That will torch you with a large amount of friendly fire in multiplayer.  Bear witness to the many regal aspects of gameplay in Magicka. Save the world from doom as a co-op effort of four or single handedly using a fully dynamic spell system. Prepare to defeat the evil wizard as you wreak havoc and devastation on the minions of darkness. Experience a world of grand fantasy like never before!
