About

We heard you like games, so we made a game about a game! Terrain of Magical Expertise is a non-linear, story-driven RPG adventure, featuring an original turn-based combat system enhanced with various quicktime events. Your character is a player of a fictional MMORPG which rose to prominence during a (obviously just as fictional) global pandemic, which caused almost everybody to stay home and play games. The game is inspired by a popular animated webseries (but not to worry, you will enjoy playing it even if you have never watched it!) and features a full cast of voice actors, including talents from some of your favorite video games, YouTube channels, anime and cartoons, as well as charming animations and a huge world to explore, “TOME” packs 40+ hours of pure fun.
It's the year 2020, and a popular new MMORPG called "TOME" is hosting a special event with a huge cash prize. You take the role of a White-Hat Hacker, gifted a copy of TOME by a mysterious friend, who asks for a favor to try and take down some sinister Black-Hat Hackers, that are cheating to win the "Campaign of Champions" competition! Joining forces by chance with a guild of determined players called "The Dandy Alliance", you embark on a turn-based role-playing adventure to help your newfound friends achieve victory!
Customize your player-character with a variety of magical techniques, all executed via specialized quicktime-events!
A fully-voiced adventure, featuring 50 actors from some of your favorite video games, anime and cartoons!
Utilize hacker abilities to turn the tide against your cheating enemies...or cheat yourself, manipulating the game's rules!!
6 party member characters, each with unique skills that can combine together into "Team Attacks" that will devastate your foes!
25 stages to explore, with over 200 unique enemies to battle against in turn-based combat!
Branching narrative paths based on your decisions...as well as your victories and losses, resulting in multiple endings!
Inspired by a hit animated webseries “TOME: Terrain of Magical Expertise”

Terrain of Magical Expertise reviews and comments

Don't waste your precious time on this, if you're curious about it go watch some videos instead. I liked the game in the beginning, then started to force myself to finish it (even it all those nasty bugs) because of the sunken cost fallacy until it soft-locked after a mandatory battle, making it impossible to beat. After that, I just gave up. Here are some noteworthy points:

The Brawler class is absolutely useless. It uses a combo system for melee attacks that's hard as hell to execute properly, and even if you do it only gives 1 damage. It's only useful to replenish MP and even so, items do it better.
All battles have a timer on them, so if need to do something else (like go to the bathroom) sucks to be you.
Battles only give money (Netti), and in such a low amount that's better for you to skip them all and use the casino instead. By the way, the casino only accepts bets in increments of 10 so if you want to, say, bet 3000 bucks, be ready to waste your fingers.
No way to change your dojo skills. You thought some skill was useful in training but found out it is trash on real battles? Pray that's useful against some of the unbalanced bosses, or you'll be stuck forever on them.
Whoever had the idea to make the mansion level deserves to be shot. Unskippable battles against hard enemies that chase you and have a buggy detection system that forces you to beat them 20 times when they teleport? And all for a cube that should unlock a secret boss, but don't because its appearance is also bugged? Oh yeah, this is the life!
The story is pretty good, but sometimes it takes itself too seriously forcing drama only to make the plot seem mature and complex.
