Ö, The Mystic Link is a dreamlike single-player action-adventure video game,  with an AI controlled four-legged friend. It was a school project made in 4 months.

In a flat world made of archipelagos, Voy, a musician traveller, discovers within the island Tae a great blue and gluttonous creature named Rua who, like her, carries strange marks. In this forbidden land, a mysterious presence does not accept their intrusion. Will Voy and Rua manage to trust each other to face this hostile environment? Immersed in a magical and mysterious world, the player discovers a fantastic creature, grow attached to it and join forces with it in their journey. Gifted with a superior intelligence to an ordinary animal, Rua has its own personality and will evolve according to the player's actions to adapt to their gameplay.

Ö, The Mystic Link intend to amaze the player, to make them thirsty for discovery and to challenge their patience with an endearing but mischievous companion.

Gave the game a quick look, and the art and sound are amazing! The gameplay mechanics do a good job a facilitating exploration, but I felt like the AI companion to an AI companion at times. The combat was probably the weakest point for me, as whether or not I was doing something correctly or not wasn't communicated very well and I had no idea if I was making progress on the boss.

Hi, thank you for your feedback. The game is still in developpement, so for now the combat is really hard, we still need some improvements for balancing. During the combat on the right top corner, there is an image that indicates the weak spot to defeat the Boss.

We wanted to give more personality to the AI companion but we couldn't because it was a 4-month project. Feel free to share any suggestions, I will release an update soon.
