Yes, im new. Yada, yada, yada.


Anyway, I was looking throught an old computer preveiw magazine, and I found a section on a game called Majesty: Empires of the Darklands. I was curious, so I looked it up on the internet and found a website. Here. It looks just like majesty, but with a few subtle differences.

Was this a majesty game only released in Europe or something?

They could be early screenshots of majesty and the name was changed later on.

Those frost-bolt shots the wizards are firing in the rock golem screenshot are neat! Wonder why they didn't keep the graphics, if this is an early version of Majesty.

Is it just me or does the elevation seems to change more often in those screenshots than usually happens in Majesty?

I'm confused because the date is 1998 which is before Majesty came out but the graphics are so much better.

Astonishing. This was years before wc3 brought 3d graphics to the RTS mainstream. I knew Majesty was ahead of it's time, but this is truly remarkable. Maybe the processor demands of this engine convinced Cyberlore to go 2d-isometric instead, in hopes of capturing a larger audience?
Those rogues went through some costume modifications, I see. I'm surprised that so much content was in place at that early stage.
