Description

StoryArcana is an open-world wizard school RPG with a large focus on mystery solving, exploration, puzzles and a combat system based around intricate spellcasting. You play as Clay Quilt - an ordinary boy transported to another world and enrolled into a year of wizardry studies as part of an exchange program. On weekdays, focus on learning new magic spells and exploring the academy's ancient secrets. On weekends, visit Noxrose city to meet it's inhabitants, complete quests that will earn you ingredients, wand parts and a fancy new flying broom. As the only wizard from another world, Clay will need to find his place in this mysterious new world, making friends and rivals in school as well as earning the trust of the people of Noxrose City.

History

Development of StoryArcana started in early 2019 with the Construct 3 game engine, with Rory Mitchell as a solo developer. A small team slowly took shape over the year with composer Christoph Jakob joining shortly after. In 2020, we launched a Steam page and are currently aiming for a first demo version of the game.
