Download and try the Demo (Pre-Alpha)
We have over 1000 backers and over a 1000 shares on facebook! This is insane! We are so stoked about this that as a celebration we are giving you the alpha demo of Festival of Magic to try it out for yourself! Thank you all so much for all your fantastic support and encouraging words. Because of you, we have doubled our effort and will keep fighting as long as it takes to make this game happen. In the meantime enjoy the demo and make sure to let us know what you think.
What can I expect of this early Demo?
This demo is a very early peak into the game and does not represent how the final game will be. It demonstrates our goal for visuals, the initial farming, the basic combat, featuring pairs and some puzzle mechanics. Animations and Particle effects are among the most obvious placeholders. All of which will be vastly improved up on!
For controls and some other info please read the README file.
The game is best played with a PS3 or Xbox360 controller.
Keep in mind that we have not actually done any testing yet on Linux, so we can not guarantee it will work yet.
If you would like to tell us what you think of the alpha, please go to our forum. You can also go to our Facebook page if you prefer.
What about the Alpha Tier?
For you that has backed for our Alpha tier and wonder why the Demo has been released free for everyone; do not worry! The alpha tier comes with more than just this Demo release. There will be many more updates to the alpha and a lot more alpha testing to come that will not be available to the public. You will be listed in the Credit as alpha tester. You will have Alpha forum access (including Alpha tester badge) where you can submit bugs and request features and have a direct dialogue with the dev team.
This game is an awesome little (but big) side-scroller sci-fi where you play as an alien plant trying to escape a science facility. It has so much charm and personality with its pixelated graphics we know you are just going to love it! It is based on action and stealth and the developers has been inspired by games such as Metal Gear and Oddworld.
Finally we would like to bring to your attention the exciting Space RPG project The Mandate here on Kickstarter. A vastly rich space exploration game with a lot of depth and cool space combat mechanics.
It's a game that we have been backing our selves and the great news is that they have passed their funding goal! They have a lot of great rewards, but there is only 2 more days until their campaign is over. Check it out here
