Following a strong initial release, Paradox Interactive has given an update on Magicka's sales to Big Download: 200,000 copies sold in its first 17 days. Remarkable for a small-scale launch, even if the game was budget priced. Word travels quickly, I suppose.

Paradox producer Mattias Lilja says the team at Arrowhead Studios is "close" in terms of fixing technical issues, "but not there yet. The basic tech design of Magicka sets some limits to what we can realistically do, but there's still stuff we can and definitely will improve upon."

As for downloadable content, "the release plan includes both free and paid" content, and it's supposedly wild stuff. Lilja also hints that, should Magicka continue to be successful, there's an opportunity for a sequel. You don't say!

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more

Solve your own murder in Why Am I Dead At Sea

You have been murdered, and you are now a ghost. It is up to you to solve the mystery of your own death. No, not like that. No, not like that either. Okay actually, it is sort of like Ghost Trick. It looks like the spirit in...more
