About the Game

The Wizards: Trials of Meliora invites players to take magic into their hands and test their mettle as defenders of the Realm of Meliora. Based on the award-winning action-adventure spellcaster The Wizards, this game is a completely new adventure set in the same world, adapted for Oculus Go and Gear VR headsets. It brings the fun of immersive gesture-based spellcasting to standalone VR, along with the breathtakingly detailed environments known from the original The Wizards.

Trials of Meliora features a unique gesture-based magic system and exciting magical battles in three different locations (two more coming soon). Players will face off against a host of malevolent creatures in scenic landscapes and dark dungeons, with four potent spells at their disposal to fight them. Players can challenge themselves in objective-driven games or test their endurance against endless hordes of enemies. Both of these game modes award skilled wizards with experience, which allows them to unlock the full potential of their magic in a leveling and spell upgrade system.

In the following weeks, Carbon Studio will update the game with new levels. This new content will be available for free to all the players.
