There’s quite a bit brewing in the MadPea labs so let me give you a few important dates:
October 12th – Early Access to Spellbound’s starting location – Willowshire for MadPea Premium Members. Bad Omens quest available for prize and achievement. Not a MadPea Premium Member yet? Go here to join and select your membership!
October 19th – Portal to Willowshire opens to general public. Bad Omens quest available for prize and achievement.
October 20th – MadPea Halloween Monster Hunt begins. Runs through to November 3rd.
Fall (TBD) – Spellbound experience finally opens!
A bit of a teaser of what sort of magical experience you’ll expect from the weeks leading up to Spellbound’s full release. Ready your wands and wardrobe, you will undoubtedly be in for an enchanting adventure.
Some theories about Spellbound? Why not! I love trying to guess what MadPea has planned for us. Earlier this month, MadPea teased the Spellbound crest on their Flickr. It seems like players will be sorted into four different houses: Venti, Terra, Aqua or Ignis. Each of these are symbols for different elements: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire. On the crest are the words “magicae et sapientia”, meaning magic and wisdom. Surely it will require smarts to get through the challenges in the game, but is there something more to this motto?
And then! Earlier than that tease was another teaser, but in video form on MadPea’s Facebook page. We got to see what seems like a dining hall(?) with a big massive bonfire(?) in the middle of this castle-like building. That firepit will definitely be something important since it is centered and quite massive. It definitely won’t be used as a human sacrifice pit (or will it?!), so maybe it is House Ignis’ specific dining hall since all the flag banners hanging on the wall were red and the room seemed to be engulfed in fire.
I am a huge Harry Potter fan so I am super excited about this upcoming magic-inspired game. I can’t wait! I hope I am sorted into Aqua 😀
