It’s update time!

We’re so happy to see how positively people have received Smoke and Sacrifice, but we’ve not been resting on our laurels! Solar Sail Games are delighted to announce a new ‘Quality of Life’ update for Smoke and Sacrifice which brings a raft of improvements across the game. Since launch we’ve been been attending closely to our community and this patch addresses many of the most requested fixes and features.

The patch will be arriving on Monday 9th July so you haven’t long to wait!

Inventory Management Improvements:
  • We’ve added an inventory sort button for instant organisation.
  • You can now see what you’ve stored inside chests on the map screen.
  • We’ve increased stack limits, so you can carry more items.
  • You can also now merge two stacks by dragging and dropping one onto another.
Improved Controls:
  • Keys, tokens, quest items and activators can now be used or applied with a single, context-sensitive button press - no need to open the inventory.
  • We also added a button to equip and unequip your lantern.
  • You can now hold your mouse button down to walk continuously.
Save System Improvements:
  • Story cutscenes now offer the opportunity to save your progress.
  • Reminders to use the manual save Terminals have been added at key points.
Improvements to clarity of objectives:
  • The quest log text and presentation more clearly indicates what to do next.
  • The quest log now indicates when a goal isn’t yet possible to complete.
Balancing improvements:
  • We’ve made weapons gain more health on repair, and last longer than before.
  • Boots now last forever, so no more death from shoe expiry in dangerous areas.
  • The cost of crafting some items is now cheaper, improving game pace.
    Improved instructions:
  • A warning icon is now shown when equipped items are about to expire.
  • Early tutorials have been extended to explain controls and features more fully
Options and Tech:
  • We’ve added volume sliders to the options screen

About This Game

Smoke and Sacrifice is an open-world, narrative-driven RPG, where exploiting living ecosystems is the key to your survival. Craft, fight, survive and explore the huge open world in this beautifully hand-painted, gothic adventure where every character has their tale to tell.

Sachi’s home is the one tiny patch of fertile land which remains in an icy wasteland of a world. Her farming community thrives thanks to their devotion to the blazing Sun Tree, which replaces the lost light of the failed sun. After sacrificing her firstborn child to the Sun Tree, Sachi discovers a darker secret beneath the aura of priestly benevolence. Will she discover the truth hidden in the secret underworld, or perish in its swirling, deadly smoke?

With the odds stacked against her, strange creatures challenging her every step, and the ever-looming smoke waiting to steal life and memory, will Sachi ever discover the truth of what happened to her son?
