Initial release Jul 20, 2023
Journey into the world of Magic and Machines with six unique party members on a quest to uncover the mystery behind a decaying world. Discover new areas, find the legendary items, solve puzzles to unlock secret buffs, and master the turn-based battle system with its Overload mechanic. It's perfect for players who grew up with turn-based RPGs and are looking for a new adventure, and also accessible for new players as it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Inspired by games such as Chrono Trigger, Golden Sun, and Octopath Traveler, the game is a nod to those influences of the past and present. The game simplifies many RPG elements such as progression or equipment setups. There’s enough mechanics so players will strategize but not enough that they’ll need to reference a wiki to optimize. It’s also quite easy to pick up and put down and is perfect in short bursts or a longer sit down.

"I wanted to create a game that would appeal to fans of nostalgic turn-based RPGs that may have busy lives, but also could be picked up by someone who's new to the genre.”

Story
In a small quiet town a little accident leads to a dramatic chain of events. Years later, monsters run rampant, the world is slowly eroding, and the Sacred Stones are disappearing one by one. Initially, two childhood friends journey out of their small town to find a missing colony, but they uncover an even larger crisis as they cross paths with a colorful cast of characters. Form your party of three from six characters, explore and discover secrets, uncover hidden bosses and their legendary items, and use strategy to defeat your foes.

Combat
Turn-based battle system with an Overload mechanic. This mechanic lets you supercharge a move after you've used it twice. It can make attacks stronger, effects last a turn longer, and heals surpass your max health. Sometimes you may want to save it and sometimes you may want to use it right away.

Explore
Some characters can alter the terrain of the world with their elemental abilities. Use their powers to find new areas and solve puzzles. You never know what you'll find!

Party
Blaer - Fire adept that's good all around.
Zmrzlina - Ice mage with strong magic.
Alda - Water mage with the best heals.
Toka - Earth adept that bolsters defenses.
Mphepo - Air adept that's the fastest.
Dian - Plasma mage that's an offensive powerhouse.

What’s happening

Listing this out to my waiting list so I can remember to try it out!
Based on watching its preview, I think this game can be played in different ways sometimes you need to solve puzzles, do some battles etc. I also saw that it has great animations, especially when the characters are using their skills. And the graphics are clear, unlike other games that also have this kind of graphics that's blurry. I think it's worth trying when released.

An RPG game that is quite nostalgic in terms of graphics and story.
The story is like some other JRPG games set in magic and later on high civilization encounters. The graphics are quite nice you will have a nostalgic feel to them. You can also play the demo on steam it is available there also. UI in mobile is simple enough and easy to access. You have to explore every area for different chests or rewards. I would like to recommend the game if you like this kind of genre.

Magic and Machines is a turn-based RPG, soon on mobile and PC
Magic and Machines, a turn-based strategy game, has just been unveiled by independent creator Little Bear Studios for the PC and mobile platforms. It transports players into a fantasy world from the 1950s where they create teams of six characters to fight off foes and solve puzzles in an effort to uncover the secret of their dying world. While taking cues from well-known games like Chrono Trigger, Golden Sun, and Octopath Traveler, Magic and Machines makes sure that both longtime fans of the genre and newcomers will experience equal levels of nostalgia for the genre. Although strategizing is obviously important, players won't always need a guide because advancement and equipment setups have been made simpler.
