Description

Magic is an art for the lost,
only studied beneath the sands of the world,
never to reach the surface.
What was once an academy of learning
now claims the memories and knowledge it once gave away for free,
and shades of people roam its empty halls.

Once upon a time, people from all over the desert world of Talizar came to the Academy to learn the secrets of magic from the mages, and bring magic out into the world.
Once seasons changed. Now they are gone. So are the miracles of the mages.
Now the Academy rests beneath the sands, its halls closed for teaching.
Knowledge of the ancient arts lie deep within, but the library claims as much as it gives away, and only those hopeless souls who have nothing in life but a fickle faith in magic are doomed to wander those dark hallways.

‘Academy’ is a game about memories, mysteries, and magic. Once the Academy was the centre of the world. Now it’s glory is far gone. Where did it go
Will you be the one to find out? Are you ready to play a character in a world where the mechanics change what you remember, and what you don’t? Your name might be gone, but there are still much of you left. For now.

Come, you lost soul.
Join the Academy.
(We are all looking very much forward to never seeing you again)

Magi er en kunst for de fortabte,
kun studeret under verdenens sand,
dets kraft aldrig ment til at nå overfalden.
Hvad engang var et akademi af læring
tager nu de minder og den viden den engang gav væk uden pris,
og skygger af folk hjemsøger dens gange.

Engang for længe siden kom folk fra hele ørkenverdenen Talizar til Akademiet for at lære troldmændenes magiske hemmeligheder, og bringe magi ud i verden.
Engang var der årstider. Nu er de væk. Ligeså er troldmændenes mirakler.
Nu er Akademiet i dvale under sandende, og dens gange er lukket for undervisning.
Megen viden gemmer sig under sandende, men stedet tager så meget som det giver, og kun de håbløse sjæle som intet andet har end et spinkelt håb på at magien venter på dem er dømt til at vandrer de mørke gange.

‘Akademiet’ er et spil om minder, mysterier, og magi. Engang var Akademiet verdens midtpunkt. Nu er dens storhed for længst forsvundet. Hvor blev den af?
Vil du være den der finder ud af det? Er du klar på at spille en karakter i en verden hvor mekanikkerne ændrer på hvad du husker, og hvad du ikke husker? Dit navn er måske væk, men der er stadig meget af dig tilbage. For nu.

Kom, fortabte sjæl.
Kom til Akademiet.
(Vi ser rigtig meget frem til aldrig at se dig igen)
