In today's daily Kickstarter news, a game that Hero-U wishes it could be! (Okay, so I'm half-kidding.) Mage's Initiation is a 2D Quest for Glory-like Adventure/RPG hybrid by the same team that did the VGA remakes of Quest for Glory II and King's Quest I-III. They seem to have made quite a lot of progress on the game already, too.
Mage's Initiation is a Role-Playing / Adventure Game hybrid, very similar in style and execution to Sierra On-Line's classic Point-&-Click Quest for Glory and King's Quest series. It maintains all the charm of classic and timeless adventure games of yesteryear while adding 21st century innovation to the mix - like multiple game interfaces, and a free-range magical combat system!
We're all very big fans of the adventure genre here at Himalaya Studios, and we feel that Sierra's games really hit their peak in the early 90s. We're working hard to provide a nostalgic experience, reminiscent of that golden era of 2D Sierra adventures circa 1993-1994.
Mage's Initiation has a medieval / fantasy setting and it features multiple playable character classes, spell-casting, and an open-field magical combat system, complete with equippable items and monster loot drops!
Choose Your Class
Earth, Air, Fire, Water... the choice will affect your game-play. From combat strategy to spells and puzzles, each class provides a unique set of challenges. With four ways to live (and re-live) the adventure, you're sure to discover great replay value!
There are even some $6 early bird pledges still available at the moment of writing! Check it out.
