What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is currently in a playable state but we would like to refine and expand on it so we chose to go into Early Access. We would like to add additional balancing and features to the game based on feedback from the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that the game will be in Early Access for about a month. This will allow us time to incorporate feedback and evolve the game with new systems.”

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

“We'd like to add in more Magician choices and further Upgrades. We'd like to extend gameplay distance. We're implementing permanent systems to each window, where-in by using each system you're working towards permanent upgrades for those systems over time. We're interested in adding a Hireling system where you can send out timed Hirelings to bring back rewards as well as a timed research system. We'd like to add a bestiary, where fighting enemies researches them for extra bonuses. We'd also like to add a summoning circle which is a secondary continuous battling system where you work towards a powerful boss type enemy with large rewards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay is completed and roughly balanced. Players can advance through stages fighting experiments and gaining research. You can choose between 10 Magicians as your Hero.
You can find a variety of currencies to spend in different windows at different traders. There are offline rewards and daily/weekly login bonuses already in the game. The prestige system is functioning correctly with 2 different prestige currencies. We're in the process of adding the permanent advancement window systems called window factions that allow you to upgrade each system over time through usage of the system.”

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

“The Magician's Research is currently Free-To-Play in Early Access and will remain Free-To-Play after launching.”

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

“We highly value feedback from the community and will be active in the Steam discussion and news feed. We will also collect feedback from players in the Magician's Research Discord!”

You’re on your way to the Mage’s Guild as the newest recruitee when you run into Aliseth the Master of the Mage’s Guild. He informs you that somehow the magical experiments of the mage’s tower have broken free and seems to be magically multiplying by the moment. He needs every able body out to research and then dispose of the experiments before they can disturb the nearby towns or duplicate infinitely!
You, being the eager Mage-ling you are, decide to oblige your new boss and head off into the fields of the surrounding areas to slay some mighty beasties!

Well… Now that’s the question isn’t it? Choose from one of 10 magician’s, each with their own special bonuses! (You can change at any time). Play as the one you think looks the best, the one with your favorite bonus, or be a changeling and flip around as they suit your situation.

Well you and the enemy both have health, so be careful! You’ll want to try to stay alive to get to the next experiments to research. You can tap the enemy with a left click to do damage. If your health gets low you can click heal yourself or drink a health potion! Use DPS potions for extra short term damage and energy regen for extra clicking!
(Automation: You can also use the auto-clicks that will click for you. The auto-move will attempt to progress you forward every 30 minutes until you’re defeated again).

You give it to someone who wants it, but don’t give it for free! Make sure they give you something to make you a better Mage!! Always try to be a better Mage.
At the TRADERS you can trade Liquid Gold, Runes, and Dragon Eggs.

Watch out for that Curse Eater though, she may be cute but she’s super scary! Who puts a bow on a pink skull? ...Who has a pink skull??

Go find some more experiments! Get stronger, do more research. Level up and get some skill points. Spend them to get good bonuses from the SKILL TREE.
Be careful of those ELITE EXPERIMENTS though. They might have some cool rewards but they hurt!

Oh that’s probably just someone trying to give you a quest! Quests are a good way to earn extra rewards! You can store up to 10 Quests and 2 Campaign Quests that have even bigger rewards. They automatically fill back up each weekend, but you can also find them randomly while you're playing. (Villagers just like asking you to do things!)

Get stronger, go further! Keep at it! We have faith you’ll be the strongest Magician ever! (Maybe).
