Hell's Spells: Magicka - Wizard Wars Alpha Signups

I killed all of my friends when playing Magicka. Sometimes I even did it on purpose. Fingers dancing across keys to program arcane combinations into a staff, which then unleashes...something. Maybe a flaming boulder that is determined to explode, perhaps a jet of steam that sears the skin off any sorcerers in its path. If Magicka were a fighting game, slipping up slightly mid-combo would cause your character to chew his own leg off or punch himself in the face so hard that both fist and face were reduced to powder. Wizard Wars is a PvP Magicka game. You will be reduced to powder, ashes and fragments. Jim is already a believer and I'm ready to join him. Alpha signups are now open and you can see the game in action below.

Friendly fire is in. As are friendly ice, friendly boulders and friendly death rays. You can sign up here.

The game is under development at Paradox North, which is a new internal studio. They're based in the same building as the Paradox Development Studio but on the next floor up, which is one kind of North.
