There’s something about Magicka’s sense of humour that makes the series instantly likeable. The first game and all of its DLC was daft and fun and refused to take itself seriously. It helped that it was a cracking good game, as well. Judging from the Magicka 2 [official site] launch trailer, the sequel looks to follow the same vein. Only 96 seconds long and I definitely caught myself mid-chuckle at least twice. Bodes well.
Launch trailers are so often accompanied by a game. Magicka 2 is now available on Steam. The sequel features much prettier graphics and a grander adventure which may or may not include giant enemy crabs. Come on guys, it’s been almost ten years. What next, a Leeroy Jenkins reference?
Adam has been playing the game and will be letting you know wot he thinks of Magicka 2 in the near future.
