The Forbidden Arts Set Fire to Nintendo Switch on Aug 7th!

SAN FRANCISCO – July 18, 2019 – The Forbidden Arts, the action adventure platformer from Stingbot Games, will bespell Nintendo Switch and Xbox One alongside its exit from Steam early access and PC/Mac 1.0 release on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019. A PlayStation 4 release will arrive in Q4 2019.

Explore a magical world where secrets are hidden around every corner. Lead Phoenix, a young man who discovers the flame within and embarks on an adventure to learn more about himself and his greater purpose in life while fighting off an evil greater than any the world has ever known.

Inspired by both western and eastern cultures, Phoenix’s world, Chora, possesses a diverse set of biomes including snowy fields, dim caverns, giant beehives, treacherous swamps and more.
