Over the weekend, I started writing a homage to the late Mike Singleton’s singular achievement, The Lords of Midnight. Released thirty years ago, the game and its sequel were first-person strategy-RPG hybrids before the foundation of either genre had been laid. A rare sunny day rudely interrupted my efforts to complete the article and I hadn’t even opened Word this morning before a reminder of the game slid into my browser. Legions Of Ashworld is the closest thing to Lords of Midnight that I’ve seen since Doomdark’s Revenge, the sequel to Lords of Midnight. Quite how I’ve managed to miss out on the entire four-year development process of Ashworld is a mystery but the game is out now and I’m keen to see more. Trailer below.
