Wizards of Prestige (Wizard Academy Sim + RPG) - Testers Needed!

Hello! Here's the 1st time reveal of our game, Wizards of Prestige:

Greetings, we're David, Don, & Kenneth, a 3-man indie mobile game studio called Loqheart. We made a previous mobile game called Cannon Cat, which was featured by Apple a while ago. Wizards of Prestige is our 2nd title.

What kind of game is "Wizards of Prestige"?

Wizards of Prestige is a free-to-play game where you get to run your own wizard academy, and go on RPG missions with your wizards. (Some have called it "Harry Potter meets GameDevStory") It's made with hand-crafted pixel art, and will be a combination of a school management game and a light RPG.

Show me some more sweet pixel art!

How far along is development?

We're still in the middle of development. We have already spent 2 years designing what this game is going to be, but we've just started building it out. Wizards of Prestige is designed for mobile/tablets, but we're also working on a playable pre-alpha that you can play from your browser, so we can have testers try it out and give us feedback.

Sounds great! How do I get to be a Pre-Alpha Tester?

To get a chance to be one of the first testers, please sign-up here:

Thanks for checking out our game!

Sounds interesting I did love game dev story and many other kairosoft titles and I do like wizards and rpg mechanics.

But I only play iPhone and I'm guessing the browser version wouldn't work there? Have you thought about using testflight?

Good point, when we have a mobile version later on, we'll consider using testflight as well to do some beta-testing.

But to reach people earlier in the design process, we thought the web would be best. We don't have to deal with different screen sizes, phones, etc. We are building out the demo using HTML5/WebGL, so it might be possible to play it via browser on your mobile phone, but we're still looking into that.

Definitely sign up if you're interested, we appreciate feedback of any sorts even if you rather try it out later when we have a mobile verison.

I signed up anyway will just have to see if it's playable on my device when it's up. But I understand it's pretty early on from what you said.

Did you guys show off your game to PocketGamer at one of their Big Indie Pitches? I seem to recall seeing this game before

Looks great though!
