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.

Magicite 1.6 Released!

Hey all! This is the big multiplayer fix update. I decided to stuff some goodies into this update as well. There's a new race, unlocked only by defeating a new secret boss that is even harder than the Scourge Wall !

Bug Fixes
-HUGE improvements in Multiplayer/Lag.
-Disabled the observation of position/rotation in non-moving objects over the network.
-Rigidbodies of Player Objects are now kinematic if not owned, preventing clients from battling for the correction position of player objects.
-Final boss no longer just disappears upon being killed, added a proper death animation.

Gameplay
Added the Spirit Race!
Added optional boss Spirit Knight Axelark III
Added Spirit Gem
Added Jared's Bear Helm(Unlocked with Cheat Code)
Fire bow nerfed from x2 to x1.25 damage
Scourge Wall now shoots twice as many projectiles with varying speeds

Magicite has really come a long way, and I have all of you to thank for it! I'm really excited by this whole secret boss thing, so if you guys have any other cool ideas for new tough secret bosses please post them below!

As always, thanks a lot for your support.

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...

Whilst I have never played this game solo, I can say beyond any shadow of doubt that it is well worth it for the multiplayer. Everything is balanced perfectly.

When somebody mines an ore node, an ore drops for every player. If you have one dedicated miner/crafter then everybody becomes relatively kitted out in a reasonable amount of time. Yes, RNGesus can come in and declare you unworthy of the correct ore nodes, and when it happens it sucks, but it's rare enough that it doesn't ruin anything.

The controls are tight, very tight. When you glub up, you know it's because YOU glubbed up. The only thing I wish is that I could rebind things a little more. Like having the dash be a double-tap instead of hitting E and Q. It feels strange to me personally, maybe it works for you though.

You will die, and you will die a lot. You'll keep coming back though. Grab a few friends and let the good times roll.

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
