The War of the Solstice - One of the greatest Adventure/War games (The Lords of Midnight) gets a 3D remake

Another hot news update as we've just been informed by FrozenEmpire, that they have released a 3D remake of 'The Lords of Midnight' by Mike Singleton; a game for its time which featured a groundbreaking technique called landscaping to depict the lands of Midnight from a first-person perspective. It was originally released way back in 1984 for the ZX Spectrum, C64 and the Amstrad CPC, in many magazines it was voted with high scores and even a game of the year.

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.

According to the creator of this fine looking remake, although the game's default mechanics remain faithful to the original and is a free download using a wide variety of paid professional game dev assets. The playing experience has been significantly adapted through a total 3D conversion and the addition of an immersive soundtrack which contains many custom pieces written specifically for the game. There are also several additions including options for a custom ruleset bringing increased levels of difficulty, and a community leaderboard where you can compare the quality of your victories with other Midnight commanders... So yes it certainly sounds like it could be a good game indeed for fans of Lords of Midnight!
