Swedish indie studio Arrowhead Games and publisher Paradox have announced January 25th 2011 as the official launch date for online distro of their action RPG Magicka, with a retail-box version set to ship later in EU/US February 15th (we're unsure of Aussie distro prospects at present).
Magicka will transport players into a fantasy environment unlike anything ever experienced before. Save the world of Magicka from doom as a co-op effort in a team of four, or single-handedly using a fully dynamic spell system. Prepare to defeat the evil wizard as you wreak havoc and devastation on the minions of darkness in thirteen action packed levels.
Accompanying this news is a new developer interview video where producer Mattias Lilja walks through the basics with some new gameplay action on offer.

Buy now from Green Man Gaming for only GBP£7.95 (USD$9.99 on Steam)!

Looks fun. I recall their videos for why the game was delayed. Fun little series in itself. Might have to pick this one up if its cheap.

Bloody fun game. I'm only on chapter 2 and keep dying because I f*** up my magic. I go to cast lightning when I'm wet and 1 shot myself, I click the wrong type of cast button (why are there like 3 or 4 types, should be 2 at most) and drop a 5 rank fire/rock boulder on my head, 1 shot.

Awesome thing i've found out though is play around with the shield spell and combine it for some epic results

water + shield = rain, which then lets you annihilate things with lightning
arcane + shield = explosive mines which can have frost/wet/fire added to them for effects
rock + shield = wall of rocks, which you can add arcane and ice too for added effects.

Awesome stuff this game.

There's a ridiculous amount of spell combining, I'm really enjoying it thus far. Recommended for $10.

How the s*** do you make Wind? I cant work it out. Theres a few spells that seem to need it but I can't work it out.

EDIT - Also up to chapter 3 now and it's getting really f*****g hard. Monsters showing up that are immune to fire/lightning which are your 2 hardest hitting spells so it forces you to combine other things.

might give the demo a try tomorrow

I lasted 5mins.
Not saying those that enjoyed it are "wrong". Just not at all what I expected, felt like I was back playing police/kings quest.

This game has turned pretty hard, not knowing much of the combinations owns you.
