Video Game / Mage Craft
is a technology/magic hybrid top-down shooter, by darthlupi, in which you take the role of a soldier in the hopeless war by the Jang Republic against the Altan Empire. One day, your unit is tested for magical talent and you, being gifted, are whisked to mage school to train in nifty magical ways to kill people. You meet and fall in love with an older student who graduates ahead of you and is sent on a secret mission from which she never returns. Being a gritty male hero is tough because you now must leave school early and unprepared to single-handedly cut a swath of destruction through the Altan Empire and rescue your lady-friend.
