Phoenix Online Publishing and Overflow Bring Crafting, Combat, Sailing, Physics-Based Puzzles and More to PC, Mac, and Linux

Boston, MA – February 11th, 2016 – Phoenix Online Publishing and Overflow Games today announced the upcoming April 26th release of epic action RPG Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim for PC, Mac, and Linux – a sweeping fantasy tale in which combat, crafting, and physics-based puzzle-solving collide. In the game, players will join young Viking Tyrim as he takes on a range of wondrous quests, battles unforgettable adversaries, and experiences the adventure of a lifetime in Nygard, a legendary world of wonder bursting with colorful characters, playable vehicles, and open-world adventures waiting to be explored.

Featuring a complete crafting system that lets you build your own weapons and gear, playable vehicles ranging from ships to windsurfers, and dozens of quirky characters to interact with as you explore eight exotic islands filled with tricks, traps, and treasures, Cornerstone is now avialable for pre-order from the Phoenix Online Store (store.postudios.com), GOG.com, the Humble Store, and other major online retailers.

The Viking men of the village of Borja haven’t been seen in years, and Tyrim is determined to set forth and find them: An objective that will send him sneaking deep into the heart of enemy fortresses, combing dank dungeons on a hunt for lost artifacts, and actively taking the fight to the forces of evil as he pursues an increasingly inventive range of quests at the behest of numerous characters. Wielding the young warrior’s crafting and combat skills, you’ll set sail on trusty galleon the Mad Goat across the seas to uncover the world of Nygard’s mysteries, collecting fabulous relics, uncovering forbidden secrets and magic, and ultimately challenging a powerful ancient evil as you quest to bring the Vikings home along the way.

“This is a game that started as a mere dream and expanded to so much more than we could have ever imagined,” says Jonathan Prytz, Lead Game Designer and Artist. “Now that we’re here, the game is done and we couldn’t be prouder of the title! We can’t wait to see and hear what people think about it.”

“A refreshingly original and unique take on epic, open-world action role-playing, Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim aims to transport RPG fans to a world of unforgettable fantasy adventures,” says Scott Steinberg, General Manager of Phoenix Online Publishing. “The game’s one-of-a-kind blend of combat, crafting, and physics-based puzzle solving mechanics, and broad range of playable vehicles and quests, invites players to come along on an incredible journey, the likes of which they’ve never seen before.”
