King Of Dragon Pass is certainly one of that video games that speaks to me like no different. It is all of my favorite issues blended collectively. It is a generator of sagas. It’s half tribal administration sport, half Choose Your Own Adventure romp, and it was doing a variety of what Crusader Kings 2 has develop into identified for means again in 1999. I’m past excited, then, in regards to the announcement of a non secular successor from the a number of the first sport’s creators: Six Ages. Check out the teaser trailer beneath.
The precise announcement occurred all the way back in 2014, however who remembers what the world was like that way back? Six Ages is due out this 12 months, nonetheless, so let’s begin speaking about it once more. It sounds so much like its predecessor; managing and placating your tribe, coping with gods and monsters, and chatting to your useful roster of advisors. Even the temporary glimpse of the UI calls to thoughts Dragon Pass. The world itself could be recognisable too, as we’re returning to Glorantha.
Between the beginning of Six Ages’ improvement and now, King Of Dragon Pass obtained a recent coat of paint and a re-release on PC and cell. The enhancements are minor and it was begging for a extra full-featured replace, nevertheless it’s nonetheless the definitive model, and fewer than a tenner, besides. It’s on Steam, and properly price a punt when you’d prefer to see why Six Ages is a reasonably thrilling prospect. You may nonetheless get the unique version bundled with the brand new one on GOG, the place it’s so much cheaper.
Here’s a snippet from Alec’s King Of Dragon Pass review:
“King Of Dragon Pass might look simplistic and even a little cheesy, but it is enormous, smart and fiendish. Choose your own adventure writ at the grandest scale, and a chance to tell your own history, not a mere legend. While the ‘new’ version is only a baby step towards technological contemporariness and cuts far too many corners on PC, it is nonetheless a more accessible improvement over its 90s ancestor, and most of all it’s a very good excuse to embark upon one of the most rewarding, compelling and tragedy-strewn adventures you’ll ever have.”
