The first and only so far paropank-style game, which can be compared to the monumental Baldur’s Gate in the history’s interestingness, and to develop dialogues with Planescape: Torment. The universe of Arcanum resembles Victorian England or early America, praised by Jules Verne and O. Henry. Houses smoked – coal smoke is eaten in everything. Gray rains of Foggy Albion. The Taranta newspaper is a poured “Times”. Men wear frock coats and cylinders, ladies – lush velvet dresses with heavy skirts. Lanterns – the poured XIX century. In this world there are two opposing forces – magic and technology. Since ancient times, magic has dominated Arcanum. But recently invented a steam engine, the growth of industry and invention began, and it turned out that the technology works well for people, not requiring, like magic, some special abilities. In addition, it is cheaper: you can light the whole city with gas lamps or warm the house with steam heating. At first it seemed that everything was for the better, but it soon became clear that magic and technology … harm each other. Wherever they rely on charms, the mechanisms quickly break down and fail, and the sorcerer in sickness will not be helped by scientific medicine; and vice versa, an engineer can not be healed by magic and you do not ride on a carpet-plane. In a city where there are too many sorcerers, steam engines cease to function, and places that are abundant with technology make the spells go out. And from these extraordinary scenes gradually emerges a shadow of evil, which is determined to destroy all life.
