You are not sending me to the cooler

The last we heard of The Showdown Effect, the new side-scrolling and cartoony shootybangbang game from the makers of the reliably silly Magicka, was back in April. Now, it’s spooling up its beta-testing mini-gun, and hopes to lure in passers-by by revelling shamelessly in as many action movie cliches as it can conjure up. CONJURE LIKE IN MAGICKA. (more…)

Product Update - Valve
1.4.11.1
- In continued support of Magicka and the new Big Picture mode we've greased some of the machinery and among other small Big Picture fixes and adjustments, fixed the Manual (IP) connection dialogue updated to work with the Daisy Wheel.

Product Update - Valve
1.4.11.0
Magicka now gets full controller support for steams upcoming Big Picture mode.
- Players can now access the steam-overlay with a gamepad and type text with the new "DaisyWheel" in Big Picture mode.
- The SteamStore, Facebook and Twitter-buttons visible in all menus can now be navigated with a gamepad.
- An icon has been added to players in the pre-game lobby to illustrate what controller they use.

Product Release - Valve
Grimnir's Laboratory, new content for Magicka, is now available on Steam!

Fight against 16 waves of monstrous foes on an all new map. Experience a new twist on the traditional challenge mode with elemental alters that dictate what spells and elements can be used. Three new doctors, in oddly familiar robes, have come to your aid in defeating the hordes. Will you and your friends be able to survive Grimnir’s horrors?

Product Update - Valve
Magicka 1.4.10.0
- This update supports the new Dungeons & Daemons DLC
- Also added support for the upcoming Grimnir’s Laboratory, a Co-op challenge map with a twist that comes with new robes suitable for a magick labwork.
- Fixed an issue where health regen numbers showed even when at full health. Being more than fully alive is generally frowned upon in Midgård.

In case you missed last weeks patch:
- Fixed an issue where the list of Magicks would give the wizards paper cuts and crash the game. Its edges have now been properly blunted as per Wizard Academy standards.
- Added some missing characters to certain fonts. Continuing our commitment to offering characters to all fonts everywhere.
- Fixed a pathfinding crash. Took us a bit, but we found it.
- Fixed disappearing boss Vlad. Turns out he was just at the bar up the street.
- Fixed a crash when killing frozen Khan (and possibly other bosses). KHAAAAAAN!
- Fixed camera issue when being revived by the fairy. Fairies weren’t previously aware of auto-focus.
- Fixed NPC spellcaster AI sometimes freezing up. After taking some public speaking classes, though, the NPC finally warmed up.
- Mobs are now able to spawn their own kind upon death. That sounds kinda gross, actually.
- Added some new functionality to scene scripts. Scene scripts run. Run, scripts, run!
- Reduced the physical damage resistance of Enraged Goblin Warlocks. Let’s face it, Warlocks sound all-powerful but they’re really just a bunch of pansies.
- Fixed a localization crash. Que haya sido reparado.
- Fixed a crash with the Performance Enchantment magick. Talk to your doctor first.
- Fixed a crash that occurred when firing a water projectile during a level transition. That’ll show those pesky levels who’s boss around here.
- Fixed an issue with collision checks that resulted in multiple fall damage. Large Hadron Collider consulted, collisions now in check.
- Fixed certain lights being removed when restarting a scene. Disco disco, good good.
- Fixed scores being inconsistent between client and host in challenges. Issues resolved with just a couple trust falls.
- Fixed script delays being reset when restarting a challenge level. No more delays, the movie will finally be coming out soon.
- Fixed element icons getting stuck highlighted when disabled (as in Elemental Roulette). Now if we could only get our car’s dome light to turn off.
- Fixed a crash where players were gripped during level transition. Now they’ll just be gripped in anticipation, amirite?!
- General stability improvements.

Product Update - Valve
1.4.9.1

- Fixed a recently introduced issue where the list of Magicks would give the wizards paper cuts and crash the game. Its edges have now been properly blunted as per Wizard Academy standards.
