RAVENWOOD ACADEMY: A WIZARD101 STORY


null

KingsIsle is making a new game based on the Wizard101 story and coming to Steam!

Step into the role of an outcast student wizard attending Ravenwood Academy and prepare to discover the truth behind the school’s bizarre events. Create connections, investigate mysteries, and drop in for a spell in this storybook-style life sim where your choices matter.

As a transfer student from Dragonspyre, fitting in at Ravenwood Academy sure hasn’t been easy. Staying on top of your classes and homework would be hard enough without everything else going on. There’s been some strange happenings around campus lately and you can’t help but feel that trouble is brewing around you...

Add to your wishlist on Steam!

Featured: The Spiral Project and TheNastBlast recreate Wizard101 in Minecraft!

The Spiral Project:



"Telos has been a project we’ve thought about for awhile now. The start of the story of The Nothing. For Telos we wanted to go all-out so you’ll notice details and features that are complex in nature for both Wizard101 and Minecraft. We hope you like it as we work to Rebuild The Spiral!" - The Spiral Project Team

TheNastBlast:
