Roguelands Kickstarter launched

Hey everyone, you know that super secret project I've been working on alongside Magicite? Well it is finally on Kickstarter!

I'll be updating Magicite along with working on this new game, and I hope you consider supporting it!

Roguelands will feature over 10 times the amount of content and will have some pretty mind blowing lore which explains a lot about Magicite, the Overworld, and the origin of the Scourge.

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 game had lots of potential. I really wanted to like it, but it just needs polish. My biggest issue is no controller support. I bought the game over a year ago because the Dev's claimed controller support was comming soon. Guess what, its still not here.

My other issue is the dev's apparent attitude, I dont post often, but I do search forums, and have read other reviews. When doing so I noticed something concerning, most topics with critism were quickly cut short, for example with the controller issue I mentioned, there would be posts telling people to stop talking about it, it was 'in the works, but as I said, this was almost a year ago.

Also the game is repetitive and just doesnt play like its fully developed. Inventory lacking, item explainations are poor, and promised feature as still absent. Normally I am pretty patient with a small dev, but based on the dev's behaviour, lackluster performance, and bad attitude I would just avoid this.

An amazing game, with great art and action, playing multiplayer or singleplayer are both a blast. 100% recommend this to anyone who likes rogue likes or platformers. Or even if you like Terraria. Join the fun, and thank you to the creator of the game. This game is amazing, and I didnt expect it to be made by one guy.

Recommendation: Multiplayer glitches and be a buzzkill

Sadly, this is a "don't buy" if you're looking mainly for a co-op game to play with a friend. I really love Magicite, but it seems like 1 in 3 games lately have been ended prematurely by bugs that cause one player to lag out and drop the game or even fall through the level endlessly. Moreover, the melee play-style is frustrating and severely underpowered compared to ranged and magic, so there are only two viable skill paths to take instead of three. These issues could be fixed with updates, but haven't been in spite of a long standing and unanimous request from the community.

The game teaches you to kill innocent civilians to get money and take over lands to find better loot.

good game, BUT

dumb moderators, before i buyed the game i asked in the discussions if its worth it to buy full price, and i got banned for BEGGING, (what?) and now, thanks to those dumbass moderators, i cannot ask anyone to play with me in the discussions cuz i was banned from the forum FOREVER.

i also used to play the pirate version A LOT, and i loved it, i still wanted to buy it because i wanted to support the dev/s,

also, the dev/s is developing a new game now, Roguelands, and he abandoned this game, so no more updates.

another dev/devs who just takes the money after a couple of updates for a new project? i think so...



i cannot recommend this game anymore, i just cant
