June 11, 2013 Los Angeles, CA – Aksys Games announces Magus (pronounced “may-jus”), an action RPG co-developed with Black Tower using Unreal Engine 3. Immerse yourself in the world of Magus to discover who Magus is, and why he’s been imprisoned.
In a world of fire and water, an unfathomable power waits. Magus has been imprisoned in a tower in the Waterfall Kingdom and tortured for years. His crime is unknown; his history is a mystery. He remains locked up, powerless, until a new prisoner named Kinna arrives and she aids him in his escape. So begins their journey to discover Magus’s true abilities—chroma magic, his innate talent to absorb power from the colors green, red, and purple in the surrounding environment to unleash deadly attacks. Along the way they must face the wrath of the Waterfall Kingdom and battle them to uncover Magus’s ultimate purpose. Why has this mysterious woman decided to help him? And why now, after all this time?
An Epic Quest for Power – Travel to dangerous lands and battle the forces that prevent you from become the god you were meant to be.
Unleash Blistering Attacks – The world possesses red, green, and purple magic. Absorb these colors to unleash powerful magical attacks. Everything from devastating tornados to shapeshifting—Magus’s abilities are sure to please any fantasy fan.
Evolve and Become Unstoppable – Choose between throwing fireballs or manipulating gravity—or both! Hone in on one type of magic to become the master of it or learn them all, and let no one stand in your way.
