About this game

Disclaimer: The game is only available in English.

Magium is a DnD inspired text adventure game similar to old Choose your own story books (CYOA), in which you play as an ordinary guy named Barry, who joins a deadly mage tournament against the most powerful mages in the world in the hopes of using the prize to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a mage himself.

As in all interactive novels, your choices will affect the story, and making wrong choices can even lead to your death. Besides the traditional choice making of regular Choose your own path games, Magium also has stats that you can upgrade with points that you will receive occasionally, throughout the game. These stats will be checked by the game from time to time, to see if they are high enough to allow you to perform certain actions. For example, if your ancient languages stat is high enough, you can understand what animals and monsters are saying.

The story of Magium starts at the beginning of the tournament, right after you and all the other participants were transported to the continent where the contest was taking place, and it is set in a medieval fantasy setting, with a dash of futuristic looking magical devices, which are relics of an ancient, technologically advanced civilization that crumbled hundreds of years before the beginning of the series. The world in which the story takes place is somewhat inspired from Dungeons and Dragons, so if you've played DnD before, you will likely find some similarities, especially regarding the magic system.

As the story progresses, you will meet with other participants, you will make friends and enemies, and you will find out more about the continent you are on, and its inhabitants. You will find out that a person called "The Creator" had established several utopias in this place, six hundred years ago, where animals and humans lived in harmony, and food was created through magic. What you will get to see, however, is the downfall of these utopias, some of them being on the brink of destruction. Your choices will influence what happens in these cities, and you can even choose to save them if you so desire.

The game will be divided into six or seven books, each of them consisting of more than a hundred thousand words.

The first book is now available in its entirety, and it can be played for free. It is approximately 178k words long, which translates to about 700 book pages. This number also takes into account the story's branching paths. The length of a playthrough on average should be about 90k words, so about 350 book pages.

The second book is now available in its entirety, but the next books have not been written yet, and they will be published chapter by chapter, as I write them. Unlike the first book, the second one will need to be unlocked before it can be played, and it will be the same for the next books as well. In order to unlock the second book, you will either need to complete 25 of the 35 available achievements, or pay to unlock it. All of the next books will also be unlockable in the same way.

The second book is 277k words in total, on all paths, which translates to about 1100 book pages. On one path, you should be seeing around half of those words, so roughly 140k, which would translate to 550 book pages or so.

One of the most captivating text based cyoa I've played. I started playing this game a few years ago, toward the beginning of book 1. Off and on I'd catch up, trying to get the achievements. I just did a Average Joe run, and it's just as fun as playing it through in many other ways. The story is ongoing, with new chapters every couple months.

One of the best stories I've read in a long time. The fact that there are RPG elements gives it a more personal feel. I feel real invested in this book! In fact is one of the small handful of apps I've actually spent real money on, only after my 4th new phone that I put it on just so I can jump books without replaying for achievements to unlock.

Magium is an excellent interactive novel, with characters and world mechanics that are very well elaborated upon. Updates are fairly rare, which is a bit frustrating when you finish a chapter, but given the quality I don't think it's due to laziness at all. I do wish there was a save system so you could more easily explore different paths without having to redo extensive sections.

You can save and load your game whenever you want from the main menu.

What's new

This update fixes a few typos and font issues.

Also, in case you missed the previous update, chapter 10 of book 3 is currently available. If you can't access the latest chapter, try updating the game manually from Google Play.

If you can't access chapter 10 of book 3 and are not seeing an update button on Google Play, try remembering if you were using another Google user when you first downloaded the Magium game, and then log on to that old user on the Google Play app.
