Spell me the details


Have you ever played a fighting game like Street Fighter or Tekken? Ignis is totally unlike either of them but still offers loads of competitive fun! Choose one of many powerful wizards and take part in a competition of spells! Make no mistake, this is no spelling competition. Ignis is epic, spectacular and - above all – magical!

Let's get into the details, shall we? Every character has one unique passive ability, a few spells and one ultimate incantation available to use. Wizards can launch projectiles, which serves as a basic means of damaging your opponent, or his pride at least. In case of a magical barrage, you can always hide behind a magical barrier or use a summoned familiar as cannon fodder.



There are four types of spells in Ignis: The Magic of Destruction, which is pretty self explainatory. The Magic of Life restores health, creates barriers and buffs characters, The Magic of Nature allows the user to transform the terrain and to control... well, nature. Lastly, there's The Magic of Secrets, which involves curses. All four categories are very diverse on their own. For example, The Magic of Nature can be used to create defensive blocks or attack the enemy with vines or even spawn a destructive black hole.



Every type of magic also has its flaws. It's super tough to battle against a skilled shaman but his cursing abilities aren't as relevant as one might think. The Magic of Secrets is a powerful force that can change the course of battle in no time but it actually needs a bit of luck to take effect on the opponent! So remember – even the mightiest foe has a weakness that can be used against him.

Party of one



We adore League of Legends! One guy from our team was so into it, he even managed to advance to the diamond division. Competition is his middle name. He has spent whole nights battling other players. There's only one thing that didn't quite click with him, and we as a team don't appreciate it either. One tiny mistake during a 50 minute match can completely ruin your chances for victory in League of Legends. Just like one small misstep shatters your chances with the prettiest girl at the party. Um... yeah, that’s some food for thought.



Anyway, we wanted to create a competitive game which could retain the pure fun of rivalry that we love in League of Legends, while making the outcome of the battles less dependent on those small slip ups. It’ll feel less stressful that way and kind of more fun, we'd say. In addition, we’ve chosen a 1v1 style of gameplay, so the players can’t blame their losses on that one friend whose mom is yelling at him to go to bed. Sorry, Chris.



That's how we came up with the idea for Ignis – a magic themed battle game with a complex ranking system directly inspired by LoL. The game will offer 7 leagues, divided into 5 divisions, with the title of archmage waiting for the best of the best! Battles will use the popular “best of 3” system and players will collect special points that will grant them a chance for promotion.



Oh, did we mention split-screen? Yup, we love couch gaming parties, so we're going split-screen!

About This Game

Ignis is a skill-based game of the battle arena category.



The core mechanic is the ability to control trajectories of projectiles.
It is crucial to so thoughtfully, as the arena may contain huge amounts of magical objects.
There are also multiple spells of all other sorts: AoE, summoning spells, battle cries, curses.
All of those can be dynamically upgraded in-game, allowing through conscious game design for an enemy to be dominated not only by the sheer power of one’s spells, but also by one’s unique playstyle.



The single-player mode will offer an array of varied game modes modifying the rules - projectiles bouncing off walls, power-ups appearing randomly on the map, a challenge mode in which the AI is much more difficult to beat, etc.
There will also be training, challenge and duel modes available in single-player.



The game will also offer multiplayer, both in split-screen and online modes.
There will also be a elo-esque ranking system, extendable to make League of Legends-style divisions and seasons possible.
