Open Sorcery follows the development of an Elemental Firewall: a fire elemental bound with C++ code to protect a network of people and places. You guide her as she makes decisions and grows. She can learn things, develop relationships, and even gain sapience. Or she can burn everything with fire. Up to you.


Open Sorcery was developed in the Twine engine and is one of only a few games in the Interactive Fiction genre that has had a commercial release. It is an award-winning game that has been featured at Indiecade and PAX.
