Paradox Announces Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet for Largely Rectangular Tablets

NEW YORK — February 5, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and an advocate of robe-wearing, today announced the forthcoming release of Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet for iPad and Android tablets. The new title brings the franchise’s innovative and ridiculous gameplay to tablet devices in an all-new adventure, featuring everything that made Magicka a smash hit on the PC, including the unique element-combining spellcasting system, the twisted humor, and the robes of every imaginable hue. Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet will allow for four-player co-op gameplay across platforms, allowing players to discover which ignites faster – an iPad or an Android tablet.

Developed by Ludosity, Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet continues the rich Paradox tradition of publishing games with “Magicka” in the title. Check out the newly released website for more information: http://magickagame.com/squaretablet
