Magicka card game heads to Kickstarter — thanks to a 10-year-old boy

Game devs are starting early these days

The Magicka series' next entry is a card game, Paradox Interactive announced today. Magicka Mayhem is now accepting donations on Kickstarter — a campaign that was launched by 10-year-old Ethan Erickson and his dad, Ken.

Ethan himself premiered the concept for the game on-stage during Paradox Interactive's event. The Kickstarter page offers more details but, according to Ethan, the strategy-based card game will translate the elemental wizardry and sense of humor of the Magicka games from the TV screen to the living room table.

The Kickstarter is open for the next 30 days. The Ericksons, to whom Paradox licensed the Magicka brand, are seeking $2,500 to fund the tabletop game project.

The latest release on the video game side of the brand is Magicka 2, which launched on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC last year.
