A downloadable game for Windows

This game is a platformer/action rpg.

The story is about a young mage that is tasked with stopping newly awakened magic users, who's powers have gone out of control. All while trying to balance her own past and issues. I'd like to keep the story simple for this first game, while I find my footing developing these.

This first game will focus on her task to take down one of these mages. The goal is to have at least 2 enemy types, 1 dungeon, and 1 boss fight. Currently only the start of the two enemies are implemented, I still need to make the dungeon and boss fight.

This is my first project, and is still very early in development. I hope you will enjoy what I have done and look forward to future updates.

Amazing game dev had so much fun playing it :) i hope you enjoy my gameplay 

Thank you so much for the kind words! I’m glad you had fun, until the point where it’s unfinished. Sorry I didn’t indicate that in the game.


I'm really exciting for the next updates :)
