Mage's Initiation: Reign of the Elements
« on: 21 Feb 2019, 17:41 »
After a decade of development, we're excited to announce that our RPG/Adventure hybrid Mages Initiation: Reign of the Elements has been released!

Current Version: v.1.1
Click here to view a full list of bug fixes and features added since v.1.0. Most notably, the inclusion of a "No Combat" mode (except for boss battles), in order to benefit more casual adventure game players who don't want to deal with random battle encounters and RPG stats.

The Story
D'arc is sixteen years old. He has trained extensively in the Elemental arts for the past decade, under the discerning eyes of the Mage Masters of Iginor. Confined to an existence of academics and magical mastery in their tower, the inquisitive Initiate often wonders what it would be like to explore the secluded outside world.

D'arc's moment of reckoning arrives and his Masters put him to the test. The young Initiate is tasked with retrieving three items, which will test his magical and mental strength to full capacity:

  • A lock of hair from a powerful Enchantress.
  • The unspoiled shell of Griffon's egg.
  • The three-pronged horn of the legendary Trinicorn.

Join D'arc on a perilous journey across the medieval-styled land of Iginor. Brave the perilous Bloodbark forest where the Redcap goblins stalk. Trek across a barren desert wasteland rife with lawless Bandits and fierce Burrowers. Navigate over a vast lake where evil masquerades as beauty. And ascend beyond the lofty mountain peaks where the mysterious and hostile Flyterians dwell, suspicious of all outsiders. It is time for D'arc to prove himself.

Three quests. One chance. Will D'arc succeed and take his place among his fellow Mages?

Beautiful game.  I've played through as an Air Mage, and really loved it...was ecstatic to see it finally come out!


The very end Boss was wayyyy too hard imho, especially for someone like me who always puts an RPG on easiest combat possible (simply because I like the adventure aspect of an RPG much, much more than the fighting), and I think it may have screwed me in the end.  Probably my only complaint though--it was an otherwise gorgeous, enjoyable game with lots to do and explore.  Worth every penny!

Congrats! At some point I was already starting to doubt if it'll ever come out and it's really great to see it finally released. I've watched a couple of reviews and a bit of gameplay and everything looks excellent and very polished. Can't wait to dig in myself.
