Developer CharacterBank has revealed the launch date for its VR fantasy RPG game Ruinsmagus. Starting next week, owners of the Meta Quest 2 and Steam VR headsets will be able to embark on new adventure while wielding magical arts as a novice member of the Ruinsmagus Guild.


In RUINSMAGUS, you’ll take on the role of a novice in the magical arts who’s sent to investigate the abandoned ruins below the prosperous town of Grand Amnis. The town’s wealth depends largely on artifacts hidden deep within the ruins, protected by powerful Guardians. Faced with a daunting challenge, you must answer the question that haunts each and every one of your fellow citizens: What mysteries lurk beneath the gilded streets of Grand Amnis?

As a member of the renowned RUINSMAGUS Guild, your goal is to help strengthen it with magic, resources, and wisdom as you fulfill more than 25 unique, story-driven quests. Face off against guardians tasked with protecting the ruins from intruders – and solve deadly puzzles to advance the story. When you've successfully completed a quest, head to the surface to acquire new items and upgrade your equipment in town – if you want to live another day, that is!

Key features of Ruinsmagus include:
  • Explore and fight: Cast and blink your way through a stunning VR fantasy world.
  • Make your mark: More than 25 story-driven quests to challenge your skills.
  • Feel the power: Unleash 16 types of magic from the palm of your hand.
  • Defend yourself: Raise your shield with your non-casting hand to block enemy attacks.
  • Jack in: Immersive VR mechanics that bring your character to life.
Ruinsmagus will be released on the Meta Quest Store for Quest 2 headsets and Windows PC via Steam VR next Thursday, July 7, for $34.99.

I got a meta quest 2 a couple weeks ago. It took me less than an hour to learn how to play pirated games, download the ones I wanted, install and update them. I knew it would prolly look kinda cool, but im now convinced that VR is here to stay. it is fucking dope playing games that were made to play in VR. Cant wait until there are a lot more games for it.

Definitely going to buy it on SteamVR for maximum forwards compatibility and so I can play it with top-of-the-line graphics on HP Reverb G2 and Wireless Vive Pro 2.

i think i've seen enough isekai to know where this is going. only having 25 quests and 16 spells makes it seem more like a proof of concept, rather than a polished mmo ready for launch, though.

    @KenniesNewName That's the problem with gadgets, there's a new one being leaked, announced, released every week, and if you wait for something better to come along you can wait forever, there's always something new on the horizon.

    Same thing with price too. Miyoo Mini is $50 and it's fine, but RP2 is only $100 and has way more options, but now there's the RP3 and it's just $30 more, but the Ayn Odin Lite is $190 and it's very powerful, but the Ayn Odin Pro is $250 and it's an absolute beast, but now we're already in the Windows handheld range and I really would like a Windows handheld... Ayn Loki starts at $200, but why not add a few bucks for better specs... but now we're close to the Steam Deck and that is a much better choice...

    So we get from $50 to $500 in tiny, reasonable increments.

    My attitude in those cases is to decide what I want in that particular moment, not waiting for emminent releases. And decide based on function, that is, if I will use it almost daily and if it satisfies my desire/need

    I just give up on buying anything and wait until the desire subsides. Works just as well.
