New Arc Line | Story Trailer

Set during the gilded age of magic and technology, New Arc Line welcomes players to a troubled world: The New World looms on the horizon, the shining city of progress, and the last beacon of hope in your search for a cure to your family's fatal disease.

But you will soon discover that the city's beauty runs only skin-deep; tensions growing between different factions in the world of arcane magic and steampunk gadgets, the rich exploiting the poor, the humanoid hunting the monstrous, and in the middle of it all you, a stranger in a strange land, unaware of the role you have to play in shaping the future of this world... Which side will you choose? What will you become?

New Arc Line - Interview @ GamingBolt

by Hiddenx, 16:23

GamingBolt talked with Creative director Vladyslav Dobrovolskyi about New Arc Line:

New Arc Line Interview – Setting, Combat, Player Choice, and More

Creative director Vladyslav Dobrovolskyi speaks with GamingBolt about Dreamate's upcoming RPG.

A vivid setting that blends fantasy and steampunk, a world rife with commentary on very real issues, choice and consequence mechanics to allow players to shape their own story, combat and progression systems inspired by genre classics- based on what we’ve seen of it so far, Dreamate’s upcoming CRPG New Arc Line is making some very intriguing promises that, as a fan of RPGs, you’re going to find tough to not be excited by. Due out later this year for PC and consoles, New Arc Line seems to have all the elements in place to deliver a memorable experience, and to learn more about what will make it tick, we recently reached out to its developers with a few of our questions. Below, you can read our interview with creative director Vladyslav Dobrovolskyi.


New Arc Line’s part-fantasy, past-steampunk setting is looking quite fascinating, even if it’s just its genre-blending aesthetic we’re looking at. What served as your primary inspirations when coming up with the game’s setting?

For us, it was like traveling back in time, trying to explore the boundaries between different genres while learning from previous successful projects. For example, Planescape: Torment offered players almost endless worlds with unique creatures and ideas that pushed the boundaries of everyone’s imagination. On the other hand, Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura features a world where magic and technology conflict, but somehow coexist to create a complex society with a rich history.

These games showed us how deep you can go into creating a world where every corner is filled with exciting stories. We wanted to create something similar, but with our unique perspective, where you, as an explorer of ancient ruins, discover not only buried treasures but also the forgotten stories they hold.

But we faced a so-called “threshold of entry” into such a complex philosophy. After all, a long time had passed since the release of those games, and many players were used to more familiar, traditional fantasy settings. At that moment, Disco Elysium came to our attention and showed us how to create a clear entrance to an unusual world with the most phantasmagoric solutions, with the main plot revealing itself to you step by step. You seem to start as an ordinary detective, but gradually, the plot unfolds, and you discover more and more intriguing layers of the story. Each new character you meet reveals more and more details about the game world, and each task you encounter allows you to delve deeper into the strangeness of the fictional world.

New Arc Line - Where Magic meets Steel

by Hiddenx, 21:18

Magic and mechanics don't go along well in New Arc Line:

New Arс Line: Where Magic Meets Steel

"Welcome, travelers from the Old World… and beware!"

You are about to step into New Arc, a city where the arcane and the mechanical don't simply coexist but, in fact, clash in an epic struggle for supremacy; two titans on the edge of a cliff, each trying with all their might to throw the other off. A precarious balance that could be toppled by even a small push from an unexpected direction. Every nook and cranny whispers secrets here, and every step you take could either drown you in trouble or shower you in gold.

Magic vs Mechanics: When Worlds Collide

Forget everything you thought you knew about magic — in New Arc, it's not just a bunch of spells, cantrips and incantations. Here, magic is a faith, a bona fide religion with various branches and sects, each vying to pull you into their embrace. And the technologies? These range from billowing steam engines to bone-shaking electromagnetic gadgets. It will be up to you to select which you master, how you use them to change the world around you, and which side you join. Will you endeavor to make New Arc a technologists' utopia or help the magic users reshape it into a haven for the arcane arts?

New Arc Line - Closed Alpha is coming

by Hiddenx, 17:13

You can join the alpha phase of New Arc Line:

Wanna Be the First to Play New Arc Line? Closed Alpha is Coming!

Greetings, esteemed Mages and Technologists alike!

Excuse our short period of silence, we have been tinkering with the technological marvels of game development. And you know how easy it is to lose track of time like that, it's almost like being under some kind of a spell.

Either way, this absolute laser-focus on work allowed us to make great strides forward in making New Arc Line. While the game is by no means ready yet for the full public spotlight, we will be running a closed, private playtest soon. We are at a stage when we need to gather feedback from a smaller group of players and fans, and we want you to be a part of it!

If you would like to be present even in these early development stages and leave your mark on New Arc Line, we cordially invite you to join Fulqrum Publishing's Champions program - this will allow you to play the alpha version of our game soon, when we start our closed playtest. Just send an e-mail to and they will prepare you to embark to the New World!

New Arc Line - Arcanum inspired RPG announced

by Hiddenx, 15:04

Wizard Worm presents a spiritual successor of Arcanum -  New Arc Line from the Ukrainian developer Dreamate:

New Arc Line - Arcanum Successor Announced (Party-Based RPG)


New Arc Line takes place in a fantasy world undergoing a technological revolution, much like the United States' on the brink of the 20th century. It’s a period of disruptive change, of great conflict between the old ways and brand new systems.

Your journey starts in the shining metropolis of New Arc. Millions of immigrants, mages and technologists of various races arrive here by steamboats and zeppelins searching for a better life.

But beneath the golden facade social tensions are mounting, segregation, inequality and corruption runs rampant. The civil war is looming.

A single ambitious immigrant might tip the balance and decide the fate of this world.
Will you rise to the occasion?

In this world, Technology and Magic are incompatible with each other.
One obeys the natural laws, the other rips them apart.

Many paths ahead of you, none of them easy.
What will you choose?
