I suppose we would normally try to bring Kickstarter projects to your attention before they close, but I guess this one flew over our heads. Fortunately, it's successfully funded!

So what it is Paper Sorcerer?

Paper Sorcerer is a first-person turn-based RPG with adventure game elements inspired by Wizardry, Dungeons and Dragons, and Shadowgate.
  • Play as a renegade sorcerer as he struggles to escape the book prison and regain his powers.
  • Escape a magical prison filled with heroes hunting you down at every turn.
  • Strategy over grinding battles, with a charge based spell system.
  • Create a party of summons to join you as allies in battle.
  • Discover open-ended puzzles and solve them with a combinations of spells, items, and your wits.
  • Hand-drawn high-resolution sprites inspired by the work of late eighteenth and early nineteenth century illustrators like Aubrey Beardsley and William Bradley.

There's a gameplay video on youtube, showcasing the unique art style and combat:

You can read more about it at the Kickstarter page. It looks like UltraRunawayGames are aiming to have the game out pretty soon, so keep an eye out.

Thanks, ghostdog!
