Life is Magic is a magical world where your favorite coffee shop turns into a potion vendor and dungeons hold fantastic treasure.
Your character can be a mage (fire and ice), monk (water, wood and healing), or machinist (science and electricity). Each has different powers with strengths and weaknesses against different types of enemies. You get new spells and abilities by finding them in dungeons, buying them in shops, and trading with other people. You can also upgrade the abilities you already have to make them even stronger.
Life is Magic divides the United States into seven regions; which one you belong to is based on where you are in the real world. You can instantly travel to many cities and towns and find new quests, dungeons, stores, and more. The game cities are modeled after real cities, and if there’s a clothing store in the real city, chances are that’s in the game city and it also sells clothes.
You aren’t alone in your travels; everyone can belong to a Magic Circle that consists of you and two other people. You work together to explore tougher dungeons, build your Magic Tower, and increase your individual and group influence. Fortunately, you can control the other members of your Magic Circle if the players aren’t there. That means you can take them into a dungeon and get experience and items for them and they can do the same for you.
Your Magic Tower is the hub for your Magic Circle and a symbol of your strength and influence in the region and the world. As you increase in power and influence, your tower will also grow. You use the Magic Tower to check statistics, message players, chat, store gold, leave behind items for others, and much more.
Life is Magic will be available for iOS and Android in October. It will be a free download with an optional cash shop.
