Update: Added link for Steam release.
Visual novel developer Dharker Studios, formerly known as AJTilley, has released their newest title Highschool Romance: Magi Trials.
The title is a sequel/spin-off to the game Highschool Romance, which came out last year under AJTilley, before the developer changed to their current name, Dharker Studios. Despite both sharing the main title Highschool Romance, Magi Trials appears to be an entirely separate game and storyline with no apparent ties to its predecessor other than focusing on romantic relationships blossoming in a high school.
While Highschool Romance took place in your average, ordinary school with a cross-dressing male protagonist, Magi Trials centers around a male protagonist who has just entered a school for magic. Hoping to up his chances for success in his new school, the protagonist casts a spell to enhance his innate magical ability. Unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on how you look at it — this spell has an unexpected side effect that turns the protagonist into a female.
It’s worth mentioning that at this time, Highschool Romance: Magi Trials will not contain any nudity, even in its Nutaku release. The game appears to be rife with plenty of fanservice to make up for it, however.
For your reading pleasure, below you will find a trailer, synopsis, and sample CGs from the game:
Arriving at a new school can be daunting, even more so when it’s a school of magic…
Fortunately you have found something that might increase your chances of successful entrance, a ritual that should greatly enhance your innate magical ability.
