Face your friends in this chaotic competition which will test all your magical talent. In Wizards Tourney you'll have to prove that you are the most qualified and cunning wizard capable not only to win but also to make your enemies fail.
In Wizards Tourney you will face other wizards in different events where you will have to prove your ability and your cunning, so you’ll not only be worried about overcome the challenge that you will find in each event, but you’ll also hinder and sabotage your opponents’ progress.

Choose your wizard and go to the Coliseum where a magical portal will lead to you to the tourney’s events. Each one is localized on a different place and it set out a different objective, but everyone is funny, dynamic, and chaotic. Every time the game starts, the scene is dissimilar, so you will need to adapt you to it. Each game is different!
Each year, the Wizards Tournament gather distinguished wizards from around the world in High Castle to decide who will get the title of Archmage. However, what started off as a competition based on experience and magical talent, has turned to an elite event where politics and appearance have been imposed at the ancestral end of this tournament.
This year, a small group of wizards has decided to get back to origins, rising against the tournament’s coordinators to give the use of magic her importance. For this reason, they have organized an independent and real tourney, far from severe rules and bureaucracy that reign the Wizards Tournament. In Wizards Tourney, each participant will really have to prove to be the most qualified and cunning wizard, putting into practice all the strategy and trick necessary to achieve the victory.
Wizards Tourney started out as our project to Global Game Jam 2016. We had such a good time that we decided to continue working on this project, and we were surprised because of the good reception of the public. Therefore, we have been working on it hopefully during this period. Although we were two members at the beginning, the Wizards Tourney development team is composed of ten people. We hope you like it and you enjoy playing this game as much as we do.
On the different competitions that make up Wizards Tourney, the placement of the scene elements plays a fundamental role. Designing these mini-games, we discovered that the creation of a large number of variations of these scenes suppose a big effort, so we decided that the best way was creating a procedural generation system that distribute these elements following patterns set out by us. This system sets the initial position of the permanent elements and the positions where it will appear the objects which players will interact with during the game.
In these following images, you can see the result for these two min-games we have just finished: Pot a Potion and Pumpkin King.
We have submitted Wizards Tourney to Steam Greenlight!
