Snowcastle Games has been in full production for the past four years on their first major title, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, and it’s coming onto Xbox One on September 1st. Not only that, but the title will also be the first of four titles to be part of Games with Gold’s September lineup, with the remaining titles to be announced next week.
This westernized turn-based RPG, which in subtle ways reveals its Scandinavian origin, starts as a simple quest, but develops into an involved journey. Play as Amon and join several unlikely heroes to save Umbra, a beautiful but harsh world that mysteriously stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago. Mix up your strategy to beat your enemies by crafting ammo and materials, harvesting elemental plants, and customizing your characters’ talent tree.
