Rogue-lite RPG The Hand of Merlin is coming to PC and consoles on June 14th

The Arthurian legend blends sci-fi and horror elements in tactical turn-based combat – Console versions include all PC updates

Denver, CO – May 19, 2022 – Independent developer Room-C Games, working with Croteam and indie publisher Versus Evil, is pleased to announce that its rogue-lite RPG The Hand of Merlin version 1.0 will be released on June 14th, 2022 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch as well as for the Xbox Series S/X and Xbox One consoles.

The console version will include all eight major updates from the PC version that were released during the period in Early Access on Steam. Developer Room-C Games has implemented many new features and gameplay improvements, including meta progression, passive abilities, alternate maps, different difficulty modes, and overhauled visual effects.

The Hand of Merlin is a turn-based rogue-lite RPG written by Jonas Kyratzes (The Talos Principle, Serious Sam 4) and Verena Kyratzes (The Lands of Dream, Serious Sam 4) about the Arthurian legend on grim Sci-fi horror meets. Players recruit three mortal heroes who embark on a desperate journey from Albion to Jerusalem to explore medieval lands on the brink of apocalypse under attack by an otherworldly evil. In The Hand of Merlin, choices are permanent, and the choices players make in-game can make all the difference to their party’s synergy and combat ability.

In squad-based and turn-based combat, players can use tactics to use cover, set ambushes, and coordinate attacks to defeat both human and otherworldly vile enemies intent on harming them. With a heavy focus on exploration and combat, players traverse a complex multiverse as they leap from one parallel dimension to the next. Every world saved is saved forever, but every lost world is lost for all eternity and will be swallowed up by darkness. Adventurers must weigh the consequences of their actions when making decisions, as their human form has limitations.

“We’re delighted to announce that The Hand of Merlin will be available on multiple platforms, ie console and PC. Fusing a hefty dose of dark sci-fi with traditional Arthurian legend gave us creative freedom, somewhat refreshingly so to bring something different to the turn-based and squad-based RPG genre,” said Robert Sajko, Creative Director of Room C Games.
