Amidst the traditional mayhem of the Devolver Digital E3 showcase were announcements for some truly interesting-looking games. One such title was Galvanic’s Wizard with a Gun. This isometric co-op survival game puts an interesting twist on the idea of wizards, asking the question: What if they had old-timey guns? The firearms in Wizard with a Gun aren’t your run-of-the-mill flintlocks and blunderbusses, but are, in fact, magical guns loaded with mystical bullets that fire off like spells!

If that hasn’t piqued your interest, then this reveal trailer showcasing the game’s stylized world and weaponry absolutely will:
 

 

“Wizard with a Gun is an online cooperative sandbox survival game set in a magical wilderness wrought with dangerous creatures and arcane mysteries. Embark on a journey alone or with friends to collect, craft, and outfit your wizard however you see fit as you explore the unknown. Carefully design weapons, bullets, and furnishings for your tower home but try not to burn it all down as the magic you wield escalates beyond your control…

Magical Weapon Customization
Collect resources from the world and craft unique enchanted ammunition for your arsenal of guns. Combine elements for intended or surprising effects that alter the shot, blast radius, bullet trail, and even the status of the creature in your crosshairs

Customized Whimsical Wizards
Create a dazzling wardrobe for your magic wielder from robes and hats to armor and accessories – functional and fashionable in a way that’s sure to impress.

Randomly Generated Biomes
Explore and uncover new sections of the world filled with deserts, swamps, tundra, and prairies – all loosely floating together through space and time after the world was fractured. Unleash cosmic power from the safety of your tower to reset the world and emerge once again to find a new layout to once familiar lands.

Cooperative Adventuring
Survive alone or with up to four other wizards in online cooperative play to combine resources, magic, and creativity in your tower building. Or just watch it all burn down together – the choice is yours.

Systemic Gameplay
Experiment with new spell combinations and find out how they affect enemies and the world around you the hard way. Creative arrangements can lead to powerful creations that overwhelm your foes while untethered amalgamations can be a recipe for disaster!

Wizard with a Gun will magically blast its way onto Nintendo Switch in 2022!
