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:
  • 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.
  • Unlockable Races, Hats, & Companions - The more you play, more greater chance you'll unlock awesome new hats with a variety of special effects. Races and Companions can also be unlocked to provide different starting items and stats!
  • 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...

This is a good game in and of itself for single player which is fun and great and all. it\'s fun to play for those who like a slider style crafting game with many in-game unlockables like characters, companions, and hats (most of which have in game effects). However, since the developers have abandoned the game multiplayer doesn\'t really work. With my bf whoever hosts, their game works fine and they can play easily. but whoever isn\'t hosting ends up being glitched and stuck either in previous levels/towns unable to continue or move. they slowly catch up but still cannot move or continue. So unless the creators come back and overhall the game or redo their system so that it runs off of steam connection rather than a third party (such as hamachi, evolve or other which eats up ram and causes big latency problems described above) the multiplayer only lasts a few levels before you\'ll have major problems with your other players. thus making the multiplayer useless.

Otherwise, Magicite is a fun single player game with many achievement based unlockables of varying difficulties. Naturally most would be easier with a second person to help (such as the no hp potion usage in game). I really like this game and wish the creators would at least come back to FIX the problems such as black screening and multiplayer set to steam connection. people have invested money into this game, which isn\'t really that expensive, and CONTINUE to do so because they like it and want other people to be able to play with them, but soon realize they cannot. its a VERY POSITIVE voted game, when really it should be lower due to the inability of using the multiplayer option that most people aren\'t aware of until after they\'ve purchased the game for themselves, and likely another person.

fun game, would be great if it could be multiplayer.

4/10 rating honestly because most of the game is fun with other people.. and someone who would APPEAR to take pride in their creation abandoning it is honestly disgusting to me, if you publish something like this, don\'t leave it up for people to waste their time on if you aren\'t going to continue to at least keep it running smoothly, you don\'t need to ADD more, just keep it running just as people keep paying for it. you\'re being paid =/

It has very good potential. The maker of rougelands made this game (before rougelands) and this will get you into the general taste of the game type. Its like Terraria but with a unique crafting system, in the side scroller type of game, but there are stages and no building which isnt a bad thing.

I really really really wanted to like this game. But I don't. If you have motion sickness, stay away. The screen is worse than a shaky cam. I can barely do 5 minutes on it without feeling like throwing up. The directions are not clear, and the permanent death honestly just sucks. If you are looking for something like Terraria, don't go with this game.

This game is wonderfull, its best with friends but it's still fun when you are playing it alone. I recomend buying this game if you can get som friends into it too, but I have not found a way to play with youre friends whithout LogMeInHamachi.

Posetives: It's a good spin on Rogue-like games and is verry simple but good and good replay value and lots of things to unlock and the controls are good. (I recomend using keybord and mouse for this game)

Negatives: The game is short and i can beat it in under a hour, the final boss is easy when you have played it a few times and the unlocking system is based on chance.

That was some stuf about Magicite and overall it is a good game with some flaws 7/10

A spectacular game to play, that is if you have friends and a half-hour to spend on trying to get to district 15 at least. This game is definitley worth grabbing for a quick pick-me-up for an online couch sort of game. If you enjoy any fast paced dungeon game you'll definitley enjoy this one.

Caution: I would not recommend this game if you have an issue with glitches, as it is not uncommon to encounter them and this game is not in beta.

This game is in a word, fun.
Alone or with friends, it's simply fun.

That being said, a friend and I found a way to duplicate, and dear god... We went far.
Now, that being said (pardon the redundancy) we still utterly failed.

The game is just really good for if you're only in the mood for "one game"

It's a funny game, but you just get to little content for your money and it won't be updatet anymore.

Furthermore the three classes of the game are heavily imbalanced, whch makes playing warrior useless.

The game's worth about 2€.

This game is lots of fun when it works, and for singleplayer it works perfectly! There's a nice curve in difficulty - players learn how to avoid basic enemy movement patterns and adopts strategies for attack in the first few levels. In later levels enemies perform new patterns that the player must adapt to or suffer greater penalties to health than before. I revel in the challenges the game presents, and the way it rewards skillful movement and planning. Each town is a welcomed rest and keeps the action engaging rather than exhausting.

Multiplayer should be an even greater joy, it's great fun coordinating with a friend and reaping the efficiency of two players dividing duties and actively harvesting resources. however multiplayer has always ended in a mess for me and my friend. I'm unsure if it is due to poor connection because the initial levels work without a hitch. Once we'd reach level 10 and on though everything starts to go to hell. Enemies lag out of place, projectiles spawn unattached to a source, flickering phantoms of beasts would hover in place after death. Occasionally the ground wouldn't load and I'd fall into an inky abyss. It's worse that the multiplayer functions at all because it's only after great progress has been made that everything goes wrong. In one round I even lagged a full level behind. My friend would enter a door, and I'd enter the (unplayable)level he'd just been through.

I understand that with a rogue like game you can't just have a player joining part way through, so allowing a disconnected player to reconnect might not be the best solution. But most games with multiplayer I've played will at least give you an indication that the connection is unstable. It'd be nice if the game recognised a poor connection, and stalled or paused players to try and reconnect/ stabilize. I admit I have no idea what is necessary to actually maintain a multiplayer session, but my experiece so far with it has always ended poorly, and that experience is all I can contribute. If the connection issues could be fixed up I'd happily buy copies just to distribute them to friends and spread the joy, but for now I Guess I'll wait til my friend and I can get a better connection :/

Gotta say I've had this game for a good year and a half or so and just completely forgot about but one day I got bored and decided hey, why not play it? So I went ahead and did and my god I regret not playing it for that long. Very fun game either alone or with friends.

Buy it.

This is a great game to play with friends if you want really quick sessions.

Game's Focus: The game is based around completing various tasks with each go around, such as collecting 10 ore in one life gives you a 20% chance to earn a reward for later use.

Short comings: If you don't have friends to play it with, it can get a bit tiring since some of the tasks you need to beat require either a lot of skill and know-how or some friends to help you out. I found that while it felt great to earn the rewards, the more I played, the harder it seemed to earn them, especially when a friend couldn't play.

For people who read this..

I personally think this is a really good game.
Ofcourse there are a few bugs and glitches here
and there but nog every game is perfect.

I would recommend this to anybody who likes platformers and
likes to play with his friends..

The thing i like about it is that the game is so hard to beat.
and u dont know anything about it because u dont get a turtorial
so u need to figure it all out for yourself.

( One negative point: there are only 3 classes :/ )

This is a really fun game. there are lots of places that you can go to meeting new enemies and creatures that get harder and harder as you progress through the game. The final boss is a really fun fight to do as well ramping up the difficulty as much as possible. there are many different items that you can get as well, the crafting system in the game is very simple once you can understand how to do things. I have been playing this game since beta and i still love playing it. The multiplayer in this game is really fun as well, if you want to play from computers that are not on the same wifi i suggest using hamachi so that you are able to, otherwise you wont be able to play multiplayer just yet. All in all this game is amazing to play and i would really suggest people getting it and playing it.

This game was a lot of fun and had great potential, but seems to be in its final form now and just doesn't have the depth and polish the game deserves. If the developers had worked out bug fixes and added just a few more features (i.e. it would be great to be able to save a run after a level so you're not committed to doing it all in one sitting) after release I would recommend this highly, but in its current state I would only buy it on sale.

Pros:
-fun mix between platformer and roguelike
-reasonable difficulty (neither too easy nor too hard)
-quite nice looking
-the class system is pretty interesting and, despite being simple, adds variety and increases replayability

Cons:
-feels like an early access game despite being finished w.r.t. occasional bugs, content feeling skimpy/unpolished
-no saving mid-run so if you didn't budget enough time to finish up on a run that goes long, you've wasted your time

Worth $10? IMO no. Worth <$5 on steam sale? Absolutely.

An Awesome rogue-like game with a minecraft/terraria feel to it. 10/10 would Scurge again. My only problems with this game is that it could do with some more items and crafting, possibly better chance % ( Finished the game muliple times and still haven't unlocked dwelf or the miner hat :p ) Other than that top notch game.
