An original animated Adventure/RPG from the creators of the acclaimed King's Quest 1, 2, 3[www.agdinteractive.com] and Quest for Glory 2[www.agdinteractive.com] Sierra remakes.

Overview

Mage's Initiation is a 2D Point and Click Adventure Game / RPG hybrid, set in the fantasy medieval land of Iginor. In the tradition of Sierra's classic 'Quest for Glory' series, you may choose to play as one of four character classes (Fire, Earth, Air, or Water Mage), each with unique spells, abilities, quests, and puzzle solutions!

The Story

D'arc is sixteen-years-old. From the age of six, he has studied the magic of the Elements, under the discerning eyes of Iginor's Masters. After a decade confined to the Mages' Tower, and a life of academics and magical mastery, the inquisitive initiate often dreams of exploring the world beyond.

He is about to get that chance.

D'arc is summoned to the Tower's Hallowed Hall, where the Masters set him a trio of challenges: return with the lock of an enchantress's hair, a griffon's egg, and the horn of a rare creature known as a trinicorn.

Join D'arc as he journeys through the medieval-styled realm of Iginor. Brave a redcap 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.

Three quests. One chance.

Succeed and he shall take his place among his fellow Mages.

Fail and nobody shall remember his name.

Thanks! Probably not for some months yet, as we still have to finish beta testing and record all the voices.
