Mage's Initiation: Reign of the Elements
February 11, 2014 - Himalaya Studios

At long last, Mage's Initiation has finally seen green and we have everybody who voted yes to thank for it! We're elated to have our game accepted as this has been quite an important goal for us. As a bootstrapped indie company who spent the better part of a decade investing our efforts into non-commercial Sierra remakes, this is going to help us out significantly, so, thanks a million for voting, supporting us, and spreading the word!

Now, as promised, it's contest time! Three voters have been drawn at random from the comments section. And, without further ado, the lucky winners are... *drumroll*...

First Prize: $450+ Swag Everest Prize Pack

Runner Up Winner 1 (Any Steam Game)

Runner Up Winner 2 (Any Steam Game)

Congratulations, guys! We'll be in touch (or otherwise you can contact us).

If you'd like another chance at winning more game prizes, be sure to visit our other Greenlight page for "Al Emmo & the Lost Dutchman's Mine", vote "yes", and leave a comment. Vote for Al Emmo here. The game is not far from 'greenlight' territory, so please do keep those votes coming in.

Thanks again, and we'll see you on Steam once Mage's Initiation releases!

Thanks very much to everyone who has voted for the game -- we're at 99% -- teetering right on the brink of the top 100 list!

But don't stop now. Please spread the word, ask your friends to vote for Mage's Initiation, and help us to push past this barrier.

With the support of the adventure community, we can do it!

PS. Our other game, Al Emmo, is now on the Groupees Retro 2 bundle. Pay what you want, and when Al Emmo gets greenlit, you'll get a Steam key for that, too:

The Mage’s Initiation demo is now available for public download!

Download the Mage's Initiation Demo here![]

This demo gives you just a teaser of what the gameplay will be like, both the adventure/RPG and combat aspects.

Important Note: As of March 2013, this demo is still in an early alpha stage of the game’s development. It is feature-incomplete and there are bound to be some bugs. Please be mindful that the demo does not yet represent the final product.

We are releasing this early alpha to gather feedback and suggestions about the interface and combat system so that we can refine these aspects for the final game.

If you discover any bugs or crashes you can copy and paste the error message with Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. Please post any reports or general feedback on our “Technical & Bugs” forum at

Additionally, we still have two Supreme Archmage slots left! The demo will give potential backers a small taste of what you’ll get if you’d like to be immortalized as D'arc's combat opponent in the training hall. You’ll also get your own lip-synced dialog portrait and have the chance to voice your own speech lines and battle grunts (plus all the awesome swag from the previous physical tiers).
