Studio Baikin has announced the release date and a teaser trailer for their forthcoming game – Magibot. Check it all out below.
Magibot is an epic story of a robot with magical powers. The game combines both strategic and 2D platformer gameplay. You have to help the robot to reach his goal from point A to point B, using magical elements.
A little robot wakes up alone in the middle of a forest, wearing a wizard hat and a book placed beside him. Where does he come from? What is his mission? The only clues given to the player are a book written in an unknown language and a map hidden in the cover of the book. The hero starts his journey following the map direction. Throughout the game, the player will pick up bonuses that will help him to decrypt the book and learn new magical skills. During his odyssey, the player will discover a planet covered by a rugged and wild nature: abundant forests, vertiginous snowy peaks, desolate deserts… He will also encounter mysterious masked beings (humanoid and animal forms) that will do everything to capture the robot.
