Master of Magic – Caster of Magic For Windows (CoM2) Released!

Some of you probably know of Seravy’s Caster of Magic mod for good old 1994 DOS classic 4x TBS Master of Magic. Well he’s painstakingly rebuilt CoM in a new windows based engine and it’s been officially released on SteamGoG & Slitherine’s own store a few days ago! Turns out it’s still 320×200 stretched sadly but there’s heaps of improvements eg a gazillion bug fixes & balance changes, super smart AI opponents, more spells, more buildings, more advanced game modes & options, and best of all NO MORE 5 PLAYER LIMIT!! So umm 14 Wizards going at it in one game? Yes please!

I know some people aren’t huge fans of CoM’s changes but maybe Slitherine will take Seravy’s new engine source and do a ‘MoM for Windows’ one day too. Probably wishful thinking but you never know!

Feel free to drop by the Master of Magic fans Facebook and Discord groups to discuss. Seravy himself is kindly answering questions and bug reports on the discord too!

Familiar but not quite the same ;)
