March 11, 2015 – The glory days of “Gold Box” fantasy role-playing games are about to make a huge comeback, as Tactical Simulations Interactive (TSI) has today announced a release date for “Seven Dragon Saga” for PC, Mac and Linux. The TSI team is comprised of veteran developers and alumni from Strategic Simulations Interactive (SSI) who worked on fantasy RPG classics including “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Pool of Radiance”, “AD&D Curse of the Azure Bonds” and “Wizards Crown.”
Self-funded for most of its development, Seven Dragon Saga has launched on Kickstarter today to fund the final round of production. The Kickstarter can be found here. Backer rewards include special items such as DRM-free copies of Seven Dragon Saga, Code Wheels to assist players in solving puzzles in-game, Journals containing more info about the game world and copies of the pen ‘n paper version of the game.
Endorsements from the industry –
“I look forward to the magical worlds TSI will create for us to play in once more!” – Richard Garriott, Co-founder, CEO, Creative Director – Portalarium
“I’m extremely excited to hear that the team is coming back together to bring all that old school goodness into the modern age beginning with Seven Dragon Saga.” – Swen Vincke, CEO – Larian Studios
“SSI was the strongest PC game brand in my youth — I could count on dozens of hours of enjoyment from every SSI game I played. As thrilled as I was in the late 1980s when I learned they were making Pool of Radiance, a real D&D CRPG, it’s even more exciting now to hear about Seven Dragon Saga.” – Kevin Saunders, Project Director, Torment: Tides of Numenera
About Seven Dragon Saga
Eschewing traditional RPG tropes, Seven Dragon Saga provides the player with powerful heroes right from the start, with TSI aiming to provide the next step in meaningful player experiences in the same way that SSI’s ‘Gold Box’ titles did during the 1980s and 1990s.
This is not a tale of farmers or aspiring novices learning how to swing a sword; Seven Dragon Saga is a tale about the use of power. Players will need to assemble a brave troupe of adventurers “touched by the winds of the chaos” who will embark on a quest to discover hidden truths and determine the fate of the Empire of the Seven Dragons.
