The Thaumaturge is a story-driven rich set in an alternative version of early 20th century Warsaw and follows the grim adventures of the titular Thaumaturge whose name is Wiktor Szulski. After receiving an invitation to come home for a family reunion, Wiktor discovers that his hometown is not as peaceful as it used to be, and is now rife with corruption, political intrigue, and demonic influence.
The goal of the game is to explore Warsaw to unravel its mysteries, engage in conversations with the locals with dialogue choices that can affect the story, and battle foes in turn-based combat. The main hook of The Thaumaturge is that Wiktor has the power to command horrifying monsters regular people can't see, called Salutors.
Salutors are mysterious creatures that prey upon and possess humans. As a Thaumaturge, you can capture Salutors and use their abilities to gain information from people in conversations or kill enemies in battle. Be careful when using the power of Salutors as their demonic presence can potentially drive Thaumaturges mad.

Will Wiktor be able to keep the Salutors in check without losing his sanity? What tragic tales and earth-shattering conspiracies await him in Warsaw after being away from home for many years? All these questions and more will be answered when The Thaumaturge releases on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG on December 5, 2023 and later on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 in 2024.
