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...

Starting with positive, I like the controls they feel tight and responsive so far, I like the artstyle, and in general I actually really like the concept of this, Feels more like an arcade version of terreria.

BUT almost instantly, out of principle I have to give it a no just because the crafting is so annoying.

I didn't realize it would be so unintuitive.
clunkily halving ingrediants then crafting 15 sword hilts or whatever because I don't know how to grab just 1 at a time and couldn't even if I wanted to because the inventory is stupidly small.

another game with unnecessary amounts of time researching recipes online as I play.
Sure after a week or so I will probably get most of it down but the thing is
It adds NOTHING to the game, it only takes away from it.

For a game that feels much like an arcadey platformer pop-in-for-a-half-hour-session type of game, I really don't understand what they were thinking with the crafting.

The game is at it's core a a relatively simple action/rpg arcade platformer style level based game.
design the game as such IMO, it seems to have some identity issues going on.

add up resources like you do the gold,
Have some sort of crafting menu that simply shows you what you can craft and what you need.
Simply click if you have the ingrediants.
wow was that so hard? probably would have saved me 3-4 hours of wiki'ing.
and if someone were to argue "well that's the fun, you need to be smart about your space and how to craft stuff"
sorry but if "inventory management" is a major part of this game, the devs did it wrong.

Magicite.
A game that doesn't know what it wants to be.

I love this Magicite. No more needs to be said. Magicite is amazing, not every aspect of it though. I wish this game had a proper tutorial, or something to make the transition into a complicated game far easier. I also want to say, that the scourge wall is totally the Wall of Flesh from Terraria. I want to announce that if you love games like terraria and minecraft, but have started to get bored of them. Than this game is perfect for you. It is survival(y), with a hunger bar, crafting, and everything. It also is a great 2d platformer. I truly enjoy being able to sink into this game for 30+ minutes, and just enjoy myself, and then easily be able to quit when mom says, "Dinnertime!" I hope that you take my info into account, and have a truly phinominal time playing Magicite! Here's a link to my YouTube below. Please subscribe even though I haven't uploaded anything since I already have some vids prepared to go up.

Could never get a server with my friends to work. We tried everything we could find online, and still nothing. My boyfriend and I got about, 3 minutes of any sort of enjoyment out of it before going "yeah, this is basically just a waste of money." Really not worth what you pay for it, even on sale.

Honestly, I just couldn't get a grip of the controls. There are other issues with the game, but the controls were the main factor. If you CAN handle the controls, the game is good. Good music, good indie style graphics, some interesting game mechanics. The game just doesn't really play that well.

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.

That moment when all 3 doors are dungeons
That moment when you kill a spider egg by mistake
That moment when you took to long and the scourge are coming for you
That moment when you die right off the bat
That moment when you beat the final boss
That moment when a giant chicken trys to murder you
That moment when you play coop and have a great time

A little rough around the edges, but quite fun. Especially fun with some extra players.

When Magicite was recommended to me, it was pitched as being like Spelunky with a little crafting peppered in. Obviously, this pitch was made by a friend who knows how much I'd played Spelunky when it was still in beta. It's not far off, though. The game is about tearing through randomly generate levels to progressivly harder sets of stages, collecting treasures and upgrades to help you make it to the end of the game, all with a very small health pool and extremely limited forms of recovery. And, yes, it is fun!
However, Magicite is far from a polished experience. First of all, I think it grasps the wrong end of the roguelike stick entirely. A big part of what makes roguelikes fun is the randomness; you never know if you're going to get a great set of equipment and throw it all away in hubris or struggle to keep alive at the razors edge of your wits because the game dealt you an awful hand for your class of choice. Add crafting immediately cuts down on this immensely; because crafting lets you design the direction your build will go. You know you're going to get a usable setup, at least, because you created it. Other than that, there are bugs-a-plenty, especially in multiplayer, and a lot of what makes you keep trying, the different classes, hats, and companions you get as rewards from different kinds of runs, range from irrelevent to horribly game-breaking. For example, the companion you get from beating the game once spits out random items from time to time, but it seems to choose from every item the game has and with equal weight. We found it would often barf up end-game equipment in the very first level. Amusing, but not exactly well-balanced.

I would recommend this game to people who like challenging games, but find the randomness of true roguelikes frustrating, and have at least one friend to play with (and a decent understanding of Hamachi). It is fun if you can find it in yourself to overlook the roughness in its design.

Good, well made and fun. Setting up a server is VERY confusing and sometimes doesn't work. Crafting system is a bit confusing and early on enemies can kill you very easily. The game is fun but sometimes I can't help getting a bit fustrated.

One thing that annoys me is that Feats only have a chance to unlock a desired item so you may have to do it more then once, apart from that it seems fine.

8/10 multiplayer bugs had me laughing so hard when maps glitched out and trapped me at the start while leaveing my near dead friend to fend for himself on level 16. R.I.P *ieces*

Ok this game is fantastic, really hard but fantastic like 9/10 that one point missed is for one reason one stupid reason...WHYYYYYYYYY CANT YOU GUYS JUST ADD STEAM INTIGRATION!?!?!?!?! it would make playing with friends SOOOOOOOO much easier. I cant even play with my friends because half are saying hamachi is all good others say it destroyed thier pc and it would just make the game that 10/10 no 11/10 that it could be. *sigh* But despite that MAJOR flaw the game is actually VERY VERY VERY good give it a try. :)

I bought Magicite on sale, and left it in my library for a little while. Once I finally got around to it, I jumped in. Honestly, I expected very little from this game, I don't think I paid any more than five dollars for it, and set my expectations accordingly. Needless to say, I got the amount of enjoyment and satisfaction I expected tenfold. Magicite is a game in which you choose a race, a stat-boosting (or ability granting) hat, a set of traits, and stats and are thrown into a dangerous, procedurally generated world full of monsters and resources for you to collect and craft with along the way. Magicite's crafting system is basic, and short, but not disappointing. I recomend figuring out all the crafting recipes yourself without the use of a guide until you're truly out of ideas in order to keep things interesting. Trust me, discovering new crafting recipes by experiment is immensely more satisfying than 'discovering' them on the Internet. My first adventure was short lived, I quickly discovered that Magicite was a pleasantly difficult game to play by oneself. But the difficulty didn't aggregate me, instead it interested me. I was hooked, they had me. I played my evening and night away. Magicite is also great fun co-op. After I learned a lot more crafting recipes, I told a friend about it. He bought it, and we gave it a whirl. Honestly, I think this game was meant to be played in this way. We switched roles between resource collector and offence, and it worked out so well. We would blow past levels and get farther and farther. Until just recently we made it to the end, and beat the game. I've never paid so little for a game that gave me so much satisfaction, and it's not done. Once you beat the game, you notice that there are many hats, races and companions to be unlocked if you complete certain acchievements, such as "beat the game without chopping a single tree" or "beat the game without killing any monsters" for a budget-priced game, it's got some good replayablility value. Magicite will keep you interested, and having fun, and you'll always feel good about paying so little for it.

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.
