Mage's Initiation Kickstarter

Tuesday, 19th February, 2013

Hello, Sierra Adventure Game Fans!

We have some exciting news. The team behind AGD Interactive / Himalaya Studios has been working hard on our latest Adventure / RPG game.

Today, we're excited to announce that we have launched a Kickstarter campaign for Mage's Initiation.

Please check it out. Not only can you pledge for a digital game download, but you could become the proud owner of a Collector's Edition box, a resin character figure, or even appear as one of D'arc's battle opponents in-game -- and plenty more!

Since we all know that adventure game fans are the best fans ever, we'd truly appreciate the support of you guys and girls, in helping us reach our funding goal, so that we can bring you exactly what you expect from us: an epic, 2D,  hi-res, original Point & Click adventure game! All in the classic Sierra-style of our King's Quest and Quest for Glory remakes.

What is Mage's Initation?

Mage's Initiation is a Role-Playing / Adventure Game hybrid, very similar in style and execution to Sierra On-Line's classic Quest for Glory series. It has a fantasy setting and features multiple playable character classes, spells, and an open-field magical combat system, complete with equipable items and monster loot drops.

You assume the role of D'arc, a sixteen-year-old Initiate who must complete a trio of tasks set by his Mage Masters. Journey through the medieval-styled realm of Iginor. Brave a goblin-infested forest. Navigate a vast lake to encounter an evil so pure, not even beauty can disguise it. Ascend to the peaks of Flyteria, a valley of winged warriors once dedicated to protection of the human town.

Succeed and D'arc shall take his place among his fellow Mages.

Fail and nobody shall remember his name.
