Naoyuki Tatsuwa (Gourmet Girl Graffiti) is directing the series at LIDEN FILMS. Nanami Higuchi (BEASTARS) is writing the script. Nozomi Nagatomo (A3! Season Autumn & Winter) is designing the characters. Shūji Katayama (Overlord) is composing the music at Pony Canyon. Akira Hashigami (Gods' Games We Play) is credited for color design. Minami Kasuga (Dragon Ball Super: Broly) is handling background art. Koji Yamakoshi (Pokémon movies) is the director of photography. Mai Hasegawa (Ensemble Stars!) is the editor.

The game is set in a world where wizards and regular people coexist. The player is a "sage" who develops wizards to counter a "great disaster" that befalls the world every year (and forms deep bonds with them).

The company coly, Inc. launched the free-to-play game (with in-app purchases) in November 2019. Bunta Tsushimi (IDOLiSH7) writes the scenarios, and Dangmill (Cross-Dressing Villainess Cecilia Sylvie light novel illustrations) drafted the original character designs.

The game is inspiring a manga adaptation by Shibatarō Nakamura this June.
