Realms of Magic is a 2D sandbox roleplaying indie game set in a classic western fantasy universe. Immerse yourself in the game’s compelling single player mode or dive into the diverse multiplayer mode.
Realms of Magic combines the best aspects from a multitude of genres, boasting the lively setting and character development of an RPG; alongside the creative freedom of a sandbox game; twitch based movement and combat from an action platformer; also city building and management from strategy games.
The main idea behind this game is to give the player free rein over the creation of the world and character; the only boundary in this game is your imagination.
The inspiration behind the game comes from a mixture of Skyrim and Dwarf Fortress, presented in a Terraria-like sandbox.
Realms of Magic universe has everything you could expect from a fantasy setting: dwarves, elves and orcs battling one another; undead, demons and dragons ravaging villages and cities; mythical monsters guarding ancient ruins full of gold and magic items.
Life isn’t easy in the Realms. Common people live in harsh, deprived conditions, their lives are often cut short due to the perilous nature of their work. Nobles, rich merchants and kings, live in luxury, exploiting the common people for power and wealth. Thievery, murder and corruption run rife in the realms, slave trade is demanded and legal in most regions.
Our universe is inspired by many other great universes like Tolkien’s Middle-earth, D&D’s Forgotten Realms, Warcraft, Elder Scrolls and Game of Thrones.
The main goal of Realms of Magic is to let you the player do anything you could possibly desire in a fantasy game.
Fight for good and become a hero or play mercilessly as a villain. Become an adventurer, be a man of the people, protect the commoners from bandits. And why not delve into the crypts and ruins to find out what treasures await.
Should you want to be purely evil, play as a necromancer, create enormous armies of the undead ready to strike at your whim. This game offers you the experience you want in a game, an experience you can control and change instantly based on how you want to play.
If you wish, you may even live the life of the everyday hard working commoner.
There is no class system in RoM. Instead there are skill trees such as Archery, Dual Wield, Light Armor, Frost or Demonology. This system fully allows the player to tailor their skills to their particular needs.
Do you want to be a heavy armored battlemage who uses a huge two-handed axe when enemies get too close? Maybe you want to play as a sneaky rogue using psychic magic to control his opponents? Or would you like to create an unarmed and unarmoured monk who utilizes martial arts and mobility to overcome challenges? Realms of Magic provides you with a wide range of tools in terms of gameplay and character customisation.
With about 30 skill trees there are thousands of possible character combinations, but that’s not all. Every tree contains dozens of different perks, adding another layer of customisation to your character.
Building and managing your own city is one of the core features of our game. You can create your own settlement from a variety of resources, or simply take over an existing one and claim it as your own.
Tired of chopping down trees or mining for ores? No problem! Just simply recruit some miners and woodcutters and they will do it for you, whilst you continue on with your adventures; however, they won’t work for free, in exchange for their service you need to provide them with food or pay them. Over time you can build a self-sufficient settlement and employ more advanced NPC’s, such as enchanters and alchemists.
However, players beware. The richer and more prosperous you town is, the more tempting of a target it is for enemies. So, ready yourself, hire some guards, build fortifications and prepare for enemy invasions.
We are Polished Games, an independent video game company from Poland, founded in April 2014. We started full-time development on Realms of Magic in September 2014.
Our vision and mission is to create immersive and polished games offering hundreds of hours of gameplay while also being very consumer friendly - that means being involved with the community and not releasing money grabbing content like small DLCs and microtransactions.
We are a passionate team with many years of experience in our fields of expertise. Moreover our whole team consists of hardcore video game players. We spend most of our free time playing games and very often we play together.
Risks and challenges
There are many risks and challenges when developing video games. We have faced many of them before, we have dealt with them accordingly and we expect to face many more of them in future.
One of the major challenges we have already overcome was finding the right people for this project and we've done an excellent job. We couldn't possibly have dreamt of assembling a more talented, motivated and hardworking team.
The biggest risk and challenge (which many other games failed at) is to release the game on the announced date. However, we are very confident that we can deliver our game by the end of 2016 in a fully complete and polished version. We have been working as team with schedules and deadlines for over a year and we have become pretty good at estimating time.
There are also other risks such as an alien invasion or zombie apocalypse. However, we are fully prepared for them and they can't stop us from finishing our game.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
