Independent game publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with Breadcrumb Interactive, announced today that the darkly fun action RPG Yaga is now available for PC via Steam. To commemorate this special moment, version 1.2, the “Spirits for Spirits” update, which integrates a brand new side mission and improvements to the game, has been released.
Yaga’s dark yet fun narrative and role-playing features the story of Ivan, an armed blacksmith with incredibly bad luck who has to complete an impossible task that the Czar gave him. All the while, the mysterious witch Baba Yaga sees Ivan’s fate as he fights his way through a crowd of dangerous monsters and legends, all inspired by Slavic folk tunes.
Players can deal with this diverse underworld of monsters and atrocities with various weapons created through Yaga’s extensive crafting system. There are lightning hammers, pitchfork and other deadly melee weapons to choose from. Players can use a combination of Taliban, magical items, blessings, bonuses and curses that fundamentally change Ivan’s way of playing.
The consequences of Evan’s actions and decisions that players make for him will affect his standing and the various upgrades available to him. This provides players with different results and experiences depending on how they play.
