Lords Of Midnight - One of the greatest Adventure/War game's has a remake

Another hot news update today and we are going to get a Remake of Lords of Midnight, I'm sure many of us know that recently this year Mike Singleton, author of Lords Of Midnight passed away and many of us were deeply saddened by this news. So it's great to know that a Remake is coming and I think many of us should try it out just to relive how great a game this was and in respect of Mike Singleton.

But what is Lords of Midnight?, Lords of Midnight is an Adventure/War game which starts with four characters (Luxor the Moonprince, Rorthron the Wise, Corleth the Fey, and Morkin), and then has the option to recruit up to twenty eight further Lords (Ithrorn, The Utarg of Utarg, Blood, Xajorkith, Shadows, and so on) to the cause in the quest to destroy Doomdark, the Witchking of Midnight. The game kinda has a Lord of the Rings flavor, recruiting armies and lords to fight the Evil Bad guy.

The game for it's time featured a groundbreaking technique called landscaping to depict the lands of Midnight from a first-person perspective. Landscaping had a 3D effect with pre-scaled images of mountains, forests, buildings, etc. to create the impression of a perspective-correct landscape scene, available from a viewpoint of 8 points of the compass hence Landscaping.

This title appeared on a multitude of systems including ZX Spectrum, C64 and the Amstrad CPC, in many magazines it was voted with high scores and even a game of the year.

This remake is due on the 21st of December for a small fee and to be honest, i'm going to pay that price just to say Thank you to the developers and Mike Singleton
