Spellcrafter Hopes to Cast a Spell on Steam with Launch

Most RPGs offer copious magical spells and abilities as standard. However, not many of them actually have players do anything other than select them from a menu.

Spellcrafter asks players to cast spells by drawing different symbols on screen. With the potential for tons of signs to remember, you’ve also got a spell book to refer to. The spellbook doesn’t actually pause the game though, meaning you’re rewarded for quick spellcasting (and memorization).

This casting concept is pretty unique as far as tactical RPGs are concerned, so Spellcrafter may appeal to folks for that reason alone. Spellcrafter is available for a discounted cost of $7.99 on Steam until May 11.
