..kind of get the impression that the game is seriously awesome. And now I want to play it, even though I don't really understand why :D

Not sure I can come up with a good critique, though. But.. couple of things:
-I think it's "safe word".
-"(...) humor in the developers[..direly affected the humour of the developers..?],[<- a period there..?] which has, in turn, [one of the few times I'm ever going to suggest an extra sentence doesn't sound right :p] made it[transferred to?] into their game, much to this reviewer's pleasure. The game [the presentation, the game flow?] has a simple style to it, between the pseudo-Swedish language of the land and the light-hearted dialogue found throughout, intermixed with pop-culture and internet memes, you'll be amused at the multiple references made both covertly and overtly during the game[shorter sentence? You'll be amused-> the references to.. will amuse you..?]"

...it's only that paragraph that seems off to me, really. Maybe something more on the way the game is played would be an idea - just enough to make it obvious what the magick mixing is about.

tbh that was the only paragraph I was having difficulty conveying. How do you tell someone something is funny without either A: giving away the punchlines or B: just going "seriously, it's funny, trust me"

v0v blame emp :P

Also the safe word quote is direct from the game, whether that's a misquote of Family Guy I dunno.


No.

I played the demo and was unimpressed, though everyone who actually played it loves it. All my friends who played it finished it already, so there goes my chance at multiplayer. I'll probably play it eventually.

Very effective, short review! I will say a few things:

The developers worked hard since release, however, and rekeased daily patches

Did you mean "released"?

only instead of running around bashing everything, you instead attempt to combine

Might be more effective with only one "instead".

or even attempting to channel electricity while your robes are soaked will quickly learn you otherwise

I'm not sure if it was for effect, but I think "learn" might be "teach".

Again, very effective review! I still have this one my wishlist on Steam, but until I finish a few more games and obtain some more cash, it's not likely that I'll get it in the future.

Ah, the old 'blame EmP' routine. Still in fashion after all these years.

Good review, Blah.


For us. For them. For you.

How do you tell someone something is funny without either A: giving away the punchlines or B: just going "seriously, it's funny, trust me"

The game encourages you to have fun with spells but also cautions about the dangers of spell use. For example you can dry yourself with the fire spell but if you are not wet then using fire on yourself is a bad idea. We could probably all guess that but the game has a unique, and funny, way of telling you about that.

Something like that might work.

You need to fix this sentence.

The developers worked hard since release, however, and rekeased released daily patches until the game had become stable..

The chances of you killing yourself in a an explosive fashion are high
