Hands-On: Ruins Magus Isn’t The Game I Thought It Was – It’s Better
I’ve had a tough time deciphering what exactly Ruins Magus is over the past few months.
Initial trailers from 2021 suggested this gorgeous adventure might be a text-heavy visual novel experience akin to Tokyo Chronos. Then, at the Upload VR Showcase in December last year, we saw the first signs of combat, and wondered if the game might feature a kind of Japanese RPG battle system. Now that I’ve played it, I can actually tell you what Ruins Magus is: it’s a VR dungeon crawler. And a very good one at that.
