Magicka is an action/adventure game set in a Norse mythology-oriented fantasy world. You and up to three other players take on the roles of wizards of a sacred order with the ultimate goal of stopping the evil dark sorcerer that has thrown the world into turmoil as his evil creations besiege the forces of good. By combining elements to cast spells you will wreak havoc and devastation among the lackeys of darkness. Team up with your friends and choose your way through the various levels of the campaign, or test your skill with magickal abilities in other challenging game modes.Contribute
Paradox will make a Magicka-related announcement at GDC -13. Though i had my doubts when buying this first one it turned out to be pretty nice, so almost can't wait to hear what's this all about.

// Paradox Interactive has told PC Gamer that it will be announcing something new related to Magicka for the PC during GDC later this month. We’ve been told it’s not a port, and it’s not more DLC (which Magicka already has a huge amount of on Steam.) The stars seem to point to a potential Magicka 2, or perhaps some kind of spin-off in the same universe, with different gameplay.
I got a look at Wizards of the Square Tablet at PDX Con, which was quickly discarded from my mind into the nearest Icelandic memory recycling bin when I heard it wouldn’t be coming out for PC. Since we know it isn’t that, it has to be a brand new title. One of the only other things we know is that there are some ex-DICE guys working on it, but we shouldn’t expect something FPS-ey, despite the Battlefield pedigree.
We’ll be in the GDC trenches to bring you more details from Paradox as soon as we can get our Frost/Fire Tentacles of Journalism on them in just a few weeks. What would you guys like to see out of a potential Magicka 2? //
