Spellcrafter: The Path Of Magic, turn-based tactical RPG

I am happy to announce our new game, Spellcrafter: The Path Of Magic, turn-based tactical RPG, is coming soon (Q1 2015!) to iOS, Android and Windows Phone! Below you'll find the description of the game and a few early screenshots. Cheers!

“Magic is not an art or religion. Magic is a craft.

Experience an amazing and unforgettable adventure set in a dark fantasy universe!

Spellcrafter: The Path of Magic is an RPG game with deep tactical turn-based combat and a unique spell casting system. Explore the magical world, collect gold, interact with NPCs, take quests and make moral choices! Recruit heroes, assemble and summon powerful troops and send them into battle!

The unique feature of Spellcrafter: The Path of Magic is the spell casting system. The game recognizes the sign you draw on the screen and automatically chooses the appropriate spell from the spellbook. If you don’t remember the correct sign you are able to consult the spellbook, but beware! Reaching for the spellbook takes additional time and the quicker you cast your spell, the more powerful it will be!

The game is divided into 3 acts. Each act tells a part of a compelling and magical story about the nature of reality, power and morality. Additionally each of them features 3 levels with a different setting and a different playable character (human, necromancer, elf).”


Spellcrafter: The Path of Magic will be a Premium Game (no IAPs, no F2P mechanics) available in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian and Polish.

Turnbased is always good, and I like the environment shown in the screenshots.
So, bookmarked; will keep an eye on it.

I will keep you posted as the price is still unknown, but should be pretty attractive. The game will be out in Q1, so it's just matter of weeks now before we will have all the info. Cheers!

Looks good and sounds good, how deep is it strategically? A lot of these games have let me down by having dummed down combat.

I think we'll post a newer video closer to the release, however the combat mixes a few mechanics and you get:

- different troops with different combat style, stats, etc.
- magical cards with specific spells
- spells (that you draw on the screen)
- special abilities for each kind of unit
- special abilities for your character

What's more your playable heroes can hire different kinds of troops and the combat arenas are also varied, with obstacles, bridges, fences, walls, etc., so in general there are many tactics you can use and a lot of stuff to unlock in matter of abilities, etc..
