A Closer Look at Mind Over Magic

The premise of Mind Over Magic is built on empowering players to shape, design, and manage their perfect magic school. From the minutiae of structural aspects to defining the curriculum, and even to setting up supernatural defenses, players will have full autonomy to shape their institution.

The game extends beyond basic management, enthralling players with the chance to dive into a world filled with lost arcana. It is here that they will have the opportunity to cultivate exotic plants, concoct potions, and even raise undead servants as part of their magical exploration. All of these elements come together to prepare the students of the magic school to utilize and control their magic effectively.

Moreover, players are tasked with an additional responsibility. They must manage daily life within the school, guiding and safeguarding a group of young and volatile wizards. This adds a layer of complexity to the game, ensuring that players are kept engaged throughout their journey.

Once the students are ready to graduate, the game doesn’t end there. Graduates are sent to combat menacing creatures and seek mystical artifacts hidden within the dungeon below the school. This element adds an extra layer of thrill to the game, extending the gameplay beyond the confines of the school itself.
