Okay, so Brian Rubin over on Qt3 pointed out that GoG was selling a Eador: Genesis, the Russian game that's currently being revamped as Masters of the Broken World. Being incapable of resisting any turn-based fantasy 4x, I plunked down the $4.79 without hesitation. That was four days ago, and every spare moment I have had since then has been spent playing this game. The interface is a bit clunky and primitive for a 2009 release, but the gameplay is extraordinarily good. Eador has swiftly outranked Fallen Enchantress and Warlock in my estimation, and at this rate (I just lost my 5th game and am going back for more) is poised to overtake Age of Wonders. The strategic, tactical, and rpg (levelling and hero equipping) aspects are engrossing, and the AI -- especially the tactical AI! -- is impressive for the genre. The overall design is brutally challenging in that way only Russian games seem to be, but where that usually puts me off, here I adore it. If you have any interest in this kind of game, I encourage you to check it out. At this price it's a steal. Apparently Masters of the Broken World is a slickified update with all of the basic mechanics in place, which bodes well. MotBW is now my most-anticipated game.
