by on Apr.26, 2016, under Cornerstone, featured, new release

Phoenix Online Publishing and Overflow Games are excited to announce today’s release of epic action RPG Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim for PC, Mac, and Linux! Starting as a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013, this sweeping fantasy tale in which combat, crafting, and physics-based puzzle-solving collide has already been praised as “an excellent action-adventure game” and “a breath of fresh air in the industry.” As young Viking Tyrim, players will take on a range of wondrous quests, battle unforgettable adversaries, and experience the adventure of a lifetime in Nygard, a legendary world of wonder bursting with colorful characters, playable vehicles, and open-world adventures. Featuring a complete crafting system that lets you build your own weapons and gear, playable vehicles ranging from ships to windsurfers, and dozens of quirky characters to interact with as you explore eight exotic islands filled with tricks, traps, and treasures, Cornerstone is now available on the Phoenix Online Store (store.postudios.com), Steam, GOG.com, the Humble Store, and other major online retailers for $19.99.

The Viking men of the village of Borja haven’t been seen in weeks, and Tyrim is determined to set forth and find them: An objective that will send him sneaking deep into the heart of enemy fortresses, combing dank dungeons on a hunt for lost artifacts, and actively taking the fight to the forces of evil as he pursues an increasingly inventive range of quests. Wielding the young warrior’s crafting and combat skills, you’ll set sail on trusty galleon the Mad Goat across the seas to uncover the world of Nygard’s mysteries, collecting fabulous relics, uncovering forbidden secrets and magic, and ultimately challenging a powerful ancient evil as you quest to bring the Vikings home.

  

“Developing this game has been such an amazing journey. Lots and lots of hard work, long days, late nights, many laughs and even a bit of frustration. We have probably developed as much as Tyrim has since the very start of this project!” says Jonathan Prytz, Lead Game Designer and Artist. “We have to thank our Kickstarter backers for believing in this game two and a half years ago and we hope to make them proud with all that we accomplished today! Finally the release is here and we’re super excited!”

Key Features 

  • Epic, open-world blend of action RPG, physics-based puzzle-solving, and combat
  • Complete crafting system – build your own weapons, armor, and gear
  • Explore 8 exotic islands filled with unique enemies, treasures, and adventures

As the search moves beyond England, can Jeremiah be found? Or will Wakefield merely find that he, too, is about to become lost in the search for the Last Door?

“We’re truly humbled by the support of the fans who have helped us in crafting this story, and we believe we’ve managed to create an epic conclusion to the series for them,” says Mauricio Garcia, CEO of The Game Kitchen. “We believe it’s time to finally meet what’s waiting for you beyond the Veil.”

A “love letter to Lovecraft”, players stepped into the shoes of Jeremiah Devitt to explore ancient mansions, decaying tenements, and the twisting, fog-filled alleys of London in search of memories Devitt had forgotten, but which had driven an old friend to suicide. Season 1 is available for PC, Mac, and Linux, as well as on mobile platforms for iOS and Android.

  • Sequel to the  award-winning point-and-click Victorian era horror adventure, The Last Door
