Over the past couple of years, I’ve been digging books that mix guns and magic. Some standouts include Matt Fobeck’s “Shotguns & Sorcery” and Brian McCellan’s Powder Mage trilogy.

Wizard with a Gun reminds me of these. Publisher Devolver Digital showed it off today during its Devolver Max Pass+ game-comedy event (one that’s most certainly not a part of E3). From Galvanic Games, Wizard with a Gun features cute, Final Fantasy Black Mage-esque sorcerers running around with mystical firearms. This online co-op game is coming to PC and Switch in 2022.

The trailer shows the gun-tottin’ geomancers (OK, they may not be geomancers, but I like the alliteration) fighting monsters in a magical world. You craft bullets and guns, infusing them with magic (the trailer has them using a squeeze dropper to put a teensy bit of red stuff into a bullet in a chemical lab).

Galvanic’s past projects include Some Distant Memory and Rapture Rejects.
