Worlds of Magic - a continuation to Master of Magic
« on: April 05, 2013, 02:02:36 PM »
Hello there Arcen Games fans.

I'm hoping you won't find this thread spamming.
If  you like 4X strategy games and especially Master of Magic, here comes the successor. We, the fans, have decided to create Worlds of Magic and currently launched the Kickstarter project which will help us to finish the game earlier.

Thank you very much!

Kickstarter appears to not be letting me to use Amazon Payments for this so I'll have to wait a bit to pledge until I've got something else handy, but I really wish you well with this :)

It's probably my favorite PC game, and I spent a few months helping someone with an actual Master of Magic clone at one point (it was a functional client-server game and worked from the original MBX files from one's hopefully-legitimate copy, though the AI was still largely incomplete), so you could say I'm pretty familiar with it ;)
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

Hi keith.lamothe
Thanks for the kind words.

The Kickstarter is set up in UK, this is why backers can't use the Amazon accounts :(
We are receiving a lot of info about this situation, but we are really not able to do anything with this situation.

It sounds really great what you are describing. In a long run we are planning to make a server handling the multiplayer games and allow to cross platform games.

But this is after we will rise the initial amount of money.

If you would have some tips for us, please share them on our forum or directly with us.

I'm hoping that the Amazon thing doesn't scare you before telling your friends about Worlds of Magic.

Hi

The Worlds of Magic is moving forward, and at the beginning of the next week we should have some new nice images of the world map.

Now just some concept and a developers video about the evolution of the battleboard.

I’m hoping that you will help us bringing the old good times of PC gaming back.
