Default Magicka

Ok, it's not strictly an aRPG (no loot or levelling), but it plays similarly to one. Magicka is $10 and has a pretty neat magic combo system. The game is meant to be played co-op, and friendly fire is very much in play.

RPS has a pretty good article that sums up why the game is fun:

The game is pretty buggy right now and the frame rate (even on newer machines) is less than stellar, but the devs have already put out a patch addressing some of the problems. $10!

I'm ebarstad on Steam; hit me up for some co-op if you see me online.

This one looks interesting. How long is the game? Is anything randomly generated?

It's not random, but there are additional "challenges" outside of the main story that you can play. I haven't gotten very far into the story, so I'm not sure how long it is.

In SP, most of the enjoyment comes from the humour and figuring out different spell combos. Playing with other people would make the game less frustrating (it can be difficult going solo) and pretty funny because of all the friendly fire "accidents."

the game is definitely funny, I think the narration being the key to it all. nothing quite like the language of the swedish chef

I think I'm Llew Silverhand on steam, if you want to tag me there for some co-op. Though that might just be my screen name vs acct name, I dunno...

Yeah, D2D and GamersGate both have it (at least in North America).
