What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is the reason we brought our game to Steam first! We are very eager to get community feedback to mold MageQuit into the best possible version of itself.

As mentioned further down in this section, we will be looking to the Steam community to prioritize these features for the full version of the game or even add new ones:
  • 10 elements (currently 4)
  • 46 spells (currently 28)
  • 10+ stages (currently 4)
  • Powerups: random powerups that can change the tide of battle will occasionally drop
  • Steam achievements
  • Online multiplayer (we believe this is vital)
  • AI
  • Co-op campaign
  • Customizable wizards/skins/staffs
  • Build Mode (create reusable spell profiles before you play, decreasing time spent between rounds)
  • Original Soundtrack

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“MageQuit will be in Early Access for 6 - 12 months, depending on what features the community deems vital to the game's success.”

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

“The full version of MageQuit will have all of the following features:

  • Online multiplayer (the community has spoken)
  • 10 elements (currently 4)
  • 46 spells (currently 28)
  • 10+ stages (currently 4)
  • Powerups: random powerups that can change the tide of battle will occasionally drop
  • Steam achievements

The full version of MageQuit will have some of the following features:

  • AI
  • Co-op campaign
  • Customizable wizards/skins/staffs
  • Build Mode (create reusable spell profiles before you play, decreasing time spent between rounds)
  • Original Soundtrack

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version of this game is 100% playable as a local party game. You must have controllers and you must have friends. You cannot play this game by yourself. I cannot emphasize this enough.”

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

“This is contingent on the features we add, but currently we are planning to sell the full version of the game for $14.99.”

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

“We plan to use community feedback heavily in the Early Access phase of development. This will range from accepting ideas for new spells and stages to the general direction we should take the game. We are very excited to have access to such an enormous and active community!”

About This Game

MAGEQUIT IS CURRENTLY IN CLOSED BETA FOR ONLINE MULTIPLAYER! JOIN OUR DISCORD FOR ACCESS INSTRUCTIONS.

MageQuit is a wizard-brawling arena game where up to 10 players use spells and physics to do battle. As a wizard, you are granted a staff with a glowing D20, empowering you with unique elemental spells to battle your opponents. With every kill, your neckbeard and fame grow. Will you end up as Merlin, or be forever cursed with peach fuzz?



MageQuit is a series of skill-based attempts to outsmart your opponent. The spells are dodgeable, so predicting your opponent's aim and movement is crucial, making button-mashing ineffective. One of the best feelings in the game is watching your friend (enemy) walk directly into your well-placed Rockshot and explode into pieces because you guessed right and he or she guessed wrong. And even though your spell aimer is visible to other players, you can secretly apply a curve with your triggers to add an extra element of surprise.

Choose a new spell from 28 available before each round, until you have a full arsenal to destroy your opponents. Harvest the D20s of those you defeat in battle to grow your neckbeard. The wizard with the longest beard after 9 rounds wins!

MageQuit can be played as 2 teams, 3 teams, or free-for-all. Team games present unique challenges, such as pushing an arcane barrier to send the other team off a cliff or scoring a game-winning goal with a giant, flaming puck.

7 Stages


The Coffin - a coffin-shaped island with 2 open sides for falling to your death
The Volcano - a small island surrounded by rising lava with an active volcano in the middle
The Ruins - a basic large island surrounded by rising lava
The Sports - score a goal with the fiery puck and the other team will explode
The Islands - each player or team gets their own island that will randomly sink
The Tower - a ring of land surrounds a tower that can be climbed to on vanishing bridges
The Classic - a basic round island surrounded by rising lava

Game Options


Spell Selection Mode - Draft (choose after each round) or Random
Health - High, Medium, or Low
Number of Rounds - 9-20
Stage Selection - Random or a specific stage

Full Release (Q3/Q4 2017)



Full release will definitely have:
  • Original Soundtrack (complete)
  • Online multiplayer (the community has spoken)
  • 10 elements: 4 primary + 6 hybrid (steam, spark, sand, grass, lava, ice)
  • 46+ spells
  • 10+ stages
  • Steam achievements
  • Power-ups
  • More game options
  • OSX and Linux support

We are excited to get feedback from the Steam community to prioritize these features:
  • AI
  • Co-op campaign
  • Unlockable wizards/skins/staffs
  • Build Mode (create reusable spell profiles before you play)



MageQuit's gameplay was inspired by a Warcraft 3 mod named Warlock. I always loved playing it with my brothers but felt it could benefit from being a single-screen game with controllers and even more spells. The elemental theme and coffin stage were inspired by the Pro Bending Tournaments from Legend of Korra. The Sports stage was inspired by Rocket League.
