Terrain of Magical Expertise is a RPG video game adaptation developed by Neo-C Productions LLC and Chris Niosi, based on his well-known series of the same name. This adaptation bears an alternative timeline seperate from the TOME series and it's TTA incarnation with new designs and a new storyline.

The game consists of the player, who will play a nameless semi-customable White Hat Hacker character, joining alongside the Dandy Alliance to face off against new enemies and learn new techniques. The game is stylised and played similarly to Super Mario RPG, Paper Mario, and Mario & Luigi, where the players are given options and button pressing maneuvers to progress in the game.

A Kickstarter for the adaption was launched on September 29th, 2017 at 12:00 PST for a goal of $75,000. In the span of 48 hours, the campaign reached far beyond its goal, passing the second stretch goal. The campaign ended on November 4, 2017 with a total of $111,162; which is a slight homage to Kirbopher's known "Kirbopher1111" screenname.

Niosi is directing, writing and animating all of the character designs for the project. Niosi, Mike Luckas and Zack Frost are designing characters for the game. Luckas reworked the overall appearance of the Dandy Alliance with some tweaks from Niosi. Michael Scott Prinke is the head game developer and programmer of the project. Yoav Landau and Weston Durant return to the project as composers and sound designers. Blake Swift also returns to do sound design for the game and reprise his role as Alpha.

The game not only features reworks of the designs but also new additional characters and internet guest-spots of well known internet personalities such as The Game Theorists members, as well as Puddin' and Dumplin' created by TeamFourStar from their Dragonball Xenoverse mods and even artificial monsters are shown in the game. Similar to the series, fans of the show also contribute with character designs to serve as background characters or fightable opponents in the game by backing through the Kickstarter. Based on the selective tier, participants are given a survey and an Assignment-of-Rights contract permitting the team to use the likeness of their characters as well as the ability to provide any necessary information or material for the character. Backers who donate to the highest tiers gain direct contact with Niosi in terms of design and their characters will be featured as important opponents in the game.

The game is currently in production, with a free demo available ichi.io, and is set to release in the year 2020; which is the exact date that states the release of TOME in the web series.
