Since player can destroy the environment around them too. Wielding powerful magic but also face hoards of monsters. All currently in development using Unreal Engine 4.

Wild Mage – Phantom Twilight Trailer (Linux, Windows):

Developer Luna Orion on Wild Mage

“We are pushing to be in Alpha pre-release by Dec 19th of this year [2018]. And beta by 2019 with or without funding. The overall plan is to release a smaller scope then build off that. I don’t like to over promise and under deliver and as a gamer, I hate playing empty games.

Recently it seemed no one was making the games I wanted to play. I grew tired of waiting around years for a disappointing release. I feel innovation is dead in the RPG genre. And I want to breath new life into it.”

Also the Alpha and Beta will support Linux as well. Lucas McCann of Luna Orion also points out, “Linux is easy to support so anything I do will be supported.”

Since gameplay houses everything from first-person action. Flying and air ship all the way up to crafting. It’s somewhat like a GTA V but RPG gaming. Along with features of say ARK: Survival EvolvedCheck out the video, what would you compare it too?
