Dawn of Magic (Blood Magic)

A russian ARPG from 2005. The international version appeared in 2007. As far as I can tell it got a good amount of attention back when it was released, but has since been forgotten. For some reason the stand-alone expansion Dawn of Magic 2 is available on Steam while the actual base-game is not. 

 

The main reasons why this is worth playing are the art, the music and the unique spell system. You see, some of the skills and most spells can be put into the primary spell slot and can then be combined with spells that fit into the secondary slot. Many combinations that are theoretically possible do unfortunately not work or do work in an unreliable manner, but there is still a lot of potential for playing around. 

 

Other than that the story offers some replay value because during character creation the player can pick an alignment, which will change how things play out a bit.

 

But for a more systematic and thorough take on the game, I have a  write-up on the gog-forums, in case you are interested.
