Associate Producer Peter Cornelius also praises DualShock 4, won’t personally go back to mouse and keyboard.
The team at Paradox Interactive and Pieces Interactive are hard at work on developing the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of Magicka 2. In our interview with the game’s Associate Producer Peter Cornelius, we asked his thoughts on the PS4 and whether it is safe to assume that the console is basically a gaming PC with potential for high end capabilities.
Peter’s reply was short but upto the point. “That’s a pretty good way to put it,” he said to GamingBolt. We also asked about how Paradox’s partnership came about with Sony, to which he replied,”How did chocolate ice cream come about? Some combinations are just meant to happen.”
He was also all praise for the DualShock 4 and explained how he prefers it over a mouse and keyboard. “I know many think of Magicka as a mouse and keyboard game and it still is for those who want to play that way. I however have completely converted to the game pad.”
“The game pad works incredibly well. One stick is for moving around, the other for directing ones’ spells. It makes magic casting simple without making it easy. But the difficulty is in the game–the wave of long toothed beasts coming at you, making you stressed and accidentally trying to heal yourself with death magic. The game pad is your friend, not an extra obstacle.”
“I will personally not go back to mouse and keyboard,” he added.
Magicka 2 is due this year for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
