You have to check this game out!

You play as a mage in a game world where you make your own spells by mixing various elements, for example: Water + Frost will make your wizard shoot ice shards. The numbers of combos are amazing, like lava rocks, explosive mines, fire shields, etc.

The entire game has DungeonRunner's style humor in it, like Vlad, your "Not a Vampire" wizard master who you spot at one point "Just Chatting" with a villager.
At one point you can find Excalibur stuck in a rock behind a pasture, you pull it out and end up with a sword with a chunk of rock on the end that you can use in melee combat.

It's a lot of fun and it's only $10 on steam, so go check it out:

Oh, and the humor carries over into the achievements:

I noticed a few bugs, but they seem to be fixing them at a steady (and fast) rate. The worst was the jitter on high-end pcs, which is now fixed. :3

Best part is the humor, here are just a few things I've encountered in my short time playing:
  • Knocking a (friendly) soldier down a pit to earn the "This is MAGICKAAA!" achievement (go watch 300 if you don't get this).
  • Finding a M60 machine gun to replace your sword.
  • Solid Snake achievement for killing a giant snake (boss)
  • KHAAAAAAN!!! Achievement for killing another boss
  • NPC's commenting on you wearing a bathrobe
  • An NPC at the start of the game offers to reward you for saving their life, then comments on the game's lack of an inventory system, "oh well". The same NPC goes on to comment how she has "this odd golden question mark thingy" following her around lately (quest icon).
  • A bit where a soldier named Admiral Ackbar shouts "It's a trap!"
  • A bit shortly after where the king reenacts a scene from Star Wars by throwing a mage down a pit while the mage is trying to cast lightning.
