GOG free games: “The Lords of Midnight”+”Doomdark’s Revenge”

GOG’s dedication to classic games becomes evident again, as Mike Singleton’s and Chris Wild’s fantasy-strategy-RPG-simulations The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge have become freebies.

The Lords of Midnight is a 2013 remake of a game that was released in 1984, which explains the rather dated pixel graphics. But as one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, one should first play a game before deciding if it’s not worth the time because of its presentation. As with any high fantasy work, epic is the best word to describe the atmosphere, and it’s certainly true for this one. One guides individual characters across the land of Midnight and completes quests as well as commands armies to defend against the hordes of the witch King Doomdark. Basically, it’s a mix of text adventure and turn-based strategy war elements that still proves that one’s imagination can be more powerful than all the latest technological developments.

Doomdark’s Revenge is a sequel that originally came out in 1985 and was again made available with better graphics in 2014, although it won’t win any beauty contest prizes. One should still give it a try, because the mix of RPG, adventure, and strategy gaming can be played alone or with friends, as one can choose to guide different characters on a quest to defeat Shareth Heartstealer, Empress of the frozen Empire (a name that is reason alone to play it!).

The Lords of Midnight and Doomdark’s Revenge can be downloaded for free on GOG from now on.
