Thymesia is the upcoming action RPG developed by OverBorder Studio and published by Team 17; featuring souls-like gameplay that will enrapture your deepest desires for a punishing but rewarding experience.

The land of Thymesia is now Overrun by monsters and plague after the once-thriving kingdom’s love and use of alchemy became their undoing. Our main protagonist is named Corvus, a half-human, half-raven hybrid who is the only individual within the kingdom who can seek to understand what truly caused the infestation of the plague.

The world is forebodingly dark with horror lurking around every corner, lovers of lore will feel at home in the breathtaking world.

Discover memories and solve the mysteries behind the plague infestation as you battle through hordes of gruelling abominations and utilize ‘ravening weapons’ to seize the powers of the plague from enemies for your own ability set.
