Spellbound is a two-dimensional RPG game inspired by Harry Potter books and films by Hayao Miyazaki's famous Ghibla studio (e.g. Spirited Away: In the Land of the Gods, Hauru's Mobile Castle). In this title there are also numerous elements characteristic for life simulators, such as Stardew Valley whether Harvest Moon. Chucklefish (the publisher of this Stardew Valley) is responsible for the development of this production.

Story

The PC version of Spellbound puts the player in the role of a young student of a magical school. The title does not make the character a great hero and does not focus on a single, epic plot, instead trying to faithfully reproduce the typical ups and downs associated with school life.

Mechanics

Spellbound, a PC-based game, features elements typical of older RPGs and life simulators. We observe the open world from above and direct a single character in it. Exploring the two-dimensional environment, we take part in school classes (e.g. potions brewing and spells learning), perform tasks and enter into various relationships (friendships, romantic relationships) with a wide range of characters. What is important is that each of the characters encountered has its own personality and goals - not necessarily corresponding to our expectations or plans.

The production of Chucklefish studio also offers an extensive combat system, inspired, among others, by older games from the Legend of Zelda series. The player has the ability to cast spells based on several elements. Combining them gives you access to other, previously unknown spells. We use offensive magic mainly in the nearby school, dangerous forest, thus gaining valuable treasures and developing our skills.

Game modes

Spellbound has a single player mode only.

Technical issues

Spellbound is characterized by a two-dimensional, colorful graphic design, referring to classic productions from the 90s.
