Carbon Studio is excited to reveal and release The Wizards: Trials of Meliora, a VR game that brings the fun of casting spells with hand gestures to Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR. The game takes full advantage of 3DOF motion controller’s potential and introduces players to the rich fantasy world of The Wizards.
The Wizards: Trials of Meliora invites players to take magic into their hand and test their mettle as defenders of the Realm of Meliora. Based on the award-winning action-adventure spellcaster The Wizards, this game is a completely new adventure set in the same world, adapted for Oculus Go and Gear VR headsets. The game has been kept in secret through the development process to be revealed and released on the same day – July 5th, almost one year after the full release of PC version of The Wizards.
Trials of Meliora features a unique gesture-based magic system and challenging magical battles in three different locations (two more coming soon). Players will face off against a host of malevolent creatures in scenic landscapes and dark dungeons, with four potent spells at their disposal to fight them. Players can challenge themselves in objective-driven games or test their endurance against endless hordes of enemies.
– Highly detailed graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4
– Intuitive gesture-based system of spellcasting crafted for a motion controller
– Four elemental spells with unique conjuring gestures
– Three fantasy levels, with two more coming soon
– Leveling and spell upgrading system for the ultimate wizardry

“Our goal was to explore how far we can get with the current generation of mobile/standalone VR headsets. We wanted to bring the fun of casting spells with hand gestures to those platforms, and it seems to work very well. Also, we were surprised with how well PC graphics translate to mobile VR in Unreal Engine 4,” stated Pawel Gajda, Biz Dev Manager at Carbon Studio
The Wizards: Trials of Meliora is available on the Oculus Store starting today, July 5th, 2018, priced at $3.99 with an ongoing 10% launch discount. In the following weeks, Carbon Studio will update the game with free content available for all players.
