Steve Jackson's Sorcery! Part 3 The Seven Serpents

I've had the chance to review Sorcery! Parts 1 & 2 about two months ago, and I'm incredibly glad I decided to do so because what I found was a faithful adaptation of a choose-your-own-adventure gamebook, complete with the myriad of gruesome, yet hilarious ways to die.

Unfortunately for me, only the first two parts of the quadrilogy were available on PC back then, so I had to endure the grueling torture of a cliffhanger for two overly long months. The eternal wait is soon over, however, as Part 3 of Sorcery! has been set to arrive on April 5th. Here's the trailer giving you a glimpse of all of the areas you'll be able to meet an untimely end at:

 

Much like its predecessors, Part 3: The Seven Serpents will provide a narrative driven gameplay experience as you attempt to cross the cursed wastelands of Kakhabad, armed with precious few ways of defending yourself, and even fewer resources.

Even if you consider yourself quite proficient at Sorcery!, having already survived all of the trials in Parts 1 & 2, you should still be cautious as things are a little bit different in Part 3. Since the majority of your trip will consist of sun-addled meandering through an uncaring wilderness, there are precious few ways to restock your dwindling food supplies, and barely any functioning roads to follow for guidance.

Your choices, even more so than in the previous episodes, will dictate whether you leave the scorching plains unscathed, or if you are to become yet another in a series of adventurers that attempted, but failed, to cross its expanse.

Sorcery! 3: The Seven Serpents will be arriving on PC this April 5th, with the final episode set for later this year and launching simultaneously on all platforms, mobile and PC.

If you're a fan of adventure games, or simply enjoy having your choices matter, then I fully recommend you investigate Sorcery! further, I had a great deal of fun with it.
