Men, that was awesome, tricky puzzles, funny music, well done !

Excellent game ! Love the mood with the music. The mechanic are pretty simple yet challenging. I loved it. My only nit picking would be with the multiple tutorial text in the beginning, since the barracks destroying goblins were mentioned right away, I was confused and though that the objective was a goblin camps that I needed to destroy. Maybe you could disable the barracks in the beginning and unlock it with a new set of tutorial text in the first level you see a goblin camp, would be a better learning curve imo.

Really good game !

Super fun! Really would love to see it polished off with saves and a proper way to exit the game. A ton of promise here. Amazingly fun!


I liked it. It was a simple but creative puzzle game, done very well.

The mac download does not work. I'm getting:

“Magic Frontier” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Unfortunately this is due to the newer Mac OS code signing requirements. I currently lack the tools to do signing. There is a workaround to this problem if you are familiar with the Terminal: https://osxdaily.com/2019/02/13/fix-app-damaged-cant-be-opened-trash-error-mac/

Regardless, thanks for giving it a try!

Crashes on Windows :(

Hi! It works well on our Windows machines. Please ensure that you have a "data_" folder, ".exe" file and ".pck" file when running. Also please check that your antivirus is not blocking the executable. If you're still having issues please reply with a screenshot/more details about what's happening. 

Does it crash on startup or after playing for a while?


As a lover of RTS games and puzzle games, Magic Frontier is right up my alley! Although the screenshots look like your typical RTS, it’s a deterministic and clever puzzle game. I truly love the concept behind this game.
