Here Comes Trouble: Magicka 2 Adds New Elements

Half the fun in Magicka came from trying to do something helpful but accidentally casting a spell that was very unexpected and deeply unhelpful, thanks to its squillion combo spells. It was quite nice when spells went well too, I suppose. Whatever you're trying to accomplish - there's always one joker determined to kill everyone - in Magicka 2 [official site] you can now add…

Win Or You Die: Magicka 2 Is Out On May 26th

The Bringers of Strategy Gaming Joy at Paradox Entertainment have released a new trailer for Magicka 2 [official site]. It's a very in-right-now parody of the Game of Thrones intro theme that will make you smile with the smug sense of satisfaction that comes from getting a pop culture reference.

On each and every occasion it was an accident and I don't think I was entirely in…

Toy Boat, Toi Boit – Paradox Debuts Leviathan: Warships

You know, for all their Poseidon-defying majesty, there aren't actually that many games about boats. I mean, sure, there are some sims, and World of Warships is on the way at some point, but the most recent high profile bout of virtual Boat-Fu that springs to my mind is, um, Assassin's Creed III. And those parts were super great! The rest? Not so much. But still,…

Walkie Tonky

Indiegames linked us to a lovely little prototype demo from Pieces Interactive. It's a side-scrolling smash 'em up called Walkie Tonky. In it you play an alien robot with telescopic legs, who, having been dropped off on the mothership, is off on a rampage. Kick and flail arms to do damage, or simply extend legs to step your way over trouble. I love the silhouette/shadow-puppet…
