Magicka is an action/adventure game currently under development by Arrowhead Game Studios. The concept of Magicka first came to life in 2008 as a submission to the Swedish Game Awards, Sweden's largest game development competition. The game was first visualized in 2D but has since been remade in 3D and uses much more advanced technology.

By proclamation the wizards of Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Games have issued an exclusive invitation to join the limited Closed Beta for  Magicka. See for yourself the extraordinary wonders in this quite frankly awesome upcoming fantasy adventure game!
