Masters Of The Broken World "Revealed"

Dragon Commander isn't the only turn-based game to be announced today. Along comes Masters Of The Broken World. Funded by the same organisation that gave us Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword - Snowberry Connection - this was originally the creation of one man, Russian Alexey Bokulev. His force was combined with that of Unicorn Games Studio, and they received the funding to do a complete remake. That's what it says here, anyway. Which is what we're talking about now.

It's described as a "non-linear fantasy turn-based strategy", but the one mistake the press release makes is to forget to say what the game is actually about. Here are the scattered clues:

"Offering global, strategic and tactical levels of gameplay, MBW features the traditional “good vs. evil” decision dilemma where consequences of player’s choices significantly influence the outcome of the main game. Rebellions are best put out with a few legions of zombies… but if you’ll need this particular province at a later time, you’ll live to regret some of your easy decisions."

So it's on a large scale, there are zombies, and moral choices.

And er, that's it. Lots about how the game has come about, nothing about what the game is. Oops. But more will apparently be revealed at Gamescom.
