Earthlock: Festival of Magic is a story driven adventure RPG featuring classic turn based combat, with some original twists: Players grow and harvest magical ammunition on their own island, and pair up different character classes to unleash devastating attacks.
Earthlock takes the players on a grand journey on a planet that mysteriously stopped spinning ages ago, where war is now brewing. As the desert scavenger Amon, you must unlock the mysteries of Umbra to prevent an ancient magical cult from seizing power.

- After PAX we breezed through the Steam Greenlight process in 14 days
- We launched a kickstarter for Earthlock: Festival of Magic (known then only as Festival of Magic) in December 2013. Due to unfortunate timing with the launch of new consoles, as well as the Holiday Season the campaign was postponed
- Development has continued in the meantime, and we are now back with an even better Kickstarter campaign and a lot better timing!
- Unity has chosen Earthlock as one of their showcase titles at their stand at GDC in San Francisco in March, and we will be there with the latest build of our alpha!
