Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox is an indie game development project founded out of Brisbane, Australia and is involving nearly 30 people from all over the world. The aim is to recreate the amazing turn-based, first person RPGs from the golden age of PC gaming using modern game engine technology and it’s pretty clear that the game is influenced by Might & Magic series and Eye of the Beholder.
Although the team has stated that the game will be released on December 2012, a playable demo will be made available this Christmas.
Here is also the official trailer and some screenshots of it. As you can see, it looks dated for today’s standards but has something that most modern-day games lack; it has style and that old-school goode atmosphere.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards." Contact: Email
