Grab The Games: The Thaumaturge

Another day, another review for our fans. Today, I couldn't be more excited that I have my hands on a brand-new game that is not only now available r but also offers a really fun experience from the start. We are going to present you how this title holds up against other games of the genre and if it is worth picking it up right now. But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Stick around, and you will find out now. Let's start by mentioning a few things about the game itself.

The Thaumaturge is an isometric, story-rich RPG with a unique take on turn-based combat, character development features, and investigation mechanics, facing you with morally ambiguous choices – set in a world teeming with mysterious powers and strange ethereal beings called salutors. The year is 1905. Warsaw lives under the yoke of imperial Russian tsardom. Its inhabitants constitute a diverse group of different ancestries, views, and beliefs with often conflicting interests: Russian soldiers, Jewish merchants, Polish townspeople, and more. Despite the circumstances, the city is a buzzing metropolis, where one can attend a breathtaking party with the high society, and later get robbed in one of the dark alleys of the Praga district. A city of great hopes and dreams on one hand and dark desires on the other. A thaumaturge bears both a gift and a burden at the same time.

This parallel holds true for Wiktor Szulski, the game’s titular protagonist, who is drawn back to the tumultuous streets of 20th-century Warsaw by family matters. The gift of thaumaturgy is intertwined with family legacy, passed down through one’s ancestors. This mystical inheritance significantly shapes Wiktor’s life journey tied around a pursuit of unearthly entities and their hosts. As only a thaumaturge can tame these ethereal entities – known to a select few as salutors – utilizing their mystical abilities to discover secrets hidden within the human soul and speak to the Darkness, no one understands quite like Wiktor how everyone suffers their own demons.

To begin with, the very first aspect that impressed me was the way the title introduced itself to the new audience, with a great tutorial and starting mission.  The title offers a great satisfying experience and mechanics that are both fun and easy to explore and use to. The narration is also amazing and the story really manages to keep you at the edge of your seat. The combat is definitely a plus on the title, it is simple but interesting at the same time.

As far as the negative aspects are concerned, I couldn’t find anything of great importance that stopped me from having fun!

To sum up, the game is definitely enjoyable with a lot of aspects to look ahead. The price tag is ok for what it offers and I can really recommend it to everyone who has played similar titles and to gamers who want a relaxing title.
