Festival of Magic is “a throwback to the classic Japanese RPGs of yore” with a spin of both harvesting and turn-based combat. Players will fight and farm their way to glory while saving the world.

Join young treasure-hunter/desert-scavenger Amon and his reluctant companion Gnart as they unravel ancient mysteries. Travel the world of Umbra with its deadly deserts, ancient ruins, busy cities and lush islands. Chase barnacles!

Festival of Magic is a combination of turn-based combat, farming gameplay, exploration and puzzle-packed quests. Tend and develop a beautiful island farm. Grow and harvest magical spuds, pearls and mushrooms. Grow your own spells and ammo! And get ready for an epic adventure.

The game will be released for PC, Mac and Wii U in 4Q 2014. The Kickstarter campaign will run until December 21, 2013.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
