Put On My Robe & Wizard Hat: Magicka Demo

Magicka unlocks on Steam in 9 hours. What are you going to do until then? Ooh, you could eat a fruit. Read a book. Take care that patch of black mold in the bathroom that's started to take on human form. Or you could download and play the Magicka demo, which has just this second been released on Steam. If this news doesn't excite you, clearly you missed my preview yesterday covering a tiny handful of the ways you might screw up. There's a new trailer, too! A dramatic one! It's after the jump!

Alright, so by dramatic I mean that it's less funny than the others. Still, there's plenty of footage of the game's bang, crackle and pop spellcasting system. Take a look.
