[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Festival of Magic is an adventure RPG with a Nordic take on an Eastern genre.

Grow spuds, mushrooms and plants and use your harvest as powerful ammunition or spells; craft your weapons and team up your companions for battle. Solve challenging puzzles, collect rare items and explore various dungeons scattered across the world.  

Festival of Magic features:

  • Plant and harvest your own ammunition
  • Craft upgrades to your spud gun
  • Pair up with different companions to specialize your attacks
 

We’ve created our own IP while developing the prototype. Using a turn based combat system, we are also trying to innovate with some new strategy elements we haven’t seen in this genre before, like farming your own ammunition.
