Launch your foes and topple structures from the realistic explosive impacts of your arcane might, without being crippled by low energy, resting to relearn spells, or a frail constitution.


    Avenge your slaughtered order by journeying across a procedurally-generated world destroyed by the same magic that you possess.


    Grow in power as you find ancient artifacts, destructive spells, and devastating abilities hidden throughout the world.

Fictorum 0.9.4 Beta

Fictorum Spellblade

Greg is back at it with this patch’s vlog. Check out the latest changes in action!

Major Change: New Spellblade Ability

An intrepid Fictorum can encounter the powerful Spellblade ability, enabling the wizard to overpower enemies at close range.
