SteamOS/Linux/Mac OS?
I'll be the one who start this thread for Magicka 2.
Any hope for cross-platform release ?

I'd like to ask everyone to refrain from posting "+1 for linux/mac" comments. Please use the poll instead if you want to show your support but don't have anything valuable to contribute to this discussion. Thanks!

Hi Guys,
It might be beating a dead horse here but yes, we are working on a Linux version of Magicka 2.
Its planned to be released fall 2015. We do have dedicated resources for Linux so its not just something we do when we got some free time.

+1 for Linux, I heard good things about Magicka but I could never play it myself because of no Linux version.

Wishlisted! Full gamepad support, though? Please?
zais Feb 26, 2015 @ 6:42am 
I'll say gamepad will be on release (as it targeted to PS4 as well, and pre-release gameplay demos were with gamepads).
