Comments on Going retro with sprite-based first person


Not only is Lords of Midnight one of the best Speccy games ever made, this article speaks to me personally since I’d started a very similar engine before I started college (‘cept mine was Java). I ran into trouble trying to figure out what sort of game I’d wrap around the engine, but it sounds like you’re working from excellent source material on that.

It seems to be more “free-stylish” than a simple first-person blob-moving dungeon crawler. Which is a good thing 😊.

I also like the fact that (for now) is out door-ish, another thing not common for these kind of games.

Your next stop – a Might and Magic 6 clone 😀 (I know, I know it involves actual 3d stuff…)
