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...

Nifty. Challenging. Pretty good, all things told. Don't know a thing about the devs or history, though, so search other reviews if that sort of stuff matters to you.

Yes, I have a limited amount of time on this game, and from my limited amount of time, I actually enjoyed it. However, there is one reason why I cannot recommend this game: There is no save feature. I love rogue-likes and permadeath, but not having a save feature does not impact the difficulty of the game, only the functionality.

This is especially annoying when it comes to multiplayer. Rarely do I have 1+ hours to sit at my computer playing a game nonstop. For this game, you would be forced to work this out between yourselves, limiting what you could actually accomplish. It doesn't make sense that you wouldn't include such a feature, since the game has prebuilt towns that would make a perfect save point.

All-in-all, if you have the time to invest multiple hours in succession, this game seems to be very enjoyable. If you are like me, however, and do not have such freedom with your time, it would be a shame to invest in this game.

-Good sides of the game------------------------------------------------------

.The game has very good graphics that fit it really well.
.The mobs (monsters) are very well designed and have good animations.
.Every new area has an unique look to it and has well fitted monsters.
.Bosses and regular mobs have good difficulty levels for each area.
.The game has a lot to do and has a lot of things to unlock.
.The game has good music that seems to fit the atmosphere.

-Bad sides of game--------------------------------------------------------------

.The attacking cycles for the mobs are a little wonky.
.It sometimes messes with you and puts a charging mob infront of you when you start.
.Selling items barley gives you anything.
.There isn't much invetory space so sometimes you have to go through lots of trouble just to pick up an item, therefore waisting time.
.There isn't mob health bars so you dont know how many time to hit it (sometimes this really messes you up).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Despite how many things this game has bad there is a lot of good going for it, so I'd recommend this to anyone interested in it. Trust me its not a waste of money.

As a frequenter of games from the rogue-like genre I know how hard it can be be to find unique rogue-like games. While Magicite is not super unique, it is a very fun and addictive game; I logged 100 hours in no time. If your looking for a fun and addictive rogue-like game, I highly reccomend this one.

Absolutely wonderful game, and is enjoyable to play with or without friends. The game has a great one life system and friends can revive. The only fault is choosing character skills. I like a specific 2 skills and it takes up to 15 minutes to get that skill because its just a button to click to get a random skillset. Besides that ONE fault this game is the best rogue-like game ive played

I've had this game for so long, but I never forgot how great it was. I have now since revisited, mostly to shake off the rust, because Sean has stated in the Roguelands 1.0 update that he will now start working on it again. This was my favorite rogue-like game for around a year, and probably what got me into this genre.

Difficult to play single-player. This one's made for multi-player... and the more the merrier. You start off with only a few points of health, so you can die very quickly if you don't have a teammate to revive you. With enough practice, it's not so difficult to solo, but starting off co-op is recommended.

A few bugs (some items do not and never will unlock, like gatherer and naming and in-game cheat) and sometimes your toon will get stuck facing backwards)(and one very large one (if too many people try to go through the door at the same time), but otherwise it's legit. As long as you're not really going for unlocking everything, it's good fun. *NOTE: must love frustration and have tenacity. You will yell at this game. A lot.

Magicite is a overwhelmingly fun game to play with friends. However, the lack of new content and various bugs in multiplayer (ie. item duplication when players stand on each other, black screen upon entering a district, etc..) make the game unenjoyable sometimes. I undestand that the developer has put a lot of work into their title Roguelands recently, but if the major bugs are fixed and new content is added the game would deserve a better rating.
