The Wizards is a VR-spellcaster set in a fantasy world, where the player becomes a sorcerer and defeats their foes with powerful magic.

The protagonist is a young wizard traveling in time to protect the Realm of Men from the destructive enemy forces. During the adventure, the player visits different lands and faces varying opponents in a high fantasy world. Spell casting in The Wizards is based on the energy of the four elements, and the key to the victory is adapting your tactics to the flow of the battle.

The game is exclusive to VR and uses all the best the technology has to offer. Players can weave spells with their hands using motion controllers, which provides a completely immersive experience in the magical world. With the powerful Unreal Engine 4, the creators want to build a rich and beautiful fantasy world full of stunning visuals.

The Wizards introduces Fate Cards - gameplay modifiers that can change game difficulty and rules to the player's liking. Fate Cards increase replayability and accessibility, which makes the game satisfying for both challenge seekers and casual connoisseurs. In the Campaign mode, the player gains access to increasingly powerful spells that require cunning and skills to master.

Carbon Studio decided to release The Wizards on the Early Access to make sure that all the provided solutions and features are fun to play, add to the immersion and meet players' expectations.

History

The Wizards is the second VR game by Carbon Studio from Gliwice, Poland. The first title, ALICE VR, had its premiere in October 2016 on Steam and GOG.com. The idea behind The Wizards was conceived during VR Funhouse Game Jam, organized by the Epic Games and NVIDIA. During the event, a team from the Carbon Studio created a prototype of a spellcasting game that uses motion controllers. The goal of the game was to defend a land from oncoming hordes of enemies. This basic mechanic, combined with character development and the Fate Cards system, is the core of The Wizards.
