Valthirian Arc: Red Covenant is a Magic School Sim on Kickstarter

There aren’t many games these days where you play as the principal of a school. In Valthirian Arc: Red Covenant, you’re the head of a magical academy in the capital city of Valthiria. Although Valthiria is an alliance of five “queendoms”, the academy is a neutral power. Somehow, this puts the school at the front-lines of both the political stage and the war effort when a foreign invasion threatens the land. As this school’s principal, you can end up uniting the five queendoms or just messing with them as you build up facilities and train your students into an army.

Described as Sim City meets Harry Potter, meets Final Fantasy, Valthirian Arc features various buildings for creation to deck out the academy. The idea is to recruit an army of students and send them out on quests with fights in real-time, class-based combat encounters. Due to demand from fans of Valthirian Arc 2, developer Agate Studio has gone to Kickstarter to fund the latest entry in the top-down JRPG-style series.

Watch the Kickstarter video below. The game is currently planned for PC, Mac, and Linux. For more details, and to support, head to the game’s Kickstarter page here.
