Introducing Seven, A New RPG From Ex-Witcher Developers

After having left CD Projekt Red to form their own studio, the creative brains behind the newly formed team called Fool’s Theory immediately began work on a new RPG they stated would not only be a daring combination of genres, but also Unreal Engine 4 powered. No other info was given, however.

Today that game has a name as well as an official website. Known as Seven, the new RPG is said to borrow gameplay eleemnts from several places, one of them being -strangely enough- the Thief franchise.

    As a lone traveler roaming the world of Empire of Vetrall, you’ll be constantly facing its cruelty and dual nature. The Apocalypse that took place many centuries ago didn’t wipe out all. Humanity or what’s left of it, has slowly recovered, but the shape and condition of this new world is far from what it used to be. In this new reality Dark Ages are constantly intertwining with the ancient advanced technology, and it doesn’t make it any easier for those who were lucky or unlucky enough to survive.
    Seven is a Thief-inspired, 3D isometric RPG in which players will get a chance to freely explore the sandbox world of Vetrall Empire. Set in a ‘beyond post-apocalyptic’ environment the title will redefine the isometric RPG genre. The classic gameplay is totally reinvented by the protagonist’s ability of free-traversing obstacles on any height, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to his parkour skills. The story created by the minds behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will be far from black and white. Lots of branching choices and difficult moral decisions resulting in surprising plot twists, are to be expected from this upcoming PC RPG fueled by Unreal Engine 4.

According to the website, the game is set in a “beyond” post-apocalyptic world in which parkour style exploration is a huge part of the gameplay. Considering the game will be isometric, it should be interesting to see how stealth and vertical climbing is handled…especially when you factor in the use of the new Unreal Engine. Overall, it sounds like a lofty (but interesting) design document.

If you’re interested in learning every little detail about the game, Fool’s Theory uploaded a fact sheet in PDF format that goes into specifics. We’ll be sure to follow this game closely as more info is released.
