ATI HD 3870
Some users on the forums have reported that the latest catalyst drivers solved the driver reset issue with Magicka. Some have even reported improved frame rates on their ATI cards. We are currently not satisfied that the HD 3870 issue is solved, and it will remain that way until more users have reported the same. We would like to ask all the Magicka players that use a HD 3870, and had the driver reset problem earlier, to report if the drivers indeed solved the issue.
The Arrowhead Twitter
The Arrowhead Twitter account has been somewhat inactive lately but it is now becoming a bit more active. It will mostly contain news about what's happening in the office and if you feel like you want to share our wisdom (bad jokes, interesting developments, hints of what to come or just meaningless filler tweets) you can follow us at twitter.com/arrowheadgs.
Interview with Fredrik Wester
Fredrik Wester, the CEO of Paradox, talks in an interview with Joystiq earlier this week about a Magicka sequel, moving to Stockholm and the possibility of Magicka for consoles. If you are interested in the interview you can find it here: http://www.joystiq.com/2011/05/03/ma...ansion-sold-o/
Fred is a great guy and Fred loves to talk. Who knows, you'll probably see a Magicka sequel down the line, but at the moment we've got so much more fun stuff to do for Magicka. We also have some ideas for other projects that we would very much like the chance to work on.
Its going to be really cozy to get closer to Paradox and we are looking forward to sharing beer with them more often. But just for the record, they are not owned by Arrowhead, yet, at least.
May the WED be with you!
