    Wingardium leviosa

    It’s been a long time in the making, but PlayStation Move’s most anticipated game Sorcery is finally set to apparate onto store shelves this week. Refreshingly for a motion controlled game, Sorcery’s launch trailer doesn't focus on make believe families pretending to have a good time. Instead it champions the game’s plot,...

  • News Fearsome Creatures Conjured in Final Sorcery Diary

    Medievil

    Outstanding controls and engaging audio are all well and good, but what is the point of them without creatures to kill? Ahead of next week’s launch, Sony has released the final entry in its Sorcery developer diary, focusing on the design of the foes from the final game. Like the audio, the enemy design is based upon Celtic and Northern...

  • News Sony Introduces the Sounds of Sorcery

    Whimsical

    Audio is one of the most underrated aspects of video games. When done well it's able to shape your mood, but, conversely, when poor it really sticks out. Thankfully, we don’t think Sony’s upcoming magical Move-powered adventure Sorcery will suffer from that problem because, based on the evidence of this brand new behind the scenes...

  • News Sony Serves Up Enchanting Sorcery Story Trailer

    Once upon a time

    While it’s unlikely you’ll be purchasing the upcoming Move powered Sorcery for its narrative, plot does appear to be a big part of the motion controlled game. The title explores the adventure of Finn, a young sorcerer who must master the arcane arts in order to save his home world. There’s actually a lot more back story to...

  • News New Sorcery Footage Waves its Wand

    Wingardium leviosa

    Sorcery’s certainly come a long way since its initial unveiling. The original concept seemed like a pretty bog standard dungeon crawler, but based on the evidence of this new footage, the game’s blossomed into something of an adventure title. The question is, valued reader, are you still excited for the game or not? There was...

    Expelliarmus

    PlayStation Move big hitter Sorcery is heading towards release — promise — with an ESRB rating revealing some intriguing elements of The Workshop's upcoming fantasy magic adventure.

  • News Sorcery Video, Screenshots and Details All Inside

    It's been a long wait to see more of Sorcery, but Sony finally lifted the game's invisibility cape this week to reveal more of what The Workshop has in store for 2012.

  • News E3 2011 MIA: What Happened to Sorcery?

    Disappeared into thin air

    One of the titles we were looking forward to learning more about E3 2011 was Sorcery, the Move-enabled magic title that Sony was so proud to show off last year, but we left Los Angeles disappointed and downhearted. The magical-looking adventure was completely absent from Sony's show, with not even a mention of the game...
