After several months of hard work, we are thrilled to finally present the Enhanced Edition of The Wizards!

This is our gift to you, dear friends, for all these years of constant support since the Early Access release of the game back in July 2017. We would not get that far without your trust, good word, and constructive feedback.

Have fun and see you in our next VR game!

Cheers!
