Media Context will work with its partners, Starlight Visual and Story Sight Studios, to develop a visual novel adaptation of The Archmage Legacy, a fantasy-adventure audiodrama.
This project will be a part of our Young Artists' Initiative, a series of workshops that train budding show-runners to create their original projects. We've recently released new screenshots for our project, which are included in this updated post.
We'll be working with a team of talented artists, writers and programmers to translate our audiodrama episodes into an interactive game. We have also prepared gifts for those who support this project, such as a free guidebook with concept art from the game.

About the story
A young magician is revived a century after his death, when the enemy he defeated threatens to return.
Legends tell of a Great War between the Mystics and the Necromancers – two separate guilds of powerful magicians.
At the war’s gruelling climax, a renegade Necromancer sacrificed himself to stop the conflict. His weakened life force was contained within an enchanted crystal, which has been protected in hopes of his return.
When the Necromancer awakens a century after the war, the kingdoms discover that he is not the seasoned hero that the legends have described. Instead, he is just a teenage boy.
Although the Great War has ended, the young spellcaster learns that his fight is far from over. The Mystics view him as a pawn in their game for power, and the Necromancers' recovering forces plan to use him for their return.
Starring Patrick Seymour as Zahid, Sebastian Todd as the Magister, Lizzy Hoffe as Older Arielle, Daphne Nitsuga as Min and Brandon Wardle as Corrin.
