What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’ve learnt that when developing VR games, you have to gather feedback from the players as soon as possible. We want to make sure that all the solutions and features we provide are fun to play, add to the immersion and meet the players' expectations. We’re also open to players’ ideas and suggestions for future content updates.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We'll release the full version of The Wizards as soon as we implement all the planned content updates as well as improvements and new features based on players’ feedback. Early Access period shouldn't last longer than 5-6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to add following features:

  • Master Enchantments - six new powerful spell upgrades for ultimate wizardry
  • New Fate Cards - additional set of game modifiers that let players experience completely new battles

We also want to implement content based on players’ ideas, be it new spells, new enemies, new challenges etc.

For more details please check this FAQ thread.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and contains most of the planned mechanics and features, including:

  • Campaign mode with three Regions divided into stages + cutscenes, tutorial, shooting range and the Wizard’s tower.
  • Six powerful spells with upgrades for each of them
  • Fate Cards that allow players to modify the rules of the game and gain more points
  • Arcade Mode - arena battles for those who never get enough of spell fighting
  • Online leaderboard that allows players to compete with high scores
  • Free movement and free teleportation locomotion

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The final price may change slightly depending on amount of new content and features added during Early Access period.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Since players’ feedback and ideas are crucial to The Wizards development, we want to encourage them to communicate with us through:

The Wizards Community Hub on Steam
Survey for the players
Forum on the game’s official website
Dedicated Discord server with periodic Q&As with devs

Update 1.2.1 Shrike Desert



Brave Wizards!

We’re excited to let you experience brand new chapter of the game as an open beta - meet Shrike’s Desert! It’s a third story chapter of the game and one of our main promises for the Early Access. We’ve finished two stages of this chapter and decided to invite you to test it and share your feedback before we put the final touches to this section of the game.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icFy9BUTIpY

Update 1.2.1 Changelog:

Shrike’s Desert - New Region:
  • The Shrike Desert is located in eastern Meliora. It is a lifeless landscape ravaged by dense, magic-fueled sandstorms. At the central point of the region lie the ruins of Shrike’s Lookout, an ancient sandstone fortress that has been torn apart by a violent magical explosion many centuries ago. The aftershocks of that explosion still resonate among the ruins, and allow ethereal phenomena to pass through the veil between worlds and haunt the area. Indeed a perfect spot to look for a villain…

Ethereal Phantoms - New Enemy:
  • Odd apparitions that roam the desert and come after any newcomer
  • Deal damage and are destroyed upon impact
  • Invulnerable to regular spells - can only be defeated with Ethereal Spears

Desert Serpents - New Enemy:
  • Enormous, semi-sentient guardians brought to life by an ancient spell that spring up from beneath the sand to hurl fire-based spells at trespassers
  • Can spawn anywhere on a mostly flat, sandy surface
  • Two attacks: a fiery orb similar to Pyroblast and a fiery barrage that rains from above

Ethereal Spear - New Spell:
  • New type of Ethereal Magic used to get rid of ethereal phantoms and barriers
  • Place your hand in the ethereal lantern to infuse yourself with the ethereal power which allows to summon Ethereal Spears

New Fate Cards:
  • Two new cards hidden in the desert regions:
  • Fortify: The player has more Time Synchronization points (multiplier: -0.25)
  • Fragile: The player has less Time Synchronization points (multiplier: +0.25)

Fixes and improvements:
  • Polished hit animations
  • Improved throwing with Fireball and Pyroblast while walking
  • Minor optimization fixes for Mountainpass Castle arena
  • Shamans’ projectiles are now homing slightly towards the player

Support for KAT WALK VR Treadmill:
  • From this update, The Wizards natively supports KAT VR treadmill. Ask your local VR arcade about it, it's a blast!
  • Game can also be played with WASD on experimental locomotion peripherals

What's next?
In the following weeks, we’ll be working on a third, final stage of Shrike’s Desert. It will be released along with some new content in the previous stages, thus expanding and fleshing out the story of you and Aurelius.

Many thanks for all the amazing support and brilliant suggestions we received from you! We invite you to visit our Discord server and share your feedback. We also encourage you to write reviews to share your experience with fellow players on Steam.
