So I shelled out my hard earned and bought Magicka on Steam. It looked like a fun casual game.
I played for 21 minutes and reached the 1st checkpoint and thought it would be safe to quit.
Apparently, according to many forum posts, the game only saves at the end of each “chapter”. Seems this isn’t a casual game at all. It’s the equivalent of an old-school hardcore platformer. I’m too old for that kind of shit.
At least I only wasted 3 bucks.
