A Montreal-based indie studio, Borealys Games, launched their Kickstarter campaign for Mages of Mystralia. It is an action-adventure game which allows players to create unique spells. Let’s take a fireball to this, shall we?
Enter a fantasy world where the Mages rule the lands, and players get to alter magic. This fantasy world allows full customization of spells to defeat enemies, which is an often confusing in games like D&D that is wrought with spell components. Combine its concept with the neat graphical aesthetic it possesses and we have Mages of Mystralia!
Since the developers worked hard on a unique magic system augmented by runes, it attracted a legendary final boss. The man who knows all things with respect to fantasy worlds jumped on board with Borealys Games to inject his wisdom. Ed Greenwood‘s narrative vision will no doubt have added to the concept behind Mages of Mystralia. Why is he legendary? He is the man that created the Forgotten Realms universe, written hundreds of books, been featured in Dragon magazines, and owns a publishing company! He doesn’t earn the legendary title for no reason Just be sure not to tick off the dragon because he’ll eat you for breakfast, steal your horde, and then tell the tale in his next book!
The game releases for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in the Spring of this year, though there is no official release date. Over time the company will look into options for porting to the Nintendo Switch and Linux/Mac, though it might be early on those options. That said, in less than 24 hours the project has reached its goal of $25,000 and they have launched the first stretch goal! All the Kickstarter information about the Mages of Mystralia can be found here.
