What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With most of the content now available in MageWorks, Early Access is helping to establish a general idea of what players can expect in this game and how they would like to see MageWorks develop further. Community feedback has already been a huge help with user experience and making the game fun for players new to VR as well as VR veterans.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“MageWorks has been in Early Access since July of 2016. Just over a year and a few months of development, and the game is almost ready to be released!”

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

“MageWorks is being developed in a modular fashion that builds the core mechanics of gameplay at an early stage which can then be expanded based on community feedback. Subsequent builds will have more worlds to explore, more spells to unlock, new and more aggressive characters that fight back, as well as the MageWorks woodshop, ink shop, and crystal shop so players can customize their staves. The full release of MageWorks will include 5 magic-themed worlds each with 4 assault points containing spells to discover. Three 'quick play' areas and a study hall allow players to jump right in and practice their spell casting. The training and crafting tutorials also follow narratives to guide players through the process of combat and staff construction. And last but not least, when players build there staffs in MageWorks, they can teleport over to their staff altars and raise there staff in the air which will export their staff design for 3d printing!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Most of the content intended to be in MageWorks is now integrated. The next month or two will be to bug crunch, improve art, optimize environments, improve a.i., and make sure game settings and sounds are easily adjusted and environment states are saved per design intent.”

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

“The price will not change when MageWorks leaves Early Access.”

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

“Bi-weekly announcements about development will be integral in the content creation process. This allows for time to both build and test content before deploying the build. This timeline also ensures players that the game will not be abandoned and that we are receptive to player feedback.”

About This Game

MageWorks is a mage simulation combat and crafting game. Players flip through their spellbooks and use their staff to cast the spells. Travel to distant lands discovering new spells and enemies.

Spellbooks can be customized! With a unique bookmarking system, players can bookmark their favorite spells which places that spell into a custom spellbook. Using these bookmarks, players can tune their spellbooks to best fit their play-style and select magic that is suitable for different environment types.

Players can also customize their staff! By collecting wood, crystals and flowers in the wild, mages can create ink to draw their designs, carve and shape wood, and grind crystals to create a unique staff. The staff you create can also be 3D printed so you can bring a part of your game into reality!

MageWorks is an Early Access title that is constantly evolving and actively integrates player feedback.
