So I’ve never been a League of Legends gamer. I’ve heard great things about the game from people whose opinions that I trust, and I heard that it’s a high quality experience. All that said, it just wasn’t the type of game that appeals to me as a single player focused gamer. I did watch the League of Legends show, Arcane and was blown away by it, but that is the extent of my fandom with the IP. So my expectations leading up to my interview and demo about the new League of Legends spinoff was that this I would see a high quality game that most likely wouldn’t be for me. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
What I wasn’t aware of going into a PaxEast meeting about the project was that the developers of the game were Digital Sun, the geniuses behind the game, Moonlighter. Here is a little fact about me…I adore Moonlighter. Moonlighter feature pixel graphics are detailed and stunning, the gameplay is rewarding and addicting, and it has an infectious charm to it.
Then they said some magically words that made this game go from one that I knew that I would never touch to one that skyrocketed up my list of anticipated games. They said that this game is a single player action RPG. To say that I was intrigued would have been an understatement.
Then I played the game and time flew by. What was probably a 30 minutes felt like five. The MageSeeker felt like a 2D God of War, mixed with Hades and of course Moonlighter. The action was fast and fluid. The environments were different, but still had that detailed pixel art style that I loved in their previous game. I experience a nice slew of different enemies, and special moves that felt well thought out and designed. As I walked away, I found myself deep in thought reflecting about myself. I’m now looking forward to both the next season of Arcane and now The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story. It seems as though I might be becoming a League of Legends fan.
