A rogue-lite spell-slinger, where you create your own spells, the goal is to give player a large array of spell components to create emergent and unique abilities and interactions.
Emergent Magic is a top-down shooter where you try to conquer a procedurally generated dungeon using spells that you create yourself from elemental components. As you explore you will unlock new elements to play with and create your own unique and original spells.
Spell crafting is achieved with elemental particles that interact with each other in defined ways, you can arrange these components in a spell circle to achieve a desired result. These arrangements can then be saved and employed in combat. In addition to the interactions with each other elements also apply status effects that interact with each other.

Tentatively planning for a 2021 release date.
