Earthlock: Festival of Magic is an upcoming indie RPG in development for PC, Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game has been in development since 2011, and is being worked on by Snowcastle Games. Unity will be showcasing the game at their stand at GDC this year, where the game’s alpha build will be featured.


Earthlock: Festival of Magic is a game set on a planet that mysteriously stopped spinning years ago, and where a war is now brewing. You play as Amon, a “demon scavenger,” and are attempting to prevent an ancient cult from seizing power.


The game uses a turn-based battle system and includes a crafting & harvesting system. It also has a demo available for download, which you can find on its Kickstarter page.


Back in December 2013, Snowcastle launched a Kickstarter campaign for Earthlock, but due to unfortunate timing—right around the time when new consoles were launching and the holiday season was in full swing—they pulled their campaign with the intent to come back at a later date.


The campaign is now live once again, and can be accessed at the link above. Snowcastle hope to acquire $150,000 in funding and have Earthlock: Festival of Magic out on PC and Mac during the first half of 2015. The Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One versions will follow “as soon as possible” after that.
