Yaga is Breadcrumbs Interactive's debut production. In this Slavic folklore-inspired action RPG we play Ivan, a one-armed blacksmith who is affected by an incredible smell.

Plot

The main character of Yaga is Ivan - a one-armed blacksmith with great bad luck. He made the protagonist get stuck in a difficult situation. On the one hand, he is pressed by the tsar, who gives him another impossible task. On the other hand, he has to deal with a mysterious witch who tries to manipulate him (and his grandmother who wants him to find a wife).

Mechanics

Yaga is a typical representative of the RPG action genre with isometric view. Player moves around the game world, performing tasks for NPCs and fighting in real time. Any action taken during the game reflects on the player's reputation. Reputation is that the perception of the protagonist by other characters depends - the better the reputation of the protagonist, the better the commercial offers and the greater the chance to discover various secrets. In addition, a player can receive a blessing if he achieve a high reputation rating.

The production draws inspiration from Slavic beliefs and folklore. In the game you will find good spirits who will bless Ivan, or evil beings who can curse him. Old Slavic beliefs and superstitions are the key to defending against them. The development of characters also uses pagan motifs. The player can develop Ivan's skills with the help of various talismans in the game world. In addition, the possibility of combining them in order to achieve more powerful capabilities has been implemented.

As befits a blacksmith's game, Yaga did not lack crafting. The player can create a number of weapons and tools that will be useful to him during the game. In addition, it is also possible to improve the weapons built earlier.

Technical aspects

Yaga is characterized by full of charm, two-dimensional, cartoon graphics. The visual setting is inspired by Slavic culture, which was additionally emphasized by the soundtrack created by the folk band Subcarpați.
