Steampunk RPG for PC on the way


With Sovereign Syndicate, the Canadian Crimson Herring Studios is a steampunk role-playing game in Victorian London for PC in the making. There is no planned release date yet, but the isometric open-world adventure can already be added to the wish list on Steam.

In the game description it says: “Choose from three playable characters, each with their own intricate stories that are interwoven. Explore, interact and take action to make your mark on this world and among its inhabitants. Use your skills to improve it and trust your fate to our tarot card system. How will you solve your problems? Through combat, negotiation, sorcery or the concentrated destructive power of explosives? The choice is yours and all your cards are on the table. But be careful, because the waterfront is not for weak nerves.

Tarot Card System – Forget about your dice when interacting with a wide variety of characters. NPCs are responsive to your gender, origins, looks, and words, so you should play your role convincingly and look appropriately if you want to get the ‘right’ results. But you cannot control everything, because luck plays its own role and is in every single card of our new tarot card system.

Skill and Tag System – When you use skills, they improve, while skills you ignore will get worse. Master your chosen skills and learn more about the world and its inhabitants to unlock special dialogues and options for skill tests. So don’t be shy and try out unusual things. Do you want to drown yourself in gin? No problem as long as you have the necessary constitution for it. Do you want to smoke opium? Sure, but don’t fall asleep … you might regret it. Do you want to put everything on black? You only live once, as the saying goes. And you can also learn from mistakes …

Diverse open world to explore – A Victorian London in steampunk fantasy style with many interesting characters and locations awaits you. Explore dark alleys, opium dens, brothels and much more at your own risk or indulge in their vicious amusements. Explore the world, interact, step into action and go your own way.

Three characters, three stories – Play one of three characters, each with their own story, who all play in the harbor district and develop based on your decisions.

  • Atticus Daley, a Minotaur orphan who has mastered the art of wizardry, constantly on the lookout for belonging and his next shot.
  • Clara Reed, a privateer with a vivid past. A shrewd woman with a streak of rebellion. Follow her on her quest for retribution and the courtesan killer.
  • Otto, the trusty automaton and companion of the engineer Theodore Redgrave. Otto is more than just a bunch of screws and gears. He wants to do more than serve and be useful in life.


Each of the characters has their own skills, equipment, and special knowledge, and they must help each other to move forward. Will you trust your companions and can they rely on you? After all, not everyone is a born hero. “
