witcher 3 – have officially announced the new game they’ve been working away on in conjunction with publisher IMGN.PRO. The minimally-titled Seven is a 3D isometric RPG that centres around an open sandbox World whilst also paying homage to the likes of the Thief series of games. Speaking on the game’s chosen perspective and style of play, Jakub Rokosz, founder of Fool Theory stated Seven is intended to bring ‘a breath of fresh air into classic, isometric role playing games’.
“Seven will bring a new type of exploration as well as open new possibilities for tactical planning and stealth gameplay. We are fully aware how big the challenge is, but it only gives us a greater motivation.“
The project has been running since June and is currently being developed in Unreal Engine 4. The game’s story centres around a lone traveler roaming a world ruled by the Empire of Vetrall. Following an event referred to as The Apocalypse that took place many centuries ago, humanity – or what’s left of it – is slowly recovering and the game’s narrative, alongside player-choices, will revolve around the complex moral decisions and state at which this recovering World has found itself in. Not much has been revealed as to the game’s expected release or completion, but Seven has already been confirmed to be available for PC. Stay tuned for more information.
