RUINSMAGUS sets out on a quest to redefine the action RPG genre with a beautiful, anime-inspired fantasy world brought to life through immersive VR mechanics and perfectly-tuned Oculus Touch controls. An engrossing narrative, a heartwarming musical score, and well-known Japanese voice actors add to the game’s depth – making RUINSMAGUS a truly magical experience. The game is scheduled for release in Spring 2022.



*Magic is in the Air*

In RUINSMAGUS, you will take on the role of a novice in the magical arts who is sent to investigate the abandoned ruins below the prosperous town of Grand Amnis. The town’s wealth depends largely on artifacts hidden deep within the ruins. Faced with a daunting challenge and untold terrors below, you must answer the question that haunts each and every one of your fellow citizens: What lurks beneath the gilded streets and corners of Grand Amnis?



As a member of the renowned RUINSMAGUS Guild, your goal is to help strengthen it with magic, resources – and wisdom! – as you fulfill more than 25 unique, story-driven quests assigned to you. Face off against guardians tasked with protecting the ruins from intruders – and solve deadly puzzles to advance the story. When you've successfully completed a quest, head to the surface to acquire new items and upgrade your equipment in town – if you want to live another day, that is!



*Lifelike Oculus Touch Controls*

Effortlessly cast spells, defend with a shield – or use blink (a short-range teleportation move). There are 14 unique types of magic available in RUINSMAGUS in three major categories: Charge Magic, Skill Magic, and Special Deadly Magic. The game also features 9 armor, gauntlet, and shield types – and 13 items (including potions, injections, and grenades).
