What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As with Puzzle Pirates twenty years ago, we hope to launch Puzzle Wizards with the help of our loyal players' feedback and support. We've been iterating during secret alpha tests for nearly a year, shipping an average of 2-3 releases a month. We believe we have a fun, playable experience. Now it's time to release the game to a wider audience and hear your thoughts!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Puzzle Wizards to be in early access for a year or so.”

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

“The launch release of Puzzle Wizards will have greater end-game content, including new seasonal themes and opportunities for Wizard Orders to collaborate, build and explore the world together. We also hope to add some friendly PvP features, for example tournaments and contests.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Puzzle Wizards has been in development for three years and frieNDA alpha testing for a year. The game is full-featured: all the features in the 'About This Game' description on its Steam page are implemented. Some Wizards have played for 500+ hours, but there is limited end-game content. There are bugs and some rough edges. The game is available on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store in addition to Steam and plays well cross-platform.”

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

“Puzzle Wizards is a 'free to play' game that uses an in-game currency, Dazzle, to allow players to purchase cosmetics and some upgrades, for example creating and building a Wizard Guild. We plan to expand the items and content available to be unlocked with Dazzle as well as add lots of free stuff. We do not expect to alter the prices of Dazzle packages or the Dazzle cost of items purchased in-game. If based on player feedback we do adjust Dazzle costs downwards we will make efforts to compensate earlier purchasers. After launch we will continue to add new Dazzle items but expect to make few, if any, changes to existing Dazzle costs.”

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

“We have an active Discord and will be conducting AMA's / town hall events alongside continuous game design feedback and discussion during development. We anticipate holding interviews with interested players to learn more about their experience with the game and gather feedback.”

About This Game

Puzzle Wizards is a cozy co-op cross-platform puzzle MMO from the creators of Puzzle Pirates. Master the harvest, mixing and battle puzzles to go on exciting adventures with friends in the wilds. Earn valuable resources and treasures to build and customize your village and home with furniture and decorations. Win funky familiars and craft fancy robes, hats, wands and more on your journey to Arch Wizard ascension. Team up and work together with your fellow Wizards to build Guilds and restore the world!

Puzzle Wizards is powered by three puzzles: Harvest, Mixing and Battle. Each have their purpose in the heartwood realms:
  • Harvest: use your match-3 skills to gather resources from the world.
  • Mixing: craft clothes, hats, wands, potions and other useful items with this line-drawing puzzle, whilst fending off the challenges of naughty ingredients.
  • Battle: defeat the enemy spirits of the Wildwoods with the fast-paced battle puzzle, sliding to make four tile and larger matches and flipping attacks back to your foes.

Voyage into the wildwoods on solo and co-operative adventures to gather resources, recipes and rare drops. Wilds are themed as Sun, Moon and Star with inner, middle and outer difficulties. Adventures are in quick, bite-sized chunks of around fifteen to thirty minutes of fun. Wildwood clearings can be chained together, increasing in difficulty as you progress. Difficulty is adapted to the number of players in your party -- it's possible to solo or play in a group of four or more -- and it's easy to drop in and drop out without stranding your team-mates.

The arch-wizard has entrusted you with your own village. The place has fallen on hard times! You'll need to clear the tangled woods with magical sparks from adventures, rescue lost villagers, rebuild theirs shops and redecorate with crafted items and loot from the wilds. Build, expand and customize your own house and fill it with a menagerie of magical familiars. The village is your personal space and a solo progression path, developing your access to cosmetics and empowering items like wands, charms and potions.

Puzzle Wizards has a full friend system and will add your Steam friends who are playing automatically. There is chat built-in to the game. You can also meet new friends adventuring and in Wizard Guilds. The game is friendly and co-operative: there's no place for negative behavior and bad language is filtered.

Wizards band together to form Guilds to bravely explore the dangerous middle and outer wilds, facing down scary monsters and other spirits. You'll need to help out with construction work to build the Guild Towers that will grant your guild access to the most challenging wilds and lairs. Relax in the Wizards Tavern after adventures and challenge each other wand duels. In the future we'll be adding more social 'parlor' games and tournaments, too!

Puzzle Wizards' content will expand with seasonal theme releases offering new adventures, loot and advanced gameplay challenges.

Our first theme will feature the 'Fairy Wilds'. The poor Fairies have been set about by nefarious 'SoloGro Bros' whose only goal is to profit by making mutated crops and monstrous machines. We've been testing the Fairy Wilds and expect to release this theme a month or so after early-access launch.
