Mages of Mystralia triple fireball spell

Mages of Mystralia is a charming action-adventure where you have to design your very own spells in order to fight enemies, solve environmental puzzles, and explore over "a dozen distinct regions". After being successfully Kickstarted back in April it has now arrived for both PC and consoles, and from what I can see on Steam it appears to feature some very solid reviews.

So if you're interested in weaving your own incantations and you're up for a lighthearted adventure, here's the recently posted launch trailer to hopefully give you an idea of what Mages of Mystralia is all about. Have a look:

What might come as a bit of a surprise is that the story in Mages of Mystralia is written by Ed Greenwood, the original creator of the Forgotten Realms setting used in Dungeons and Dragons. I haven't played Mages of Mystralia myself, but with an author like that chances are high it has a world well worth exploring!

If you would like to learn more, or just check out how exactly the spell system works, you'll find what you seek on the official website. If you need some actual gameplay examples of how the magic system functions, there's a three-part tutorial on spellcrafting over at the official Youtube channel. And finally, here's a couple of images to send you off:
