Eador – Genesis

Eador – Genesis is available on GOG.com now. I’ve only played it for about 8 hours, but unless this pulls a GW2-at-80/AC-Tortuga, it appears to be a ridiculously deep and creative take on games like Heroes of Might and Magic. Turn based, hexes, finding magic items, battling monsters and other leaders, leveling heroes, building up towns and areas, etc. The graphics are primitive (think SW:TOR on high settings), but they get the job done.

If you are at all interested in this style of game, at 1/10th of a hobby horse, you can’t pass this up.

Only word of caution is that on my system I had to turn my CPU down to 50%, otherwise the game would lag (would love someone technical to explain to me how that’s possible. CPU just too fast for the game?). Still once I did that (Google it), everything is 100% smooth. The GoG forums have other technical workarounds for netbooks and such.

Also Greenlight this. Looks like an updated version.

    Just a minor correction – Eador: Genesis?

    Looks like an interesting game and at that price well worth trying.
