Hey everyone! Had to redo quite a bit of code in order to get altars to work correctly with stats. Now when you arrive in towns, there is a 30% chance you'll find an altar for a god. You may pay some gold for a chance at a major buff or perhaps something not so nice :D

Gameplay
Added Altars!
Added God: Ryvenrath
Added God: Maalurk
Added God: Eoqueth
Added God: Pegelda

Bug Fixes
Fixed Fairy movement
Fixed Bat movement

OH and Players hosting a multiplayer game can now enable PVP for you extra hard core fans!

Thanks again for the support, I'll be working on both Magicite & Roguelands all day everyday in the months to come!

About This Game

Explore, craft, and survive in this Multiplayer RPG Platformer with permanent death! Featuring many Rogue-like elements, Magicite randomly generates each underground dungeon for you and your friends to delve deep into. Chop trees, mine ores, and hunt beasts in order to collect the resources and materials you need to survive the harsh and unforgiving environment. With a ton of character traits, stats, companions, and classes, players will have a different experience each play through! Be prepared to die... A LOT.

Magicite's main influences were Monster Hunter and Spelunky. I loved the resource collection and crafting in Monster Hunter, and of course fighting giant monsters with my friends. Spelunky's brutal yet rewarding platforming was also something that I wanted to capture with Magicite.

Features currently implemented:
  • Randomly Generated Dungeons - Experience a new dungeon each time you play. Expect tons of trees to chop, ores to mine, plants to harvest, and bugs to catch! Oh and giant monsters.
  • Permanent Death - The game logs all of your stats in a play through, leading the way for achievements and upgrades.
  • Crafting System - Combine any two items to create a new one! For example, Wood + Wood = Plank. There are tons of combinations to discover!
  • Combat System - If you plan on just running in and swinging you sword, you're gonna get wrecked. Take time to craft useful items and examine enemy positioning before executing a well timed attack.
  • Multiplayer - Want to put your friendships to the test? This is the game to do it! Permanent death only occurs when the ENTIRE party has fallen. So if your buddy gets knocked out feel free to run over and help him back up. Or not...

Upcoming/Planned Features:
  • More Biomes
  • Unlockable Races & Companions
  • Bestiary
  • Achievements
  • Card Collecting
  • More Items and Gear!
  • More Enemies!

Once in a while, you come across a game that has a concept that, while not unique, implements all the qualities and features you'd come to expect from a great multiplayer game.

Positive:

The game is fast, furious, and a hell of a lot of fun. The concepts are simple, and, once you figure them out, you can easily transition between roles with ease. The design is cutesy, simple, and implements the roguelike feel without that hatred of dying a cheap death. Very rarely have I had a feeling that I wasn't in control of my character and died to a cheap trick.

Negative:

The game gives off the feeling of an indie title. While this can be a good feeling, when you've gone through and played several times, you can feel that there is nothing new to offer you, aside from a new playthrough with a different set of hurdles.

Overall:

The game is good, but I will say it is not for everyone. If you like Terraria, Minecraft, and enjoy a good roguelike game, Magicite is a game you'll definitely be happy you paid $10 for.

An amazing and expansive rogue-like game that never gets old. Are you ready for Magicite?

Magicite is a rogue-like (you die once, you die forever) game that is definitely worth the ~$10.00. You probably won't master this game on the first run, but after a while, you'll get the hang of it. Magicite features three different styles of play. Warriors, rangers, and mages roam the lands of Magicite. Warriors use melee weapons to bash hordes of enemies. Rangers flee the close-combat and attack from a distance. Mages use various staves and magical items to attack from every angle. You can also craft in Magicite; experiment with different items until you produce a new item, be sure to keep track of these recipes. Magicite features plenty of races. Some races are easy to unlock, and others are harder but worth the effort. Completing the task needed to unlock a race for a second or third time unlocks a different variant of that race (a different look). Every race has it's own specialty and comes into Magicite with different pros and cons. There are also unlockable hats that give special bonuses. There are also a small list of unlockable companions that help you on your runs. Before your run, you can tweak your stats and abilities slightly by rolling your stats. Online play with up to four players is available too, you just have to find a server. Using outside programs like Hamachi and Evolve, you can make the Magicite experience better, by hosting a private game with your friends.

tl;dr, Magicite is a vast, quick game where you gear up, choose your race, variant, hat, and companion, roll your stats, and play in a world with monsters, crafting, and overall thrills. A ~$10.00 well spent.

At first, you will hate this game, so challenging, so unforgiving. You will play it about a half hour and then say: why the hell did I buy this game? Then, about a week later, you will come back just to see if it really was that bad. You will start playing it, start to discover the game mechanics and the crafting system. Then you will continue playing it and eventually get addicted to it. Then your character will die. And you'll probably rage quit. But you'll come back the next day.

I mean, this game is awesome. For $10, you get a really nice product. You can even play multiplayer (wich I didn't try yet). I just love the way the game drops you inside the first biome and tells you nothing, almost laughing at you, it's kind of funny, but it makes discovering crafting recipes so much rewarding. The game is also very colorful, each biome having it's own main color. The perma-death system could look very frustrating at first (and it really is), but it adds a little bit more challenge to the game, wich pleases me, because it makes the game even more rewarding. The combat system is also really well done, because it takes skills not to get brutally murdered by every single creature you encounter. I can't wait for the next updates to add even more nice stuff to the game!

I would give this game a solid 9/10
If you like platformers, you should definetly buy this game!

I do recommend this game everyone who:
  • likes Roguelikes/ Roguelites
  • likes Pixel Graphics
  • likes 2D Platformers
  • likes RPGs(-elements)
  • likes to die over and over again like in Dark Souls
  • likes to kill poor Chicken and Villagers

This game is hard. I have played 3 1/2 hours so far, and have started about 15 new Characters. My latest character has survived nearly 1 hour and only died, because I didn't pay attention to my HP!

This is the Roguelike I've been searching for, for a long time. It's just as I imagined it to be. This is just like Dark Souls only in 2D and Pixels. Only that you loose all your Stuff and restart from scratch, with a new randomly generated World

I recommend to play the first few hours with friends, because they can revive you and it's generally easier!

In a nutshell:
A charming little 2D side-scrolling platformer with a solid foundation in gameplay for anyone who enjoys the genre. Although you begin your journey with just a generic playable character armed with an axe and a few random items, after harvesting enough wood, stone and precious metal to craft more advanced tools and weaponry to better slay a variety of enemies, you will quickly unlock more playable characters, pets and hats with different traits, and you will be inclined to try the whole journey again. The game is fun and plays well as it is, and the new contents/improvements constantly being added definitely makes it a value-buy in the long run.

Gameplay:
You will move, dash, jump and double-jump to get you across from the entrance on the left to an exit located to the right, stopping briefly to chop down trees for wood, mine some stones/ores and to harvest herbs and mushrooms. You will encounter slimes, boars, skeletons, spiders and many other type of enemies, and you may choose to engage them with well-timed slashes of your item in hand (i.e not necessarily a proper weapon), snipe with your bow and arrow or simply introduce them to one or all three types of elemental magic attacks should you desire. Gain experience to level up for better stats and special skills to aid you in slaying the final boss at the end, but with permanent death, it is likely that it will take you more than a couple of tries with one of many unlockable characters before you succeed. Get friends to play together and it will be even more enjoyable, depending on who survives better.

Aesthetics:
Numerous examples have shown that pixel-art graphics can be part of a successful product, and Magicite have no problems being one such product. The colour palettes used varies according to the biomes, but are generally colourful and goes well with the background tunes of the respective biomes.

Final word:
Highly recommended for the gameplay as a platformer, as well as replay value for the almost constant streams of new contents from the developer.

Most would say that this is a Terraria clone, or something similar. I disagree; it's got pixelated graphics, and you can mine ores. Oh yeah, you can also kill monsters with magic, melee weapons, or bows. The similarities end there.
Magicite is a 2-D side-scrolling platformer/rougelike/permadeath game, and it's incredibly fun. You can spend ages working on your character, only to see him (or her) brutally murdered, never to be seen again. You can get killed by a pirate penguin, over and over and over again until you figure out how to dodge. You can also get the game-breaking ghost pet and jump across the roof of every stage and never take damage. I'd recommend it. 9/10.
Tl;dr It's not a Terraria clone, it has permadeath and is 2D, buy it.

I feel like there should be a whole new game on that sprinting/rolling thing. Get through levels feeling like a true speedrunner doing that.

Great game.
Not so easy in the beginning.
Multiplayer desync gets pretty bad sometimes and needs to be fixed.

An addicting pixel-style game where you battle through numerous dungeons and unique monsters! Unlock many different hats, pets and races all with unique abilities. This game has a nice atmosphere, good music, and challenging difficulty. If you want a good challenge and a fun game to play with your friends then Magicite is a must!

This game is extremely fun, different and exciting every play through. Tons of replay ability and one of the most fun games to play with 3 of your friends. Just be prepared to throw things, because it is very unforgiving.

I will definately reccomend this to others.

This was a well-made, visually pleasing, challenging and fun game. Magicite is a rougue-like with elements such as a procedurally generated dungeon and perma-death. However, and even though it is not the most important part of the game, there is crafting included (cause who doesn't like crafting), and a huge variety of items to obtain. In addition to gameplay that simply makes me happy, there are also many perks like races, hats, and companions that are unlockable.

For a fun game with cute graphics and challenging gameplay, this is DEFINATELY worth 10 bucks.

Reach dungeon in district 11 - Think to myself "The only way I will get through this is if the first 2 chests give me a zweihander and a ryvenrath's scale.", I open the first 2 chests and get exactly that, went up to district 19 with a firebrand and ryvenrath's scale before the damn crater creamed me. Thats the farthest I have gotten in this game so far, and atm I am a major newb at this game. Sadly the game didnt give me the bandicoot, all I got was a crusader variant and the regen fairy.

This game is addicting, I hope one day I will beat the final boss.

Magicite is one of my favorite games. It's surprisingly fun, and addictive! You keep wanting to get farther and farther each time, and it will suck you in for hours on end. It's also suprisingly difficult too, which adds a fun element to the game.
10/10
