The key to this game's awesomeness is that quick line about combining elements to cast spells. I played the demo, then gave it my money, and then came here to tell YOU about it.

 

Element combining is fucking insane. Take this small scenario! I combine Shield and Water and press the middle mouse button on myself, making myself immune to water's ability to get me wet. I combine fire and water to make water vapor, then cast water again, and use spacebar to use that combination to summon rain. Everything around me being wet now, I cast lightning five times, hold shift and then press the right mouse key to do an area of effect lightning attack. Because they're wet, the lightning chains, and the monsters die.

 

And if you're wet, SO DO YOU.

 

This game is the right amount of hard, cute, and awesome to get ten dollars from me. Ten dollars! That's all they're asking! Play the demo and see if you don't want to give them ten of yours.

 

On steam.

I just saw this interview on gametrailers:

I am now VERY much interested in playing this. I love the idea of mix&matching spells on the fly for different effect. The friendly fire aspect I can see a lot of players screaming at teammates "WHERE TEH FUCK U AIMIN?!!11", but I agree with the man here. It does add more strategy and depth to the combat.

 

Yeah the bugs sound like a real problem, but I'm still compelled to try/buy this PC gem.
