THQ UK website - Windows:
    Summoners have toppled empires and challenged gods. They are venerated as saviours and feared as destroyers. With rings crafted by the ancient Khosani, the gifted can call forth demons, dragons, and elementals, but only the strongest can control the forces they unleash. As one of the last remaining Summoners, Joseph has yet to embrace or control his power. To save their kingdom from annihilation, Joseph and his reluctant party must journey to the lost empire of Ikaemos, the island monastery of Iona, and the forest labyrinth of Liangshan. Their quest for the Summoner's rings is the only hopeful solution for salvation. Depth and involvement of gameplay evokes film-like escapism
