Magicka is an action-adventure game set in the fantasy world of Midgård, where elemental magic rules the land, goblins and trolls are perfectly harmless – well, perhaps not entirely, and all the villagers are wise-cracking smartalecks.

Created by Arrowhead Game Studios and published by Paradox Interactive, Magicka was released on 25 January 2011.


In Magicka, four mages from a sacred order fight against an evil warlock and his creations. The game world is based loosely on Norse Mythology, drawing inspiration from other western fantasy settings such as Warhammer and featuring numerous humorous references to various video games, novels and fictional universes including Star Wars and World of Warcraft as well as games its creators drew inspiration from such as Diablo.
