About Ovo Magica, Those Magical Eggs
Ova Magica is an ode to some of your favorite games, from Stardew Valley and Slime Rancher, to timeless classics like Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, Pokémon, Grandia, Jade Cocoon and Azure Dreams.
In Ova Magica, you have to manage a farm on the outskirts of a quaint little village called Clover Town. Filled with colorful manga-styled NPCs, you have to engage with them through conversations, gifts and, of course, blob battles. As your relationship with the locals (some of whom you may choose to settle down with!) and town grows, the secrets of Clover Town begin to unlock before you. And by secrets, we mean hidden temples, dungeons and portals to exotic dimensions! These new worlds contain strange items and priceless artifacts that hold the key to the city’s – and your – future.
say what Blob Battles?
Yes, you read that right. Blob battles! Blobs live in the wild. You must undertake dangerous adventures into lost temples and ancient dungeons in search of Blob eggs.
Blobs share a connection to their environments, so it stands to reason that you might find fire-themed Blobs in desert dungeons, while those deep in the jungle will be populated by appropriately jungly Blobs. Their native habitats differ thanks to the miracle of procedural generation, in the spirit of the classic PS1 RPG Azure Dreams.
After hatching, you raise and train your speck to become a reliable sidekick and companion. Battles are a lot of fun and very challenging, but your Blob can do a lot more than fight. Each possesses special abilities that you can use to farm your farm. For example, using explosives to clear rock piles or water features that help aquatic plants using their… well… you know.
Unlike Pokemon, blobs can become stronger and inherit each other’s abilities and traits by crossbreeding with any other blob species! Once the eggs hatch, put some bunnies together in one of the dedicated love traps, give them some space, and wallah!, their blobby love blossoms into new crossbred species.
Let’s Talk About Shamrock City
The picturesque countryside around Clover Town offers plenty to do. Cut down trees, chase butterflies with a net, grow/harvest crops and more. Then sell your goods at the city farmer’s market to earn the funds you need to build your home or expand the city. However, Ova Magica is as much about adventure as it is about city building! As you work on your farm, you’ll also find special ingredients that unlock portals to the dungeons and temples of the world.
There is much to explore in these dungeons and wild lands. Find rival blob trainers and bosses ready to challenge you and your blobs in the Active Time Battle system. Be prepared! Or, just sit back and enjoy a cup of tea with other adventurers also traversing these strange new worlds. With the treasures you bring back, you can build advanced farming tools and special facilities for the town.
Town expansion is important because it unlocks additional activities, new quest lines, and attracts other NPCs to populate your own Clover Town. Just outside Clover Town, you’ll find even more activities and secrets – from fishing ponds where you can hang out on a day off, and misplaced blueprints for advanced machines like juicers, creamers and ovens. Don’t forget to get the latest news from the blob trainer community at the local Blob League HQ.
