Magicka #1 on Steam, Bug Hunt Continues

Paradox Interactive announces that Magicka has sold over 30,000 copies since its release yesterday, saying this makes Arrowhead Studios' action/adventure the number one bestselling game on Steam over that period. They also reaffirm their commitment that began with yesterday's patch to clear up bugs and other issues, saying: "However, the fantastic success of Magicka is not a signal for the development team to pop open the jars of mead and relax after celebrating. Arrowhead Studios is working around the sundial and is fully committed to ongoing support by zapping glitches and communicating with players. The dev team has plenty more to conjure up so be on the lookout for more announcements and keep those wands ready, wizards!"

It's a fun little game but the multiplayer is extremely broken. Crashes, freezing, desyncs, the whole nine yards. The multiplayer interface is something out of the 90's as well, doesn't even have passworded games. Hell you can't even scroll the game list, you just see 15 games. Thankfully you can just invite people via the Steam Friends functionality but there is no point as most games only take a minute or two to totally bug out.

Anyway when its fixed up it will be a fantastic co-op game. The singleplayer is alright but the MP is really the reason to buy it.
