The Hilarious Adventures of a One-armed, Monster-Bashing, Wrecking Machine Blacksmith inspired by twisted Slavic folk tales.
“Today is a proud moment for the Versus Evil team as we have been able to work with the developer Breadcrumbs Interactive in delivering Yaga as an Apple Arcade title, and Epic Store exclusive, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and now Steam. Working on indie titles like Yaga that bring folklore, story and gameplay to all these platforms is exciting and fun. Congratulations to the Breadcrumbs team on this latest achievement and we are excited to share Yaga with more fans of RPGs through our wonderful partners at Steam.”
Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with Breadcrumbs Interactive announced today that its darkly funny action role-playing game Yaga is now available on Steam for PC. To mark the occasion, the game will release version 1.2, the “Spirits for Spirits Update” which includes a brand new side mission and new game improvements.
Yaga is an action role-playing game with a dark and funny narrative. Yaga tells the story of Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith who apparently has really bad luck(I can relate, although I do have all my limbs and appendages). Ivan must take on impossible tasks given to him by the Tzar. Mysterious witch, Baba Yaga, keeps an eye on Ivan as he smashes his way through a variety of monsters and legends inspired by the disparate myths and pagan beliefs of unsettling Slavic folk tales.
Players can craft a variety of hammers and tools that Ivan needs to survive in this dark underworld of myth and mystery, capitalizing on the game’s deep foraging system. Players also have the ability to experiment with different combinations of talismans, magic items, curses and blessings. Doing this will fundamently change the way Ivan plays and further increases his capabilities.
There are also consequences to Ivan’s actions and the decisions the players make in-game. These decisions affect his reputation and the various upgrades accessible to him, this provides players with different outcomes and experiences based on they play.
With an art aesthetic heavily inspired by Russian storybook illustrations, traditional clothing motifs and rural art from the countryside of eastern Europe, Yaga’s Slavic flavor is a wickedly funny story tale with a darker edge.
Yaga is also available on the Epic Games Store, GOG.com, Humble Store and other PC retailers. Yaga is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
