The Hand of Merlin Official 1.0 Launch Trailer:

The Hand of Merlin is a turn-based villain-lite RPG created by Jonas Kyratzes (The Talos Principle, Serious Sam 4) and Verena Kyratzes (The Lands of Dream, Serious Sam 4) that combines the Arthurian legend with dark sci-fi horror collides. Players recruit three mortal heroes who embark on a desperate journey from Albion to Jerusalem to explore rich medieval lands on the brink of apocalypse under attack by an otherworldly evil. In The Hand of Merlin, choices are permanent, and the choices players make in-game can make all the difference to their party’s synergy and combat ability.

In squad-based and turn-based combat, players can use tactics to use cover, set ambushes, and coordinate attacks to defeat both human and otherworldly vile enemies intent on harming them. With a heavy focus on exploration and encounters, players traverse an intricately designed multiverse as they leap from one parallel dimension to the next. Every world saved is saved forever, but every lost world is lost for all eternity and will be swallowed up by darkness. Adventurers must weigh the consequences of their actions when making decisions, as their human form has limitations.

“We are pleased to announce that The Hand of Merlin will be available on multiple platforms, both console and PC. Fusing a hefty dose of dark sci-fi with traditional Arthurian legend gave us the creative freedom to bring something refreshingly different to the turn-based and squad-based RPG genre,” said Robert Sajko, Creative Director of Room C Games.

The PC version of The Hand of Merlin will be available in both standard and deluxe editions when it launches next month, with the deluxe edition including a copy of the game’s soundtrack.
