GOG celebrates its 14th anniversay with SimTex and Slitherine Ltd.‘s classic fantasy 4X strategy game Master of Magic becoming a limited-time freebie.
14 years is a long time for companies, especially in the online business, and with GOG making sure that timeless classics won’t be forgotten, Master of Magic is the perfect gift to accompany the anniversary sale. Originally released in 1994, the title allows players to fill in the role of a powerful wizard to beat the magical opposition.
After 25 years, the game has received its first official patch that improves AI behavior and adds more spells to the already impressive roster of magic. It’s also possible to play it with an optional community update, but even without it, there’s plenty to do thanks to 14 races one can take control of and 10 spellbooks from 5 different realms with more than 200 spells to choose from as well as 18 special abilities to use.
