Yes the time has finally come for a brand new section in the site. I’d originally planned to spend a few weeks updating all the old sections and then work on 3 big news ones. However the updates became so extensive that its taken me nearly 3 months! My interest is starting to burn out and I’m hell keen to get back to gaming so I’ve decided to do only 2 big new sections this year as this one was almost done anyway.
The first is a Master of Magic section! The great turn based fantasy strategy classic that inspired so many other great game series out there. Also one of the saddest gaming histories as this great successful game never got the sequel it deserved. Simtex and Microprose made 2 attempts to do a sequel but both fell through and never got finished. Once Atari got the rights to the game they have since never let anyone work on it demanding too much money from any studio asking.
So as I usually do I did a big tribute to the game and then looked to the fan community and across the MoM genre of games to find a lot of great stuff out there. The spirit of MoM lives on in many great games series like Warlock, Endless Legend, Elemental, Eador and Age of Wonders all turning into successful series franchises using the MoM forumla. There are more games, mods and great fan projects out there that I’ve found too.
So if you’re a Master of Magic go check out my page to see them all and let me know if there’s more I’ve missed!
