Being a student of mystical arts is hard work, doubly so if you are Belle MacFae - a freshman student at Hagmore School of Magic. The teachers and the staff are mean, her friends are few, and her grades suck. Worst of all – Belle has a tendency to be at exactly the wrong place at exactly the wrongest time. Like tonight, for example, when she stayed up late to practice her fire magic, but instead got framed for upsetting an ancient ritual. And what better way is there to punish an unlucky first-year student, than to charge her with an impossible task on the worst night of the year? Re-create the Walpurgisnacht Brew, or be expelled, and with all manner of spooks taking over the school, expulsion is starting to sound better by the minute.

Inspired by games like Slightly Magic, Puff in Dragonland, and the Dizzy series, Mystik Belle is a hybrid of a classic point-and-click adventure and a modern metroidvania. 

While playing it you can expect to do some of the following:

  • Get hopelessly lost in the massive school building and its surrounding areas.
  • Find items and solve inventory puzzles. Or just clog up your pockets with useless junk.
  • Interact with other inhabitants of Hagmore. Learn clues, help them out, ruin their day with angry flies.
  • Fight through hallways infested by over 60 unique monster types.
  • Defeat 8 bosses.
  • Learn new magical and not-so-magical abilities.
  • Ogle at retina-burningly colorful pixel art.
  • Punch Cthulhu in the face.

Be warned though - Mystik Belle is NOT just a metroidvania - it's a true adventure game. You will not get far without having to solve inventory puzzles or talking to people. 

Please be advised that purchasing the game on itch.io grants you a DRM-Free copy and a Steam code.

Lastly, by default, the game contains some language not suitable for younger kids. A much more kid-friendly E-10 version of the dialogue is included, and can be selected from the options menu.

Hey, this game is great! It's like the best Amiga version of the best amstrad/spectrum games, but better! Thank you!


Thank you! Exactly what I was going for:)

Making as sequel BTW!

Nice! Well colour me excited :D

Please release the Linux version soon.

Upped the newest Linux build RC5A49 - the one with all the new item-use animations and new parallax effects.

That is great!


Just wondering if you'll be uploading the Linux version here as well. Already own the game from the Kickstarter but I'd also like to buy it again here so I can play it via the Itch app.


Due to changes to both, GameMaker and Oracle VM software, I can no longer reliably test my games under Linux. I am in process of setting up a real linux box, but it's proving a lot more difficult and time-consuming than I expected. I can, ofcourse, just upload an older Linux build here, but that's not something I like doing.


That's fair, yeah. I can wait.

Thanks for making Linux versions of your games! Really appreciate it.

If you need someone willing to test for you for the time being, I run linux pretty much exclusively.

(1 edit)

Have you tried QEMU (http://wiki.qemu.org/Links)? I think it's much better than VirtualBox on Linux, but I don't have any experience with the unofficial Windows version.


Upped the newest Linux build!

Sweet! I'll purchase from here sometime next month.

Again, thanks for supporting Linux!
