This game is very similar in format to Animal Crossing - shopping for furniture to jazz up your room, collecting insects, fishing, looking for treasure, chatting to your neighbours ...
The presentation of the game is very different. You are an apprentice Magician and you attend a Wizardry school where you learn magical spells which you can cast. You live in a very strange house, in a beautiful area (graphics are wonderful) complete with mushrooms, amazing tree-houses, forests and even a haunted house. It is completely magical to play.
The game is massive and, like Animal Crossing, it is a time-based game so you get variations of daytime and nighttime as well as all the different seasons too with certain bugs/fishes/items only being available on certain days. So unless you cheat, it will take at least a year to be able to collect it all.
Highly addictive and perfect for adults as well as children - lots and lots to do whether you love collecting, designing your wardrobe or your living area, exploring, learning spells and magic or building relationships with other characters or even your own friends if they have a copy of the game too.
This is going to be a massive hit - think Harry Potter meets Animal Crossing. Marvelous.
