Borealys Games // Press Kit

Company Description :

Borealys Games is a new studio based in Montreal, composed of industry veterans and passionate young developers, some of which have worked at Ubisoft, Gameloft, Artifice, Ludia and Ankama. It was in early summer 2014 that two entrepreneurs and old friends decided to join forces to realise their dream: to set up their own video game company. Since then, with the financial support of the Canada Media Fund and with their hard earned experience in the video game industry, the studio is working on developing its first original game. It is with the help of a small team of 19 hard workers that they aim to deliver in 2017, an innovative game that you will have never seen before.

Mages of Mystralia :

Accompany Zia as she strikes off to train and learn to control her magical abilities that had her exiled. Journey across the lands to meet other exiled mages and uncover runes with magical properties that can be combined into millions of different possibilities, letting you come up with completely new and incredible spells!

The story is being written by bestselling author Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms fantasy world for Dungeons and Dragons.

Mages of Mystralia Comic :

We decided to share the entire backstory and give people a chance to immerse themselves in that world. We worked with two of our favorite webcomic creators to bring this to life: Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo, 8-Bit Theater) is the writer, and Carey Pietsch (Lumberjanes, Adventure Time) is the artist. You can start here and check every Tuesday and Thursday for updates.
