Simon the Sorcerer 2 Gold Soon
11:08 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Overseas developer Epic Interactive has confirmed with IMG that their port of 2D adventure title Simon the Sorcerer 2 is nearly complete and should go "gold" on Monday next week. This humorous title is a mix of puzzles, mini-games and lots of really odd characters, and should be a big hit with those who loved the King's Quest series.

Thomas Steiding of Epic confirmed over e-mail that the Mac version should go gold soon, just after their port of this game to the Amiga was finalized. An ideal iMac/iBook game, this title's low processor requirements and offbeat humor should appeal to the younger crowd while challenging the old fogies. Here are some details about the game from Epic's web site:

Simon was sitting on his bed, when all of a sudden, a large wardrobe appears in his room before him. He climbs into it, and is magically transported back into the world he went into in the last game, except everything seems to be a little more "modern." When visiting Calypso, he learns that he needs to get an item called "mucusade," which is what the cabinet runs on to transport things. So the only way he can get home is if he gets the mucusade. Don't worry though, Sordids' back and will make this a long and challenging quest for Simon.


  • 80 + locations
  • about 100 charcters to interact with
  • meet many weird and crazy characters such as the swampling
  • full spoken dialogues (speech in English, German and Italian subtitles)
  • easy to use point&click interface
  • hundreds of Sound FX
  • more than 50.000 frames of animation
  • handdrawn charcters and backrounds
  • CD quality music
  • play in window mode or full screen
Sounds like quite a treat! We'll let you know when and where this game will be available.

In related news, Epic's port of the RTS title Earth: 2140 has just gone gold for the Amiga; at last report, the Mac version was 2-3 weeks behind the PC version, so this one might be on its way as well! We'll do more investigating on this issue; in the meantime check out the Earth: 2140 web site for a glimpse of what is to come.
