So, Elemental : War of Magic (War /for/ Magic? Not sure.) came out a while back, as a spiritual successor to Master of Magic, one of my favorite games of all time. And it… kinda sucked. I played with it for a while, but felt like I was just groping around in the dark, unable to hope for a victory.
The game was a bomb, and in a rare move, the head of Stardock Games admitted they screwed up. They announced they’d remake the game - and if you bought the first one before a certain date, you’d get the new one for free - and if you bought the old one after that date, you could get a nice discount on the new one.
The new one, Fallen Enchantress, is in Beta, version 0.77 - and while there are a couple of UI glitches and at least one crash bug I can reliably reproduce, it’s good. Very good. I lost six hours this past Sunday to it - just kind of blanked out the time between lunch and supper.
Anyone else playing it?
