Rise of the Necromancer is a open world game set in a fantasy land. In it you take the role of a young woman accidentally exposed to the forbidden art of Necromancy - the magic used to raise bodies from the dead as unliving servants.
The reason it is an open world game though is that what you do with that power is up to you. You can raise an army of the undead to conquer the known world, use your tireless workers to start a trade empire like nothing seen before or simply hole up in a tower built by your minions and study the ways of magic. Any and every option is available to you.
Unlike a lot of games, Rise of the Necromancer gives you full control over the magic you use. Instead of picking the spell from a pre-generated list, you have full control over the magic you use and can tailor each and every spell to do exactly what you wish. Or you can eventually at least - if you don't know how to perform an effect you may well find yourself having to travel the world or raid ancient libraries to determine exactly the incantation to use.
The game is currently under development, as is everything about it - this website for example. If you want to get involved then click on the Get Involved link to the right. You can help shape the development and features of the game, and all early playtesters and other helpers will be immortalised in game.
