The charismatic Magician is a traveller entertainer who is happy with his life. This tea lover with an atractive personality seems to be the most succesful person of all times, but a travel to a city through an old forest will make him see the true face of himself.
The art is a vital part of the attractiveness of the game. Combining ink strokes with watercolor to mark the style in a place, timeless as the old fairy tales. This puts the adventure of The Magician in a world where everything is possible, where magic creates a place with no sense at all, and all the sense at the same time.
