About This Game

Thousands of years ago six demon kings, known as the Revenants, ruled the world with an iron fist and bloody swords. Donning the bodies of mortal vassals, they could live in the realms of man forever. The great hero and warlock Harbinger was the only one who could stand up to their power. One by one he hunted the Revenants, taking their spirits and casting them into the Well of Souls. Alas, the Revenants survived. As a young man you will travel to meet your uncle in the town of Madrigal. There, your destiny draws you into the path that Harbinger trod - to confront the Revenants and banish their souls back to the Well forever. Your travels will take you far from Madrigal, to the ruined kingdoms of Horath, the ancient empire of Thardolin, and through the lost city of Talendrah. You will brave searing deserts and icy plains. You will have to seek answers among the living and the dead.

  • Customizable combat and magic system that can be as simple or as complex as you like.
  • Compelling story with many twists and turns will keep you hooked for hours.
  • Dynamic music, high quality voice acting, and more than one possible ending.

After 15 years I'm returning to Ratenna.

I'm descending from a ship. Unnamed stranger, who will change the world and save it from oncoming evil. League of Six together again, and only I can stop them.

"Soulbringer" is a game of a dawn of CRPG, when there were no established formulas and forms. From the age of experiments. Therefore, it is unusual everything: combat system, design and, of course, plot and style. You won't find anything similar in any games in those years, nor modern.

Now we can say about "Soulbringer" that it is a poor graphics, strange and difficult combat system and frequent crashes. But 15 years ago this game was magical. I remember my wandering through the snowy fields near Madrigal and Shadowguard. And as I touched the magical stone in first time.

Now you don't understand the whole awesomeness of this game, but if you played it in 2000th - you're lucky one.

Pro:
Runs on my Win7-64 Radeon machine ... use DX7 and it works fine for me
Classic / retro look


Con:
Controls suck
UI sucks
Mapping ... I can't find it
Story is par at best
Price $10.99 CDN LOL Seriously?
Screen ratio seems a bit off


Overall:
4/10 (-1 price) = 3/10
Pass until you can get it under $2

I swear I think Steam is attempting to nickle and dime me to death! I'm a serious retro gamer and this game is so awesome! I finished this game years ago, but I'm really looking forward to completing it again. FYI, the first time I played it I actually broke the game. The final boss is supposed to have it's health reduced to 25% and then runs to the last room, however I amped up my character so high that it killed the boss on the first meeting. When I ran to the second room there was nothing to do, no end movie or credits. I searched the web and figured out what I did and LAUGHED!!!! I ended up reloading an earlier save and taking it easier on the bad guy and was able to finish the game. I'm so looking forward to playing this again!

Pros:
+ Gloomy atmosphere
+ Great art design and animations
+ Decent combat system
+ No pre-set classes
+ Somewhat open world (some locations open only along with the storyline)
+ Full and good dubbing

Cons:
- Another fantasy game...
- Boring story
- Annoying controls and camera
- Worn clothes by the player's character are not shown in the game world, even with full mail armour he looks like an unarmoured peasant.

A surprising hidden gem, I recommend it to everyone who fancies cRPGs. It's not a great game, but it definitely is a decent one.
