The new Sorcery! app, based on Steve Jackson's "Sorcery" books, follows a lone adventurer on a quest to find the Crown of Kings. The story is told in paragraph chunks as you move across the map. Combat is handled with a simple power meter; you choose the strength of your attack. You're essentially crafting your own story as the prose helps you along. It's brilliant to see in action.
