Bring Magic To Life With Incantor, A Real World MMO Game

Incantor video game for smartphones.

Wand + Smartphone = EpicFunTime

So you’re probably confused by the title.  That’s okay.  I am too.

Bring magic to life?  How?  By using a physical wand that you use to cast virtual spells.

A real world Mass-Multiplayer Online Game?  Isn’t that an oxymoron?  Well, yes and no.  MMO because it’s played in the online community via your smartphone.  But real world because you physically walk around and interact with other Incantors.  By waving your wand and casting spells.  At each other.  Like in a duel.  Holy shit.

My Harry Potter senses are tingling…

“Tell me more!  Tell me more!” you say.  Well read on, I say…

Incantor is a Kickstarter project that seems to have a lot of promise.  Cool concept, awesome wands, and plenty of wizarding fun to be had.  The only thing that worries me is they are asking for $100,000.  They are currently at about $7,000 at the time of this writing.  So… they have 22 days to raise ninety-three thousand dollars.  Yikes.

So what’s so special about this game that people should shell out early money for?

Pledge $10 or more and you get early access to the game.  Pick your username before it gets taken, that sorta thing.  The more money you donate, of course the more benefits you get.  If you pony up $100, you get your own wand.  Oh my god I want a wand.  I don’t think it comes from Ollivander’s though.  $3,500 gets you free wand upgrades for life.  $5,000 and you can create your own spell… $7,500 and that spell is yours, and yours alone.  And if you really want your own unique Incantor experience, $10,000 will get you your own custom wand.

I am in no way affiliated with Incantor, but this video game just seems damn cool and it deserves support.

Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.  Get more information on the game on the official Incantor Kickstarter Page.

Can’t wait that long for the magic?  Well the season finale of The Idle Quest goes live today.  Make sure to check it out!
