Merlin: The Game Launches Into Open Beta

Embark on a magical adventure with your friends to become the hero of Camelot

London, 25 October: the highly anticipated, Merlin: The Game, is now available to play in open beta. With no big downloads and no install necessary, access to Facebook’s newest and most exciting social game is just a click away. This fun and beautifully crafted game introduces more casual gamers to a real-time, co-operative, role-playing experience, on the world’s most popular social network.


Award winning Bossa Studios plan to change your perception, again, of what a social game can offer: 

  • Merlin allows you and six of your best friends to fight off hordes of monsters, complete quests and explore new exciting areas.  

  • As you battle across Camelot gain experience points, level up and customise your character with the skills you want to use.

  • Progressing through the game allows you to upgrade your equipment from the basic clothing of the medieval age to shimmering suits of armour, or colourful sorcerer’s robes. 

  • Striking and exciting visuals allow you to dive into the world of Merlin and explore the world of Camelot beautifully rendered in a new stylised environment.

  • Be part of the story in the action adventure game that will always have new content for you to explore.



Bossa Studios have had a blast developing Merlin: The Game and here are few highlights from the process:

  • The lyrics for The Knights of the Round Table from Monty Python and the Holy Grail were used as placeholder text during alpha stage.

  • The very first design decision on maximum size of maps was 10×10. Now we have some buildings in the hub bigger than 10×10.
  • During the making of Merlin the team consumed enough pizza to cover a tennis court. 


The name ‘Leo’ (one of our developers) has appeared in the game in 52 different places during development. 8 of which are currently still in the live game.
