What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Are You A Wizard is fully playable, and I want to get it into people's hands as soon as possible to gauge the reaction. Not all of the assets are finished yet, and there are plenty of features still yet to come, but I have been working on it for a long time and want to know that I'm heading in the right direction as I bring it toward the finish line.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I would like to think we will be out of Early Access in about another year when the ending can be finished, along with some other key features. Everything else is basically good enough for a full release already, but I'll of course still be working out kinks as I find them and adding various features!”

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

“Before the full release, I plan to add:
  • Further UI improvements
  • A more substantive ending to the game
  • Lots more content variety!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable, though the UI is perpetually under construction. There are some bugs, and there is not a proper ending yet. You may occasionally experience game-breaking crashes.”

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

“Price will not change when we leave early access.”

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

“It is important to me that players are enjoying the game. If they are not, then I want to know why and will seriously take it into consideration. I'll be watching the message board!”

About This Game

Are You A Wizard is a game about being a wannabe spell-caster in a labyrinth full of magic and monsters. Can you survive long enough to find powerful spells that will pave your path to victory? Or will you die tragically while experimenting with unknown magic, surrounded by hostile creatures? Will you really learn magic, or will you just try everything until you get lucky?


  • Procedural spell generation that makes spells with widely varying effects, targeting methods, strengths, and durations.
  • Procedural spell name generation! Can you crack the code to figure out what your spells will do before you use them?
  • Procedural level generation that can make anything from a maze of small rooms and snaking tunnels to one big room filled with obstacles.
  • Upgrades along the way that can have huge effects on how you play.
  • A fog of war system that lets you see everywhere you've been, but not what it looks like now or what may lurk there.
  • Lots of pots and crates to smash!
  • Walls that can be moved or destroyed with the right tools -- and who knows what you might find behind them!
  • A variety of items that may help or hurt you along the way.
  • Subtle turn-based play that lets you take as long as you want to make decisions, but doesn't bog you down with too much waiting.
  • The unexpected is around every corner! Be prepared for hilarity or tragedy to strike at any moment!
