  Share on Twitter RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

September 20, 2021. A war rages outside and only the blacksmith is safe, for now. HeroCraft PC is delighted to present a new teaser for Anvil Saga, a management sim with RPG elements where you take control of a blacksmith shop amidst the Hundred Years' War. 


You play the role of Arthur, a young man trying to turn his father’s ramshackle blacksmith shop into a successful enterprise. The world is challenging and endlessly varied with a host of colourful characters. Each decision you make impacts the story and gameplay. Start with your trusty hammer, make tough choices, hire new workers, win the heart of your true love and build the smithy of your dreams.


The teaser premiered at The Escapist Indie Showcase. You can watch it on YouTube or download the video.


Join us for the post-show to hear the game’s producer, Daniil Zevakin, talk about the development of the game, curious facts and plans on Escapist’s YouTube channel on September 22, at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 7:00 PM GMT. 


Anvil Saga is developed by Russian indie team Pirozhok Studio. The game is published by HeroCraft PC and is set to release on Steam later this year.
