50% Discount Coupon for all Mage Tale Owners

Hello everyone,

Beside our goal of offering great deals to our community from time to time, we made The Mage’s Tale to promote VR gaming, and we’re always looking to group up with our fellow devs in our shared goal to push the medium forward. To that end, we’ve partnered with Vertigo Games (makers of the outstanding zombie apocalypse epic Arizona Sunshine), who are offering all owners of The Mage’s Tale a 50% off discount coupon that they can use this month to purchase Skyworld!

About Skyworld

Skyworld is a strategy spectacular that really impressed us, showcasing another way that VR can take a tried and true gaming concept (real-time strategy) and turn it into something truly special. Be like a king or queen moving their pieces over a giant table representing their realm, except this time when the pieces meet, the battle happens right there in front of you. Take a look at the trailer here:

Where can I find my coupon?

When logged into your Steam account, click the envelope located on the top right of your screen to go to your inbox, then go to your inventory where the coupon will be found. In order to claim your discount, all you then need to do is add the game to your cart. Per Valve, “When you add a valid item to your cart, Steam will apply any of your applicable coupons automatically.“

We hope you enjoy it!

“The Mage's Tale is one of VR's biggest games yet…”
PC Gamer

“(A) must-play for RPG fans.”

“A beautiful, classic dungeon crawler with a side order of camp.”


About This Game

The corrupt wizard Gaufroi has kidnapped your master, Mage Alguin, and only you have any hope of saving him. You may be an apprentice now, but to save your master, you will need to explore ten deadly dungeons, decipher mind-bending puzzles, avoid terrifying traps, and vanquish hordes of vicious monsters.

Until you are able to wield every elemental power in the palm of your hand, evil remains ascendant! It is your turn now to sling gouts of flame, javelins of ice, arcs of lightning, and swirling tempests! Don your wizard’s robe and begin your Mage’s Tale!

  • Collect mystic ingredients, which you can use to craft hundreds of custom spells in your very own Mage's Workshop.

  • Explore the ancient crypts, sewers, and dungeons to discover devious traps and secret rooms hidden around every corner.

  • Experience a story that takes place in the same world as The Bard’s Tale series and soon before the events of The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep!

  • The Mage's Tale is an adventure designed from the ground up to capture the magic of the VR gaming experience.
