I Stumbled upon something accidentally while browsing throught some stuff about dwarf fortress.

Damn that looks good. I can't believe I've never even heard about that game.
Anyone played it? Where can I get it?

It was awhile since I've played the game, but trust me its good, if not great.

narpet March 3rd, 2008 23:26

It's a good game… I had a lot of fun with it when it came out, though I never finished it. I'm just no good at that type of game… and I eventually get frustrated and quit…

Great stuff! Even better, there's a Linux version.

vanedor March 3rd, 2008 23:59

It's a game I purchased years ago. I might even find the cd on a shelf somewhere. I would say it's a «good» game. It's fun, just a little too shallow imo to be a «great» game.

The game is very good. The game plus the expansion pack is exceptional. It's a shame that Cyberlore never got the chance to do Majesty 2. They had a huge developer presence on their forums and actually seemed to listen to the requests of the players. It's RTS, but I never got the "overwhelmed" feeling of most RTS games I've played.

Arma March 4th, 2008 20:27

It's a nice game. Even good. It's not a standart RTS - since most RTS are about troop control, and Majesty has non of that. It's more of a simulation.

I always thought that work had begun on a sequel, and I think I've seen even some screens somewhere.

dteowner: Paradox Interactive acquired the brand/IP last year and stated their intention of creating "a portfolio under the Majesty brand", so you will probably see a sequel in a year or two.

That's very good news. Thanks for letting me know!

They just brand new re-released it here in Germany in a DVD box for 10 Euros, I noticed to my great surprise (Saturn electronics chain).

A "Gold" version was - as far as I know - never released at the German market. At least I've never seen it.

So I just hope that this new re-release contains the expansion.

Sadly, it (the old release) won't run with my graphics card somehow, but the demo nevertheless does. Strange.

Love Majesty and it's Kayla's favourite game ever. She must have hundreds (thousands? of hours in it).

Looking forward to Paradox' vision.

Zakhary March 7th, 2008 10:26

Sounds like I was right about this game.
I'm gonna need to get it somehow.

EDIT: YES! YES!

You guys do know that it's available from Gamersgate.com, right?

xSamhainx March 7th, 2008 21:47

Make sure that you get the Northern Expansion too, they both come in the Gold edition

KazikluBey April 19th, 2008 02:36

Majesty 2 has been announced.

dteowner April 19th, 2008 02:52

Great news! I must admit to being a little concerned about this part:
"Majesty 2 – The Fantasy Kingdom Sim will focus on reinventing many aspects of the original game"
Seems like most of the time "reinventing" means "screwing up" or "mainstreaming".

KazikluBey April 19th, 2008 03:12

Who knows? Given Paradox's record I would be inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt until further details arise, though.

V7 April 19th, 2008 05:07

Paradox makes some pretty niche sims. I think its safe from 'mainstreaming', 'screwing up' is always a risk though.

Zakhary April 19th, 2008 09:15

Whoa. Thanks for the heads up Kazik. Great news.
Actually, I just bought the Majesty Gold edition for the first game.
A cheap jewelcase re-release but still!
