A lovely adaptation of those age-old adventure books.

UPDATE: The Android version of Sorcery! Part 1 will be released in December, developer Inkle has told me.

ORIGINAL STORY: Part 2 of the beautiful touch-screen adaptation of Steve Jackson's Sorcery! adventure books will be released on the App Store on 7th November.

It takes the story to the Cityport of Kharé, a place of thieves, monsters, traps, secrets and a new gambling mini-game called Swindlestones. And despite being contained in one location, Part 2 is a much bigger game overall.

In tandem with Part 2 will come an update for Part 1, adding fist fighting, a female avatar, a new 3D spell casting system and save game integration for carrying your adventure over. Part 2 can be played standalone as well.

Developer Inkle plans four parts of its Sorcery! epic. Part 1 showed plenty of promise in its hand-drawn, board game-like presentation and unflinching consequences to your myriad choices. But a forgiving reload option and short campaign made it a brief experience.
