Bound by Flame is a heroic fantasy RPG that has you playing as a mercenary possessed by a demon in flames. In the grasp of the demon, you must choose between the demonic power within you, and your humanity. Should you choose the latter, you must repel the demonic influence and develop truly heroic skills. As dangers and enemies close down on you, always more fearsome and terrifying, you will be tempted to yield a bit more of your soul to the demon that possesses you in order to gain more power… and as the demon gains more of your soul, your physical transformation becomes more obvious.
Depending on your choices and the grasp of the demon, the chapters offer different experiences, quests and scenarios. The real-time battles are both dynamic and impressive; if you start your adventure by mastering the basics of combat, assassination, and eventually fire magic, you can later specialize by unlocking and improving many skills that you will use in each of the three talent trees.
