Welcome to the World's first-ever Epic game, The Lords of Midnight. It more closely resembles a fantasy film than a computer game but the main difference is that you are in control of the main characters and whether you lead them to victory or defeat, the story is written around your exploits. The game sets the scene, controls the forces of evil and independent characters which move in and out of the plot and draws the landscape of Midnight and its people in a way never before seen in any computer game.
"The Lords of Midnight is not simply an adventure game nor simply a war game. It was really a new type that became known as an epic game, for as you play the Lords of Midnight you will be writing a new chapter in the history of the peoples of the Free. You will guide individual characters across the land of Midnight on vital quests but you will also command armies that must endeavour to hold back the foul hordes of Doomdark, the witch king. Yours will be no inevitable victory." - Mike Singleton 1984
