If you don’t know about Magicka, then you are in for a huge treat. Not
only is there some great content out there for the game, but it’s also a
really great game to play.
If you look at the YouTube channels BlueXephos (more commonly known as the Yogscast) and TotalHalibut (better known as TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit) they did an amazingly funny series on the game, when it was first released. They also brought about the knowledge of "A.R.S.E. mines", which I’ll talk about later. A brief summary (or a TL,DR) would be a fantasy-based RPG game where you play as a mage who gets dropped into a world where he shouldn’t belong...
You can have up to five elements in a spell, and you can:
- Cast it on yourself (useful for healing and shield)
- Cast it in a beam (useful for killing enemies/doing damage)
- Cast it as an area of effect (useful for lots of little monsters, or trolling your friends)
The whole Diablo series (including Diablo 3); Torchlight and Torchlight 2; the Tales Of series; and, if you really want to go Japanese style, the Persona series, most probably Persona 4.
There is one quest in the game, and that quest isn't mandatory, and most people would kill the quest giver on accident.
