I bet that the most of you are way too young to remember names such as “Microprose” (Civilization 1 and 2, ” Master of Orion” 1 and 2 and “UFO: Enemy Unknown”, to name a few) or “Stewart Bell” (Bell helped to create Microprose in Europe, and he has worked together with big names like Richard Garriott and Chris Roberts). Well, since I grew up playing games in the 80s and 90s I still remember names such as Stewart Bell and Microprose.

I don’t know about you, but “Legends of Enchantment ” made me think about a mix of “Fable”, “King’s Quest”, “Magic Carpet” and “Panzer Dragoon”.

However, it’s been a very long time since I heard those names again. That’s perfectly understandable though, since Microprose became a defunct business back in 2003, and Stewart Bell hasn’t exactly made all that much noise around him for years. Well, the silence has been broken, because I just found out that Bell and Enchanted Software Ltd is working on a fantasy RPG/action adventure game called “Legends of Enchantment” (the game is in development for PC, and the release date is said to take place in December of this year):

 

Story:
“A young shepherd seeking shelter from a storm wandered deep into a mountain’s cave system. He discovered the most exquisite gems and returned home with them. They sold for huge amounts of gold and news travelled far and wide of his good fortune. Soon others began to search for these gems and like the Shepherd sold them to the highest bidder. Then the gems began to hatch.

Hundreds of years ago dragons were worshipped by those who practised magic. Their offerings and sacrifices kept the dragons wrath from the humans. When the dragons began their 500 year hibernation those without magical power turned on those gifted with it. They were driven into hiding, and those caught practicing magic were executed. With their hibernation coming to an end, hell will have no fury like dragons that awake to find their babies gone.”

Yes, you can ride on giant dragons in “Legends of enchantment” (“Panzer Dragoon” and “Dragon Heart” anyone?).

Furthermore, Bell and Enchanted Software launched a Kickstarter campaign for “Legends of Enchantment” just recently. So the idea would be to raise 45,000 pounds within 42 days henceforth. In other words, it’s going to take a whole lot of effort to reach that Kickstarter goal on time. Nevertheless, “Legends of Enchantment” is off to a good start since the game has already collected about 1,100 pounds in a short period of time. Anyways, I have watched the very first video for the game, and so far I have to say that “Legends of Enchantment” made me think about a mix of “Panzer Dragoon”, “King’s Quest”, “Fable” and “Magic Carpet”.

By the looks of it, one should be able to travel around the world of “Legends of Enchantment” with the help of vehicles such as boats and even dragons.

Anyways, I think you get the idea. So let’s move on to the part that concern the gameplay aspect of “Legends of Enchantment” shall we? Well, as I was saying. Here’s what’s known about the game for now:

Gameplay:
“Legends of Enchantment will feature characters inspired by classic literature, those same legends that inspired Tolkien to create his masterpieces. Beowulf, Norse mythology, and the Arthurian Legends all inspired Tolkien’s Legendarium and of course his Lords of the Rings Trilogy.

The game will take you on a quest to save a kingdom and unite its people, taking you through incredible landscapes that you may explore at will. You may travel by foot, carts, horse, boats, even by dragon or magic, the choice is yours and of course based on your knowledge, skill and where in the Kingdoms you are. You will be able to choose your skills and training, by focusing on magic, combat, or crafting. You can also combine skills, the choice is yours.”

And here’re some of the said launch features for “Legends of Enchantment”:

Features:
– Chose to journey alone, build a team or play alongside your friends online.
– Each mode is adapted to make the most of the way you chose to play.
– As a player you can learn to use magic, fight like King Arthur and soar through the air on a dragon.
– You will be able to craft to create an array of objects to help you on your journey.
– You will meet characters and creatures and interact with them; some may help you, some may not.
– Chose from an array of weaponry and magic spells.
– Play Co-op, PVP, or Single Player Story Mode.

Stewart Bell is the driving force behind “Legends of Enchantment”, and for those who didn’t know it. Bell has worked with Richard Garriott on the Ultima Series and Chris Roberts on Times of Lore. Well, that alone is enough to catch my attention.

Other than that, here’s what Stewart Bell had to say about the Kickstarter project for “Legends of Enchantment”:

“The team working on Legends of Enchantment are a wonderful group of talented individuals. They all have backgrounds in games and have a great deal of experience in the industry. They are doing the most incredible job of bringing this game to life and we are all so excited to see Legends of Enchantment coming together.” –  Stewart Bell

Well, I really like the sound of that. So I wish Bell and Enchanted Software the best of luck on Kickstarter =) And with that said, what’s your take on “Legends of Enchantmen” So far? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
