Developer Boomer's Workshop has announced that their classic party based role playing game Sanctuary Saga Prelude is coming to PC in March of this year. The game actually released as a physical board game back in 2019 to very positive reviews on Board Game Geek! What makes this game stand out from others is that it utilizes a special relationship system, which includes keeping everyone in your party well fed and happy. Nurturing character's relationships with each other is a key mechanic to progressing through the campaign.
The Prelude version of the game features four unique biomes, including green forests and abandoned deserts. Sanctuary Saga uses traditional turn based combat with a row based skill system that forces you to manage the position of your party members. Each character contains six unique skills that can be mixed and matched for you to create the most powerful team. The unique part of combat is the argument meter, which must be monitored during battle as some characters might refuse to fight if the meter gets too high. This directly ties in with the aforementioned relationship system, so it's in your best interest to keep up those social links!

Sanctuary Saga is coming to PC via Steam on March 8, 2023. You can wishlist the game now on Steam to support the developers! A free demo will be available during Steam Next Fest from February 6th-13th.
