Originally made for the Global Game Jam 2015, Tragic Magic is a two player versus game about two wizards trying to learn magic. Players are each presented with two books of spells which sit atop the table & contain button combos for novice & expert spells. Once a combo has been entered, the player aims and casts at the other wizard by pointing and flicking their wand.

The game depends upon the custom controller Max created during the 48hr jam, using a plastic box and a whole lot of duct tape.
The arcade buttons are connected to an i-PAC 2 which sends the button inputs to the computer as key presses.
The wands are detected using the Leap Motion Controller's default tool tracking, which allows tracking of positioning & gestures of each wand.
At the end of each round players have the option to tweet the outcome along with a screenshot of the battle's aftermath.
