Magicite v2.0 Released!

Magicite v2.0 (Final Update)

Hey all! I know it's been 10 years since the last update but here it is. I went through all of the code and cleaned up a bunch of things, making the game run smoother in both single player and multiplayer. I've also added the final companion unlock as well as a brand new mode!

-Added Madman Mode (Warning: Only for strong-willed Magicite Veterans!)
-Added 4th Age Droid [New Companion]
-Trees/Ores/Bugspots/Itemstands/Enemies/etc. now drop items LOCALLY for every player, lessening the network load a ton and also makes sure everyone gets an equal amount of loot!
-EXP/Gold are also dropped locally as well, making network a lot smoother.
-You can now select your traits rather than having to pray to RNGesus.
-Added various sound effects.
-Added awesome new Inventory/Crafting textures.
-Inventory can be opened with R or TAB keys.
-You can't spam W to skip biomes wtf u cheaters.
-Spirit Race stats have been changed from [HP+5, ATK+15] to [HP+7, ATK+3]
-Optimized networking code a lot more.
-Mysterious Potion now heals for 10 HP, 10 Mana, or just throws a poison vial.
-Big Mysterious Potion now heals for 15 HP, 15 Mana, or just throws a poison vial.
-Laser Crossbow no longer only deals 1 damage.
-Wooden Club now gives 18 ATK.
-Fairies now have 90 hp, 4 atk, and move faster.
-Throwing Axe now deals half damage.
-Flame of Hope now only gives you 1 point to a random stat upon levelling up.

Thank you all so much for the support for my games. Magicite was my very first PC game that I made when I was a junior in college, and I never thought it would achieve such a massive following. It exceeded my wildest dreams and solidified my passion for the world of indie game development.

BUT it also threw me into a crazed depression for quite a bit of time.

This is the final update for Magicite. As a 1 man dev team I need to move on to bigger and better things. It's okay if you hate me for it, and as I've said before on reddit and on Steam, I'll always provide refunds to players who feel that they've been cheated of their money regardless of playtime on Steam. YOU as the player should hold all of the power over us developers, and it is our job to make games that are fun and worth their price tag.

But guys I can't work on this game anymore. I need to grow as a game developer and I need to challenge myself with new ideas. There could be 100 more updates made to Magicite and I could keep refining it into better and better versions of itself, but it would still just be Magicite. I would be miserable. I've learned so much during the past couple of years and I'm itching to flex my programming and art skills a little more. For my sanity, I NEED to pursue my new ambitious ideas.

So I hope for $9.99, $4.99, or whatever you've paid for Magicite, it has been worth it. I've watched tons of your guys' videos on youtube and I've seen the heart-pounding chaotic fun in my dangerous world of Deephaven. I hope these moments hold a special place in your heart, because they certainly do for me.

So really, thank you so much again for your support. I hope to impress all of you with the big projects I have planned in the coming years.

Love,
-Sean

P.S. Please post any new bugs from this update since I'm good at making them. I'll be releasing hotfixes over the next couple of days.

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...

The game itself is fun, but there's a little bit things that quite not right


Personal Rating : Worth to play, Not worth to master
Traditional Rating : 7/10


Magicite is fun! it's a simple game that have a very clear objective from the start
Go to the next dungeon

Not just that, the battle also quite fun and challangeing,
gameplay are eerily similar to Rogue Legacy, but still have different approach.
You get stronger by unlocked new ability, hero, or equipped item. Then the problem appears :

Cons
- The unlockables are generately random, for example :
"Defeat Boss X and have 20% chance to unlocked this maybe awesome guy"
getting to the Boss level and defeat him is already hard enough for a rogue-like game, adding the % chance just made us think it's a waste of time mastering the game itself.

- Stats Upgrade also random, yes it makes every run is different and unique, but it also make every "bad luck stat" is annoying.

- Item combination is a tough one, there's no recipe information whatsoever, maybe you can get along with some of the item combination after 20-30 runs. And there's no different window for combining, it's in your inventory, drag and drop to another item to combine, accident click are common.

- Inventory is a mess, it's hard to slice up items if you need some. Left-click to hold the item, Right-click to divide it in half, what if I have 40 woods and I only need 2? You guess it, 40:2 = 20, 20:2 = 10, 10:2=5, somehow odd number like 5 get you 3&2, look how much inventory space I needed?.

Pros
Overall, the game are very challangeing and somewhat fun to play because of curiosity to unlock new things. But you need congenital-luck to progress fast in this game.

Magicite is a great game created by Sean Young, a one man developer. At this time, he will no longer post real updates but will be posting hotfixes. He also created roguelands and soon another game, which I've heard will be a mobile RPG game. This game is a Single/Multiplayer 2D sidescrolling roguelike RPG in which you must defeat the scourge, who are basically just creepy purple alien/demons/things. This game has a large learning curve and can be very difficult, so if you don't like difficult games I would not recommend. However, if you like a challenge there is much to be had here. There isn't really an overall goal to the game except to collect all races, hats, and companions which are modifiers to make the game easier or harder. You can unlock about half the content without beating the game, three or four items by beating it, and the other half by beating the game in certain ways (such as without crafting anything). TL;DR: The game is hard but fun.

Amazing game and hours of fun, the only problem tho is that when you have unlocked pretty much everything, it gets tiresome.

would not buy this for actual money, it feels like half a beta of a game that someone got bored of making and released as it is.

while the core concept is good, it is infested with glitches and the core game remains unbalanced and dysfunctional.

It's a fun play game if you have friends that likes to play with you!
But there is one thing that really makes me sick about it... the achivements.
Nope, I'm not the type of gamer that feel sick just because I can't get all of the achivements.
So the reason that I want to talk about it is that they're binding with the races, hats, pets that you can choose at beginning.
And all of them have diffrent states that will change the gameplays.
I know that unlocking things that makes you stronger is the fun part while you playing a rogue-like game,
but... some of them are just too hard that I don't really have the guts to get it,
and some of them even just give you debuffs so it's not worth to take the challenge to unlock them.
This just kinda bugs me... so sorry I can't really recommand this game if you're the kind of player that likes to unlock all achivements or in-game items like me.

This game takes a bit to get used to, especially crafting. I recomend this game if you like platformers combined with crafting. This game can go a long way; I have beating the entire game and i definetely believe it is worth the money. If you get bored, play MADMAN mode. the mode has a special surprise at the beginning of each level. Multi-player is broken sometimes but it is really fun to play alone, and worth dying each time. Hope you enjoyed :D

I see that people are complaining about how he said he has stoped working on the game. If you were an indie developer would you work on the same game forever, never stop updating it? No you would eventually move on to a new game. At least he has the nerve to come out openly and say that he will no longer be updating the game. And if you still hate this game for that, then go and get your free refund for the game. I love magicite and the multiplayer may be glitchy but it is a fun game none the less and if you want to play any kind of game, then don't be lazy go learn how to port forward and play with your friends.

A whole ton of fun to play. With varying and strong gameplay, this rogue-like is definitely worth buying. It is fun, has great art and music, amazing enemy designs and "level design". I love it, and you might, too.
