Simon the Sorcerer Origins

Simon the Sorcerer Origins

Hold onto your wizard hats, folks, because the adventure community is ablaze with excitement! Why? Because the long-awaited prequel to the beloved 90s point-and-click classic, Simon the Sorcerer, has just unleashed its electrifying overview trailer. Simon the Sorcerer Origins Premiered amidst the glitz and glam of the Future Games Show Spring Showcase, this trailer isn’t just a blast from the past; it’s a tantalizing glimpse into a nostalgic yet refreshingly modern gaming experience.

“Thirty years after his first adventure, Simon returns in a prequel packed with unpredictable events unfolding in the Magic World: a land populated by powerful (and mostly useless) wizards and absurd creatures,”

Crafted by the ingenious minds at Smallthing Studios and backed by the publishing prowess of Leonardo Interactive, Simon the Sorcerer Origins stands as a testament to Italian gaming innovation. “Thirty years after his first adventure, Simon returns in a prequel packed with unpredictable events unfolding in the Magic World: a land populated by powerful (and mostly useless) wizards and absurd creatures,” declares the publisher. Summoned by an ancient prophecy, Simon is torn away from his turbulent teenage life of school expulsions and unexpected house moves. This new world throws him into a series of dastardly puzzles to solve, alchemical contraptions to tinker with, powerful spells to learn, and revolting stews to taste!

And guess what? It’s got the original sorcerer duo, Simon and Mike Woodroffe, grinning ear to ear with approval. With the brilliant Chris Barrie reprising his role as the voice of our titular hero and a soundtrack that’s pure magic courtesy of Mason Fisher, this game is primed to cast a spell on old fans and newcomers alike.

But wait, there’s more! A dedicated team of 80 gaming virtuosos is pouring their hearts and souls into this project, ensuring that it’s not just another sequel, but a worthy successor to the Simon the Sorcerer legacy. And brace yourselves, because the inclusion of pop sensation Rick Astley’s iconic anthem “Together Forever” is sending shockwaves through the gaming universe, heightening the anticipation to stratospheric levels.

Did someone say Rick Astley?

Let’s talk tunes! Brace yourself, because Simon is about to get a dose of Rick-Rolling! That’s right, the one and only singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Rick Astley, has been roped in to cook up a fresh track for the Origin’s soundtrack. Can you imagine? It’s bound to be a hit, perhaps even catchy enough to melt Simon’s trademark cynicism.
