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.

Known Bugs and Future Enhancements

For those interested, we’re making our development progress public. Feel free to check out the upcoming changes to Fictorum and vote on the changes that are most important to you!

Fictorum 0.9.1 Beta

Major Changes

As usual, Greg put together a vlog showing you some of the latest changes to Fictorum:


We’ve been distracted by the terrible look of our trees once destroyed and Chip decided to do something about it. Trees not only look better after being hit by a spell, but they can be used tactically to destroy buildings, enemies, and other trees!

Evil Quests

We’ve decided to start including evil quests into event rotation. Want to purge a town of citizens? Destroy key structures in a village? Have at it! We’ll be adding in more of these types of quests as time goes on.
