“It seemed like a perfect time to focus on finding new accessories.” – The Narrator The students of the Astral Academy are not after only their school’s missing spell parchments, but there are other fascinating things to be found out there in the great wide yonder. Hats There are chests hidden all across the perilous journey, and while some are sadly empty, others contain fashionable pieces of millinery: hats! Each student has their own hat, but they find stranger and more wondrous hats as their quest progresses. Playing on a harder difficulty allows you to find more interesting, rarer hats, […]
“This is Fire, this is Ice This is Death, this is Life This is Lightning, this is Steam And this is all that’s in-between” – The Principles of Magic for Elementary School Levels by Professor Butternut Nine Parchments is all about runaway students from the Astral Academy going after missing magic parchments on their own, so here we take a closer look at what kind of magic we have in question. The spells cast by the students, as well as the spells they find out in the wilderness, fall into seven categories: six kinds of elemental spells; and non-elemental spells, […]

This is a story about the development of Nine Parchments, a multiplayer video game about young wizard students collecting spells and sometimes blowing themselves up accidentally while learning them. For your amusement, this story is illustrated with images and outtakes from across the development period. The Journey Begins In the autumn of 2015, Frozenbyte published the third installment of the Trine series. Trine 3: The Artefacts of Power was an ambitious project, which near broke our hearts as we were forced to release a game with only a partly finished story. As we labored in the smoldering ruins of our […]
Nine Parchments is a very fast-paced game about a group of ragtag truant wizarding students going out into the world to look for some missing spell parchments, and while they encounter terrible foes and breath-taking vistas, any dramatic moments of confronting difficult narrative choices (other than, should I throw a fireball at my friend or not) are less than featured in the game’s short, sweet and few cutscenes. Party Banters To match the game’s lively speed and our intention that you would like to experience the action more than just once, we wrote you some Party Banters. You may have […]
