It’s a great week for aspiring mages. Yesterday I advised you concerning the upcoming Wizard of Legend, and right this moment I’m drawing your pupils to the brand new sorcery-sim from the Trine devs, Nine Parchments, which truly got here out yesterday. You play as a pupil who should depart wizard faculty to chase after some stolen spells, and it appears to be like virtually as fairly as Trine did – which is smart, as a result of it takes place in the identical world. You can see for your self within the trailer under.
It appears to be like A LOT like Magicka, proper right down to the way in which you’ll be able to mix beams from a number of gamers to make them extra highly effective. But you already know what? ‘Magicka by way of Trine’ is okay by me. The devs will nonetheless let you know that’s not what they’re doing, thoughts. When we posted about it final 12 months, Alice dug this quote out:
“Magicka is a fair comparison, but we’re not aiming to make a clone,” Frozenbyte have stated in a YouTube remark. “This is our take on wizard ’em up magical co-op mayhem. One could say we’re going rogue with this.”
That final bit is a Funny Allusion to roguelike parts that seem to haven’t made it into the ultimate recreation – or no less than if they’ve, there’s no point out of them within the press launch or steam web page. What actually units it other than Magicka is that it’s extra like a conventional RPG, with XP factors which you could spend money on new expertise. Nevertheless, there’s nonetheless an emphasis on chaotic pleasant fireplace and fuss-free reviving, in each native and on-line co-op.
