Words of Power

Magic simulator featuring dynamic spell language, hand-drawn symbol recongition, and interactive destructible world. Draw magic symbols in right shapes and sequence to invoke powerful spells and change the world itself using the Words of Power.

Words of Power is a long-term project exploring the use of symbol recognition technology to create immersive magic systems. All this interesting tech as well as related tools including powerful magic editor is provided as free and open source software available to everyone in hopes of building a thriving open community of people interested in languages, digital magic, and machine learning.

This open foundation will be used by texnoforge to build interesting commercial videogames because we need to fund our existence but at least the core is free and open as it should be.

Even if first Words of Power game happens to suck, all the interesting tech as well as all user generated content (in this case MAGIC) will be available for future projects in TexnoMagic format which is built to last.
