Mr Fix-It: Eador – Masters Of The Broken World

By Adam Smith on September 13th, 2012 at 8:00 pm.

I wonder what it’s like being the Master of a Broken World. Probably quite difficult I’d imagine, but some folk would probably argue it’s better than serving in a fully functioning world. Snowbird are offering a chance to find out how you’d cope as just such a master with their upcoming strategy game, Eador: Masters of the Broken World. The world has been shattered and there are now separate shards of land scattered through the skies, which makes the setting look a bit like Bastion. But the game itself is apparently more like Age of Wonders as the gameplay overview video below communicates quite clearly. The video has been released to coincide with the game’s presence on Greenlight. Take a look.

It’s certainly my sort of thing and hopefully we’ll have more information soon. Here’s the Greenlight page.

    There has been a thread here in the RPS forums about it for a while now, and the dev has been supplying plenty of info and even some screenies. Looking pretty good!

  3. BurningPet says:

    Already upvoted and favourited. this deserve steam.

  4. caddyB says:

    I love it! Upvoted and going to buy it!

  5. Subject 706 says:

    Ooooo, looks interesting! Since my hopes for Warlock:Master of the Arcane being as good as MoM were dashed, perhaps this one will be a contender instead.

    • BurningPet says:

      From the looks and descriptions i think it will be more of a Age of Wonders than MoM

      • pakoito says:

        In-depth explanation?

        • benjiming6541 says:

          Friends! We can see! iPhone 5 (New iPhone) Accessories! Pretty cool, right! The most important is that now has a 20% discount! http://wz.gl/9jq8

        • BurningPet says:

          Well, it has been a pretty long time since i played both, but from what i recall, MoM was more about moving armies while AoW was about smaller squads. MoM had a more emphasis on city management than AoW (although, perhaps masters of the broken world has the same emphasis). AoW felt more like a strategic adventure game, while MoM was more of a magical empire managing game. i might be utterly mistaken here, but i also recall MoM had much more over the top world spells.

    Been waiting forever for this game, now it’s Steamruined. Heroes V it is then.

    • Jenks says:

      What a tragedy, you’ll be missed.

    • lordcooper says:

      Down with this sort of person.

    • Zeewolf says:

      Why do you assume it’ll exclusively be sold on Steam (provided they even get past the red light)?

      • SkittleDiddler says:

        Since MythDorkana is on my blocklist, I have to assume he said something about Steam right?

        • Kaiji says:

          You figured that out from a response that says “Why do you assume it’ll exclusively be sold on Steam”?

          You’d be a great detective.

          • sassy says:

            don’t need to be a great detective. I read his comment without looking at the name and knew exactly who said it.

        • Sheng-ji says:

          He basically said that even though he’s been waiting for the game forever, because they submitted it to green light, he’s not going to buy it now.

          I’m sure the good readers of RPS can make up their own minds what consumer choices they want to make without criticising each other for what comes down to a matter of opinion, right guys?

            Well, you have to admit that position is pretty silly. Even if spending much energy mocking it is too.

          Kind of defeats the purpose of blocking someone if you are then going to ask (or speculate) on what they’ve said.

    • Imperium says:

      No worries, it won’t be Steam exclusive. We’re going to release on as many places as we can.

    My dishwasher’s playing up – does that count?

      Tell him to get back into the kitchen ;)

      THIS WAS HUMOUR, IT DOES NOT REPRESENT MY TRUE ATTITUDE TOWARDS MEN
      Lets not turn this into another sexism debate.

      It does represent my true attitude towards my son though!

      • sassy says:

        That’s what sons are for. They are just cheap labor … except not cheap and very lazy

        • Subject 706 says:

          And when they’re young, YOU are the laborer doing the dirty work.

  8. Ghoulie says:

    That looks really good, Warlock was a little too focused on combat for my taste.

    “Probably quite difficult I’d imagine, but some folk would probably argue it’s better than serving in a fully functioning world.”

    awesome part, you blew my mind :D

  10. Ed123 says:

    Looking quite pleasant. Got my eye on dis.

  11. Slinkyboy says:

    I’m really excited for this game! I can’t waaaait!

  12. HSuke says:

    I heard “Age of Wonders” and I was sold.

  13. Hunchback says:

    Hope this can fill the void i’ve had in my gaming experience ever since i was done playing Heroes 3.
    Definitely giving it my greenlight there.

  14. Didero says:

    From that video, it looks a bit overly-complex to me.

    Or am I just simple-minded? >_>

  15. OmniLol says:

    This game was actually made a looong time ago. It’s an indie project completed by a single guy in, like, 7 years or smth

    The original version has extremely simplified graphics and is entirely in Russian :)

    It’s a mix between HoMM\original King’s Bounty and an rpg. I’d say it even resembles King of Dragon Pass somewhat. Good game, imho
