Kohan, Kohan, Kohan

…which, as Richard pointed out, should be sung to the tune of Rawhide, is set to return. Probably. In a sprawling interview with GamesIndustry.biz, TimeGate bossman Adel Chaveleh said that: “We’re not walking away from Kohan by any means. It’ll see daylight again.” In what form? He wasn’t sure, or able to say, and he wasn’t about to be lured on talking about that Facebook RTS revamp route.

Presumably if the current project, Section 8 – Prejudice, fails to really cement things for the studio, then they will be returning to pastures old. Or perhaps it will get a reboot regardless?

All the original Kohan games can now be bought from the TimeGate store.

Others – normally the “better” friends – feel it’s in your best interest to take you to one side and question your madness. And laugh. Mainly, laugh.

I’ve been playing Kohan II: Kings of War for the last few weeks. It’s been a bit like that.
