Mages of Mystralia, the spell-crafting, dungeon crawling adventure game from Borealys Games comes to PlayStation and Steam on May 18.
It’ll run you $24.99, which will get you 12 areas, 20+ runes for spell customization and a story written by Ed Greenwood, the author behind the highly influential Forgotten Realms and Dungeons and Dragons stories. The game also touts a soundtrack from famed conductor Shota Nakama, known for his work on Final Fantasy XV and the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
“When we set out to create Mages of Mystralia, we wanted to instill the feeling of being a real mage,” said Borealys Games President Louis-Félix Cauchon. “Mages are wise and creative. They rely on their wits, not physical strength. It was important for us that players be able to use their wits and creativity to play the game the way they wanted to. Unlike other games that use magic as a game mechanic, Mages of Mystralia does not include any pre-rendered, hard coded spells for the player to choose from. The only spells in the game are the ones the players design themselves.”
