Digerati have announced that The Magister, a murder-mystery card battler developed by Nerdook, will be released next month in Europe and North America. To be more precise, it will launch on September 2nd!
Here’s the latest trailer for the game, along with some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots:
The latest game from developer Nerdook (Monster Slayers, Vertical Drop Heroes, Reverse Crawl), The Magister puts players in the role of a Magister – agents assigned to enforce the rule of law in the far-flung provinces of the Empire – who is dispatched to the remote village of Silverhurst to investigate a murder.
The Magister is a murder-mystery card-battler RPG. Build and customise your deck to fight in battles, or use ‘Tactical Diplomacy’ to pacify those who stand in your way. Gather clues and discover motives as you investigate the death of your predecessor and unmask the guilty culprit.
- Randomly generated murder-mystery: A walkthrough won’t help here! The events, clues, motives, and murderer change with every playthrough. Only YOU can identify the guilty suspect.
- Tactical card-based encounters: Your combat and negotiation skills are determined by the cards in your deck. Use a vast array of cards, such as ‘Heartstopper’, ‘Poison Slash’, ‘Weak Joke’, and ‘Long Talk’.
- Pacify enemies for a peaceful outcome: Use ‘Tactical Diplomacy’ as an alternative to fighting and calm foes with your conversation cards to reduce their Rage level to 0.
- Choose your Magister: Different Magisters come with their own specialities and flaws. From cunning alcoholic to intelligent insomniac – every variation defines a different adventure.
- Recruit a human ally or furry companion: If needed, a Mercenary, Spy, or Sage can be recruited to assist in your investigation. You can also befriend one of the local cats or dogs to fight by your side in battles.
- Set in a captivating fantasy world: You have 14 days to wander Silverhurst and befriend or intimidate its inhabitants as you race against time to unmask the murderer.
The Magister (Switch – eShop) comes out on September 2nd in Europe and North America.
