Near-Mage is a narrative-heavy adventure game with a bit of role-playing DNA that aims to appeal to hardcore players of the genre and newcomers alike.

Check out the trailer here.

Check out the official website here.

Quote
Study spell crafting in the Transylvanian Institute for Magick as a mage-in-training - a Near-Mage;

Experience a deep and engaging story that plays like an adventure game;

Craft your own spell inventory, use it with different results in every play-through;

Dozens of unique characters in and around the Institute for Magick - your spells change their lives for better or worse;

Vampyres, pricolitch, moroi, strigoi, ghouls, shtima, and more mythical Romanian creatures to interact with;

Over 80 lushly rendered environments hand-painted in glorious 4K resolution;

Traditionally animated frame-by-frame;

Darkly colorful atmosphere bolstered by meticulous on-location research of myths and folklore;

Rich cinematic orchestral score

Dozens of itemized outfits and hairstyles to customize your main character;

Switch from pointing and clicking with your mouse to direct control via gamepad on the fly;

A game about Transylvania made by Transylvanians!

Is this a sequel to Gibbous?
YES! ...And no. Sort of! 😁

Think of Near-Mage as an expansion of the Kittehverse (we’re only half-kidding when we call it that). While it has a different protagonist and a brand new set of characters, it is set in the same universe as Gibbous, after the events of the first game. It will also tie up narrative threads that were left hanging when Gibbous ended, and see fan-favorite characters return.

We are writing the game in such a manner that you can enjoy it without having played Gibbous, but are probably getting a bit more out of it if you have.

We’re very invested in the world Gibbous and Near-Mage take place in - we hope you are, too! - and we want to keep expanding it by telling more stories within it, hopefully with you guys by our side.


Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana

The Kickstarter campaign is going and is already about 50% funded. I'm not supporting this time like I did for Gibbous although I will most probably buy the game at some time. It seems much more RPG than Adventure to me. Point and Click but open world sounds like motion sickness and the only inventory is spells. frown

This actually sounds interesting and worth taking a look at (for me at least). It sounds like you would solve puzzles by figuring out what spells/spell combinations to use. If done properly, that could be fun. Not sure about the open world part, though, and what the implications of that might be.

Wow. This is exciting! Loved Gibbous. But.....does it mean you cannot play if you don't own a gamepad? Hope not. That could be a deal breaker for me. If it's playable with just a mouse, let's hope the stars align soon!

Point and Click or Gamepad according to the quote in Ana's announcement:

"Switch from pointing and clicking with your mouse to direct control via gamepad on the fly;"
