Wisps of the Forest is an upcoming 2D Platforming, Action-Adventure, RPG developed by Darklight Studios and Published by Fantendo for the Nintendo NX, Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita, Playstation 4, PC and Visus Sphere. It is the first entry in the series known as Wisps of the Forest.


The gameplay of Wisps of the Forest is somewhat reminiscent of older NES & SNES games featuring 2D Platforming styles which are mixed with some simplistic RPG styles. The player controls the sorceress Mudanca as she travels across the various lands of Magic. Mudanca is capable of performing various platforming techniques, primarily; Jumping, Sprinting, Kick Flips, Wall Jumping & Ledge Grabs. In addition to these abilities, Mudanca has a magical staff that allows her to cast magic in various ways depending on what art of magic is imbued in the crystal. Using the Primary Action Button, and Secondary Action Button, Mudanca can cast a variety of spells to help her navigate through levels.

Throghout these levels, coins, treasure and items can be obtained which can aid Mudanca in her quest. In addition to her primary Art of Magic (which represents her aesthetic appearance and primary Action button), Mudanca can alternate between other arts of magic for her secondary action button. Mudanca can even combine spells together to create more powerful spells and deal new effects.

Mudanca gainst experience through the use of her spells, able to increase their charge rate, attack power and her own mana points for a specific art of magic as it increases as well as learn new spells. As Mudanca learns new spells her spell tree changes accordingly, changing what future spells she can learn based on what she arts of magic she focuses on.


In a realm where Magic dominates all forms of life and where man and beast have not quite conquered each other, there exists many settlements of men, several in particular in which magic thrives and is taught in ways that science is taught on Earth. In one of these towns, known as Aprenda lives a young sorceress known as Mudanca. Mudanca was gifted in the various arts of magic from a young age and along with her brother, Alma learned at the Magic Academy of the town where they were taught the arts of magic for; Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Electricity, Spirit & Light as well as taught to avoid the forbidden art of magic, Darkness.

However in an attempt to teach themselves even greater techniques, Mudanca accidentally tapped into her instinctive knowledge of Dark Magic, using it against her brother, Mudanca lost control and the Dark Magic was rejected by her body, and into her brother's. Her brother seemingly lost forever, caused Mudanca to explore for her brother in hopes of returning him home. However after several years she returned to her home town and although more experienced in the arts of magic she still had, it had caused her to lose hope of finding her brother.

However during her time exploring for her brother, a mysterious castle of stone and fire rose up from the Medo Mountains casting an ominous shadow over the land, as Mudanca was out exploring the castle corrupted the creatures of the land whom swiftly destroyed the Magic Academy that Mudanca and Alma had learnt from. Upon returning, Mudanca having found her town in a state of fear became determined to find the cause of the foreboding castle.


Mudanca has access to a variety of spells that increases as her proficiency with different arts grows. Some spells help her directly in combat while others provide assistance in navigating treacherous levels while others are passive and help Mudanca survive. There are 7 arts of Magic; Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Electric, Spirit & Light each with a variety of spells and combination spells when two arts are combined.

Wisps of the Forest Map Locations

The realms in which Mudanca must progress to reach the Castle of Medo Mountains contain a variety of levels and areas that Mudanca must face before reaching her destination. There are 4 major Towns and 15 locations to explore although not all need to be visited to access the Castle of Medo Mountains with only the Forest of the Wisps, Spirit Lake, Red Wave Canyon & Jungle of the Ancients required. However visiting the additional locations grants Mudanca further experience and optional bosses with special items that can help her in the last two locations; Medo Mountains and The Castle of Darkness.


Across the realms exist 4 towns, these towns are where most people live and although magic is found in almost every person, it is not commonly used in any of the towns outside of their respective academies.

The first town and the one the player starts at is the home town, Aprenda which is located in the South-East of the Realms. Asperda has often raised some of the most powerful Earth and Fire Sorcerers in existence and has a strong connection with the Forest of the Wisps in which many of its students go to complete their training. While the town has diminished in size due to the destruction of the first academy and nearly half of the town, the remaining townsfolk have rebuilt and have a new academy, albeit have lost much of the knowledge they once possessed.

The second town in the realm is the riverside town of Cacar, Cacar is known for its Water Sorcerers who used their ability to shift the river into a shape that highly benefited their town. Cacar has brought life to what was previously part of the Eastern Wasteland and was able to defend itself by flooding the darkness of the first attack, Cacar's head sorcerers commonly practice making and enchanting items to imbue them with greater power.
