SIGIL is here. Will Kickstarter ever be the same?

Are you in the market for a magickal crowbar, a personalized ritual, a custom t-shirt, or a plush bondage duck? If so, you’re in luck! Toronto-based studio Albedo Informatics is ecstatic to announce the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for SIGIL, the occult-themed location-based RPG. SIGIL’s Kickstarter has something for the wannabe occultist or adventurer in every family, and it’s just in time for Halloween!

You may also want to take this screening questionnaire to see if you’re suitable for a bounty-hunting position in The Gloam, the dimension where SIGIL takes place.


What is SIGIL?

SIGIL is a fresh take on the location-based gaming genre. SIGIL transports you to The Gloam, a parallel dimension overrun with monsters, cults, delinquents, and criminal syndicates. There is also something sinister afoot. Locals are disappearing at an alarming rate, and there is a rumour spreading that demons have returned. Can you solve this mystery and save The Gloam from impending doom?


Key features of SIGIL:

  • Explore a dimension populated by bizarre creatures drawn from myth, folklore and pop culture.

  • Fight baddies in a fast-paced combat system that’s easy to learn, but has a lot of depth.

  • Experience a rich story and lore, flecked with occult and pop-cultural references and tinged with dark humour.

  • Embark on missions to help the locals, and solve heinous crimes. 

  • Enjoy the stylized and atmospheric art style unlike any other game on mobile.

  • Play anytime and anywhere. It doesn't matter if you're in a small town or the middle of a swamp, SIGIL will generate content at your location, so you'll never be bored. 

  • Level up and become a powerful S.A.U.C.E. god, collecting hundreds of different items and powerful magickal spells. 

  • Commune with mighty deities and demons. But be careful who you ally with.

  • Learn occult lore, become smarter, stronger, more awesome. You will be the envy of all your friends!


SIGIL is currently in soft launch, with official launch slated for Halloween. If you’d like to experience the next big step in location-based games, you can download SIGIL: The Occult GPS RPG now for Free! Google Play | App Store
