Being a student of mystical arts is hard work, doubly so if you are Belle MacFae - a freshman student at Hagmore School of Magic. The teachers and the staff are mean, her friends are few, and her grades suck. Worst of all – Belle has a tendency to be at exactly the wrong place at exactly the wrongest time. Like tonight, for example, when she stayed up late to practice her fire magic, but instead got framed for upsetting an ancient ritual. And what better way is there to punish an unlucky first-year student, than to charge her with an impossible task on the worst night of the year? Re-create the Walpurgisnacht Brew, or be expelled, and with all manner of spooks taking over the school, expulsion is starting to sound better by the minute.

Inspired by games like Slightly Magic, Puff in Dragonland, and the Dizzy series, Mystik Belle is a hybrid of a classic point-and-click adventure and a modern metroidvania. While playing it you can expect to do some of the following:

  • Get hopelessly lost in the massive school building and its surrounding areas.
  • Find items and solve inventory puzzles. Or just clog up your pockets with useless junk.
  • Interact with other inhabitants of Hagmore. Learn clues, help them out, ruin their day with angry flies.
  • Fight through hallways infested by over 60 unique monster types.
  • Defeat 8 bosses.
  • Learn new magical and not-so-magical abilities.
  • Ogle at retina-burningly colorful pixel art.
  • Punch Cthulhu in the face.

Be warned though - Mystik Belle is NOT just a metroidvania - it's a true adventure game. You will not get far without having to solve inventory puzzles or talking to people.

Lastly, the game may contain some language not suitable for younger kids.

IMPORTANT RELEASE NOTES

Due to middleware problems as of launch the game has the following issues:

  • OSx version of the game doesn't support the Steam features like the overlay, achievements and trading cards. I will look for a way to get this sorted out as soon as I can. You can still get the game's internal achievements which will transfer to your Steam achievements once this is fixed.
  • Linux version of the game appears to only reliably support the Xbox 360 controller. This is a known issue of all GameMaker Studio games. More information regarding it can be found here.
