Ever since the success of Almost Human's Legend of Grimrock back in 2012, there's been a steady trickle of suspiciously similar games released by various no-name indie devs, most of which have been ignored by the Codex and pretty much everybody else. But here's one dungeon crawler that seems to be a cut above the rest of the clones, with a unique premise and some interesting features. It's called 7 Mages, by Czech developer Jindřich Rohlík of Napoleon Games, and it's just been released on Steam Early Access. Why Early Access? Because it's a straight port of the game's mobile version, also released today on Android and iOS, and the developer would like to use the Early Access period to beef it up for the PC. Here's the launch trailer and description:



The oppressed peasants on Roven Island hire seven mages to protect their homes and crops.

The legendary Roven Island is said to be the place where the gods rested after they created the world. The earth, water and air there are still imbued with magic, which lures magic prospectors. These prospectors conduct savage raids at regular intervals on one of the unnamed villages on the island, robbing the hard-working peasants of most of their harvest. And so, one day, the peasants put together the last of their coin and hire the mages to protect them.

The epic RPG 7 Mages in the tradition of the greatest classics of the genre takes you around the magical island of Roven. You will visit gloomy crypts beneath the city, cross an icy mountain pass, submerge beneath the surface of the ocean and venture into the guts of a dead dragon. And lots more too! The game offers unique and very tactical turn-based combat with the option to split up your team, use combat magic, elemental magic and all-new musical magic.
  • A fantasy game reworking of the legendary movies Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven
  • 14 fantastic environments
  • More than 30 types of enemy, most of them bringing new elements into combat
  • Highly tactical turn-based combat with the option to split up your team
  • 60 combat, elemental and musical spells
  • Original puzzles on each new level
More information about 7 Mages is available on its official website. I also recommend checking out this post about the game by esteemed Codex commentator V_K.
