About This Game

Embark in a chaotic quest that takes you all around the mysterious world of The Handbook.

A handcrafted world full of interesting characters

Protect an isolated town and its inhabitants from the dangers that suddenly are at its throat. Meet characters with their own stories, grievances and quests. When the landslide happened, an evil force awakened. Now the town is surrounded, cut out from the rest of the world. You must find the root of this if you want to have a chance of saving the people and continue your journey to find the owner of The Handbook.

Learn powerful spells of legend

You are playing as the wizard apprentice Tim. After only taking a peek at the handbook, it is up to you to learn all the spells you once had at your fingertips. Take hold of the 5 primal elements: water, vision, fire, ice and earth, each with 2 spells. You will aquire these spells as your power grows and your level advances. But your learning doesn't stop here. Tales tell of advanced versions of these spells, make your Healing Stones push enemies away from you or make your Water Tide spawn a helping ward. That is if you can find someone willing to teach you.

Fight the enemies that swarm this land

Slay hordes of wolves, duel with gangs of bandits, brawl with tribes of dwarves and infiltrate the lair of otherworldy creatures. Find the propagators of the evil in this world and put an end to it. Mobility and maneuver is key in handling multiple foes at once.

Discover all the secrets the world has to offer

Visit, run and uncover every corner of the town and its surroundings. Find every hidden mistery, treasure and detail in a beautiful and immersive world.
