Magicka Celebrates One Year Anniversary

Indie game Magicka has reached its one year milestone, with 1.3 million copies sold. I still remember the first time I watched Total Biscuit and the Yogscast play the game repeatedly accidentally kill each other in hilarious ways. Affectionately nicknamed the “mage suicide simulator,” Magicka is one of the most amusing games I’ve seen.

To mark the occasion, the developers have cooked up a new Magick that will be free for all players: the Confuse spell. I have no idea what this spell does, but I’m sure it’ll lead to countless friendly-fire incidents.

What does the future hold for Magicka? An expansion, titled “the Other Side of the Coin.” In this latest addition to the Magicka universe, slated for release later this spring, wizards will trade in their hats and robes for black capes with giant 70’s collars as they take on the role of the “bad guys” by controlling Alucart the vampire and commanding his legion of necromancers.

Why do vampires have the same fashion sense as the Fonz?
