About This Game

Experience everyday life as a magician in a medieval village. Balance spending time with your family with building friendships or finding romance with other villagers. Find work as a guard, scribe, farmer, or even a thief. Deal with relentless bullies one way or another. Play in chess tournaments, explore a necromancer's cave, go to the library, or practice your sword fighting in the sparring ring.

The Magician's Burden is a 210,000 word interactive slice of life novel by Samuel Young, where your choices control the story. It's text-based, with vivid character illustrations, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Play as male, female, or nonbinary; romance whoever you like.
  • Cast spells with a wave of your fingertips: turn invisible, throw fireballs, heal wounds, and more.
  • Use demonic magic—at a price—or resist the temptation.
  • Read approximately 40k words per play-through!

Oh, yes. You also have a demon living inside your head. He talks to you and occasionally offers you his demonic powers.
