About the Game (Destiny of a Wizard)
Destiny of a Wizard (DoaW) is my very first RPG game project created with RPG MAKER VX ACE. After over a year of hard work and design, the game is finally finished. DoaW is a linear turn based RPG composed over five chapters. You'll journey through various areas such as a fire infested volcano, the pits and despair of the coal mines, to an ominous dangerous tower. Experience old school fast pace combat similar to old school retro style games. Watch the story unfold through text and voice overs for over six different characters!
I invite you to journey into the Islands of the Vale, as the lone hero, as you struggle to become a true Blue Wizard!
Destiny of a Wizard 2: Beyond the Vale (DoaW2) is the second RPG Maker VX Ace project I've developed. This project took nearly 3 1/2 years in the making combines all the potential I've discovered with RPG Maker thus far. Including various new scripts, graphics, tile sets, and events. With over eleven chapters to discover and a new battle engine incorporated, the game takes place after the events of the first one. The Blue Wizard leaves the promise to his/her late father and decides to go out in search of adventure. New friends, foes, and lands await the player. This is the first game I've developed that includes all kinds of new features such as: sailing on boat, mini game challenges, a merc party system (something that I which I did not see much in many RM games) that has over 10 possible characters to recruit from, more detailed voice overs (with over 2 1/2 hours of recorded content), and much more!
I invite you continue the journey of the Blue Wizard to see what shall be foretold!
After three years of developing, Destiny of a Wizard 2: Beyond the Vale is now available. The saga continues as the young Blue Wizard journey's into a brand new land known as Lulisa. New foes, challenges, and features await in the second installment.
While maybe not new in the RPG Maker world, many of the features I've added in the sequel was a new undertaking challenge for me. Such challenges as a grand total of 13 different playable characters (Blue Wizard, the Standard ten to pick from, as well as the two hidden job classes to discover!), several mini games to undertake such as chase scenes, simon says, and many others, to sailing on a world map at grander scale.
Based on various testings, DoaW2 can take you over 40 hours to complete! For RPG Maker based games, that's higher than the average game! Voice overs also take a huge undertaking as there are over 2 1/2 hours of recorded content with 8 new voice actors in the game. Many thanks to David Camperman, who was the Narrator of the game (as well as one additional character). There are many more features to discover in DoaW2.

8/28: I've updated the flowchart of how I will developing Destiny of a Wizard 2. Head to the development page to see it as well as the current progress. Note: most updates such as screenshots will be posted on the Facebook page. If this page hasn't been updated in quite awhile, check there next! I'm still developing the game and it's been a crazy summer for me so I haven't had a chance to develop much of the game over the summer. Our city is seasonal like town, and working 80 hours a week does put a setback into the project. I plan putting a promotional video (WITH voice narration by David Camperman) of the introduction to the game (sometime durning Mid-Late Oct). Please note that this IS spoiler alert if you have YET to play the first game of the series. It's been over a year since I began DoaW 2 project and I'm taking my careful time with it this time around. While DoaW wasn't techincally rushed, it was my first game project and a lot of features I wanted in the first one were not implemented (such as new graphics and scripts I obtained later but decided to hold back since the game was near completion).
8/28: I've added the possible voice over cast in the developmental section of the site. Head over there for DoaW 2 to see the list!

Destiny of a Wizard is no longer available at Aveyond but the demo version to full version was not pulled. The official demo version is on THIS SITE ONLY which allows you to play up to chapter two. Amanda over at Aveyond is no longer accepting 3rd party games. The full version that was also the timed demo version was associated with Aveyond ONLY. I apologize if this has caused any issues for current purchases. Thanks!
