More Diablo stuff inc.

08 August 2018 - 03:14 PM

Everyone* thought that the Diablo franchise was dead cos Diablo 3 turned out to be a giant stinker**,but no! - there's unannounced Diablo stuff under development at Blizzard.

Your guess is as good as mine at this stage - Switch conversion? Druid DLC? Diablo IV? - but there it is.

*not everyone

** I liked it

MGS "Endless Space 2 - Collection" Hmm....

10 July 2018 - 08:39 PM

So, according to the MGS page,  Sega's Endless Space 2 - Collection

"Will NOT activate in the following countries: GB, SE, NO, DK, FI, AL, AD, AR, AT, BE, BO, BA, BR, BG, CL, CN, CO, HR, CY, CZ, EC, EE, FR, DE, GR, GY, HU, IS, IE, IT, JP, KP, KR, LV, LI, LT, LU, MK, MT, MC, NL, PY, PE, PL, PT, RO, SM, SK, SI, ES, SR, CH, TW, TR, UY, VA, VE, AX, RS, ME, FO, FK, GF, EU, GG, GI, GL, GP, HK, IM, JE, MF, MQ, NC, PF, PM, RE, SJ, YT"

Maybe it's easier to list the countries it will activate in?

Jeff Vogel announces new game: 'Queen's Wish: The Conqueror'

30 May 2018 - 06:25 AM

Jeff Vogel, boss of Spiderweb Software, indy developer superhero, toymaker and all-round good egg has announced a Kickstarter campaign for his new, isometric RPG Queen's Wish: The Conqueror, with a primary fundraising goal of $30k.

'Queen's Wish' will be set in an entirely new game world, but fans of Vogel's work will know what to expect; isometric, old-school, party-based roleplaying, with a massive amount of content and decidedly unhurried gameplay. Details of the new game are a bit thin at present, but 'fort building' of some kind is promised and with the Kickstarter necessary to fund new art.

(I should add that I'm not affiliated with this project in any way, but Jeff's a splendid fellow who's been feeding Mac gamers for over a quarter of a century now).

Update: More details on Jeff's blog here ; the Kickstarter is funded, and the first stretch goal (an iPhone port) has been reached.

Update #2: Stretch goal 2 has been reached (more in-game content).

IMG Forum tip jar?

11 February 2018 - 11:19 AM

Has Tuncer - or whatever benevolent ubermensch who runs this show - got a tip jar somewhere for hosting fees where we can toss him a few bucks as way of thanks? (Or should we just buy more games from the MGS?)

Avernum 3: Ruined World released for Mac

31 January 2018 - 07:39 AM

Heads up isometric RPG fans - Jeff Vogel's Avernum 3 is released for the Mac today (with an iPad version coming soon). There's a large, free, demo available.

For those who don't know, Jeff is a good friend of the Apple community, and has been releasing his indy RPGs for the Mac for 20+ years now. Avernum 3 is a remake- of a remake of Exile 3, but don't let that put you off. You can easily spend 100+ hours in a playthrough of an Avernum game.
