New free magicka DLC - Includes 'crash to desktop' Spell

#1 Edited by Onno10 (405 posts) -

In case you didn't know, the launch of Magicka was pretty dam buggy. Anyway, check out what the people of Arrowhead came up with.
 
Here's the full list of new stuff:
 1 Staff – “Bugged Staff” – summons a swarm of bugs.
1 Sword – “A broken sword”
1 Robe – “Patched Robe”
1 Magick – “Crash to Desktop – Magick –deletes any foe (or friend, yourself)
 
Also, the developers even made a song about the buggy launch, check it out at

I love this game, and the developers. Great sense of humor.

Aww, I thought it made the whole game crash to desktop, that would have been way cooler. 
And a very good way to make people afraid of playing with strangers...

game seems fun, i need to check it out soon. The new stuff to parody their bugs is pretty funny.  Assuming it's fairly fixed now and working. 
I assume it is.

Man, I just got past that part before the new spell was put in place. Took me so many times to get past that bridge by myself.

Isn't that kind of OP?

@MaFoLu: Same! I would have bought the game on the spot if that's what the spell did

Why didn't Obsidian do this with their Fallout New Vegas? That game was, and still is, a buggy mess. I want a fucking-peace-of-shit-gun that will force enemies through the ground!  
 
Anyways, great to see that some developers still have their laughs even after the buggy launch.

Because they have been simply comissioned to do a spinoff by Bethesda on a buggy ass Gamebryo engine. It's not their baby so to speak, so little reason to have feelings for it.
They fixed as many bugs as they could and moved on.

Nope, it has the same chance of deleting yourself or one of your friends as it has for deleting an enemy.
