Action-adventure Game Mages of Mystralia Revealed at GDC 2016
ByDate: Mar 14 2016 Views:
Borealys Games today released a teaser trailer for Mages of Mystralia, a new action-adventure game set in a lively fantasy world in which you can design your own spells.
The story is being written by bestselling author Ed Greenwood, the author of hundreds of fantasy books and creator of the Forgotten Realms fantasy world for Dungeons and Dragons, a world which served as the setting for the classic Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights series of games. Dan Adelman, former head of all things indie for 9 years at Nintendo of America, and currently the business side of Axiom Verge and Chasm, is also deeply involved.
In Mages of Mystralia, you play as Zia, a young girl who discovers that she has been born with an innate ability to work magic. Unfortunately, magic has been banned by the Marquis, so Zia sets off to train on her own and learn control over her magic. On her journey, she encounters danger, but discovers mysterious magical runes—and soon realizes she can combine them in many different ways to craft completely new spells! But Mystralia is in peril; will she master enough magic in time?
Borealys Games is a new studio based in Montreal composed of industry veterans who have worked on games ranging from the Assassin's Creed series through Far Cry to Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
Members of the public interested in learning more about the game are encouraged to sign up for the newsletter at the game's official site and learn how to design their own spells next month at PAX East!
