Hello, Xbox fans! We are pleased to announce that The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante is available on Xbox today! It is a narrative-based dark fantasy RPG where you can write your own story of Sir Brante.
The foundation for The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante was first laid in the fall of 2018, when the game designer and educator Fyodor Slusarchuk came up with the plan to transform the real-life role-playing production, set in the realm of the Blessed Arknian Empire, into a full-fledged video game.
The project would grow into a lifelong story that narrates the path of a single man born in a ruthless and unjust world. Following their alter ego from birth until true death, the player will grow up, make life-altering choices, experience exhilarating highs as well as terrifying lows, and endure social upheavals together with their character. The sheer scale of the game’s core ideas dictated the choice of genre. Such a variety of events, heroes, and branching pathways for the player to take could only be brought to life in the form of a text-based, narrative-driven RPG.
The universe that Sir Brante inhabits had been invented before the work on the project even began. The Blessed Arknian Empire served as the setting for an entire series of real-life and tabletop RPGs. Its culture, religion, and history have now found a new incarnation in the world of video games. This strange and ruthless realm shall become the stage on which the tragic fate of Sir Brante will unfold.
This is a society where absolutism has reached its peak: the will of the ruling gods is unquestionable, and a commoner’s lot is to toil away and suffer. Any transgression against the divine law entails a cruel punishment, both in life and after death. Yet even such a world cannot escape change, and the old era is poised on the verge of collapse. Growing up, your hero will inevitably play a part in these monumental events.
The game takes you on an adventure that starts at the very beginning of life — a little boy born in a dangerous medieval realm, split at the seams, governed by powerful nobles, and ruled over by the all-seeing Twin Gods. Live and grow alongside Sir Brante, dictate his choices and mistakes, and see it all unfold on the enchanting pages of the protagonist’s journal.
Every choice made here matters — from breaking family bonds to rewriting the established laws of the universe. Where will you lead Sir Brante, and where shall his story take you? The choices are plenty, but the freedom to choose is yours alone. Endure great upheavals, encounter strife and love, push open and lock shut the doors to your own future!
Sir Brante’s life story has received a large amount of positive feedback from users and the media since its release in March last year, and we are excited to present the project to Xbox players!
