The gimmick behind this game is the ability to combine various elements (earth, fire, water, air etc) to create a seemingly unlimited variety of spells. Sometimes these spells work as planned; other times, they can have drastic yet humorous consequences
Such as being the only survivor after a fight and then trying to resurrect your friends while you're wet.

Multiplayer is still buggy, but it's still a darn fun game despite the bugs. My personal favorite spell is chaos + steam (water+fire) + steam + lightning + lightning. Makes just a wonderful beam of death that wets foes while shocking them.

@ rodney_ws

An additude like that will only hurt a company like this. Especially when you have a game like this. One that's so casual feeling, even if its deeper than some rts games.

This was a major snafu on their part to not have some toggle in game to turn down the shader model so lower end systems could play this game.

Because when I think "humorous", I think "nigh-genocidal jungle warfare", amirite? I can't wait for the followups, "Magicka: Fallujah" and "Magicka: Auschwitz"!

My neighbors may have heard me laughing at the end of this video.
Been meaning to buy BFBC2: Vietnam, maybe I need to buy Magicka: Vietnam at the same time.
Combo deal for the two expansions maybe?

Magicka is a good game. Haven't played multi player though. My 6 year old has completed the solo adventure 2 times and casts all kinds of wacky spells.

Awesome awesome game, I'm currently making my way through the single player and really enjoy it at every level. Those guys did an outstanding job! Congrats for making such a great game with such a small team.
