A lighthearted hybrid of a point-and-click adventure and a metroidvania platformer, the game takes place in a spooky, ancient Hagmore School of Magic on the night of an important ritual. The preparations are sabotaged, and you, Belle Macfae have been scapegoated into fixing it.

Mystik Belle soundtrack available on BandCamp!



Just in case you didn't know, Dan Rogers' amazing chiptune soundtrack is available on BandCamp for the low-low price of whatever you feel like!

Also, the main branch of the game has received a minor update.
  • Added support for D-Pads on (legacy) Direct Input controllers.
  • Added a brand new VFX for collecting items.
  • Added a short animated clue when passing by the Raccoon lair for the first time
  • Added a subtle indication of the Raccoon lair if a stolen item is inside.
  • Re-spaced the uncensured English dialogue to minimize the "wall of text" effect.
  • Added the E10 versions of Spanish, German and Italian languages.
  • Fixed a minor bug with item-combination.

For those adventurous enough to mess with the WIP DLC scenario, not much has changed.
  • The map has been restructured, with new rooms added and some old ones removed.
  • 2 new enemies added.
  • 1 new prop added. It can't be interacted with yet.

I have finally figured out some design choices for the first DLC, such as the story basics and the first major puzzle. Now to implement it!: )

Mystik Belle is heading to consoles!



Hello Guys and Gals!
WayForward, a company that in the past brought us wonderful original games like Shantae and Mighty Switch Force, is bringing my Mystik Belle to consoles!

The new, console-optimized version is coming to PS4 and Xbox One sometime early this October!
Meanwhile, you can still get the up-to-date, perpetually-PC-optimized version of Belle right here on Steam: )

“Mystik Belle is a great title and quite an accomplishment considering it is mostly the work of a single developer.”
8.7 – GameRamble

“The game looks fabulous, and by combining point-and-click item puzzles and solid sidescrolling combat, it's just a fun, intelligent game to play.”
IndieGames

“The game is also gorgeous, a real impressive work of sprite graphics. Every character and monster is huge and finely detailed, from their slightest movements to their clothing and features.”

About This Game



Being a student of mystical arts is hard work, doubly so if you are Belle MacFae - a freshman student at Hagmore School of Magic. The teachers and the staff are mean, her friends are few, and her grades suck. Worst of all – Belle has a tendency to be at exactly the wrong place at exactly the wrongest time. Like tonight, for example, when she stayed up late to practice her fire magic, but instead got framed for upsetting an ancient ritual. And what better way is there to punish an unlucky first-year student, than to charge her with an impossible task on the worst night of the year? Re-create the Walpurgisnacht Brew, or be expelled, and with all manner of spooks taking over the school, expulsion is starting to sound better by the minute.

Inspired by games like Slightly Magic, Puff in Dragonland, and the Dizzy series, Mystik Belle is a hybrid of a classic point-and-click adventure and a modern metroidvania.



While playing it you can expect to do some of the following:

  • Get hopelessly lost in the massive school building and its surrounding areas.
  • Find items and solve inventory puzzles. Or just clog up your pockets with useless junk.
  • Interact with other inhabitants of Hagmore. Learn clues, help them out, ruin their day with angry flies.
  • Fight through hallways infested by over 60 unique monster types.
  • Defeat 8 bosses.
  • Learn new magical and not-so-magical abilities.
  • Ogle at retina-burningly colorful pixel art.
  • Punch Cthulhu in the face.





  • PLEASE be advised: Mystik Belle is NOT just a metroidvania - it's a true adventure game. You will not get far without having to solve inventory puzzles or talking to people.
  • By default, the game contains some language not suitable for younger kids. A much more kid-friendly E-10 version of the dialogue is included, and can be selected from the options menu.
  • OSx version of the game doesn't support the Steam features like the overlay, achievements and trading cards. I will look for a way to get this sorted out as soon as I can. You can still get the game's internal achievements which will transfer to your Steam achievements once this is fixed.
  • I am temporarily unable to update the Mac version of the game due to changes to OSX and introduction of mandatory developer fees. I will resume Mac updates once I have the money to pay Apple their ransom.
  • Linux version of the game appears to only reliably support the Xbox 360 controller. This is a known issue of all GameMaker Studio games. More information regarding it can be found here.
