New release: Lands of Lore 1+2
A handful of you guys got it right in the Facebook survey: The newest addition to the EA part of the GOG.com catalogue is Lands of Lore 1 and 2 for only $5.99.In Lands of Lore 1: The Throne of Chaos your main objective is to stop the Dark Army led by the evil sorceress Scotia. You’ll need to save the life of Gladstone Keep monarch, King Richard (voiced by The Patrick Stewart) who was poisoned by the shape-shifting witch. Your party of up to three heroes will embark on an epic quest to find the cure. Choose from four different characters, a dragon-lizard hybrid Dracoid named Ak’shel who specializes in spellcraft, a human-feline hybrid--a Huline, as they’re called in the Lands of Lore universe--named Kieran, and two humans: the warrior Michael and the jack-of-all-trades Conrad. There is no typical levelling system in place, instead the game uses a skill-centric approach. Performing melee weapon attacks increases the fighting skills, and casting spells boosts your magic stats.Lands of Lore 2: Guardians of Destiny takes the dungeon crawling experience you love and evolves it into the third dimension with real-time 3D graphics. This time you are Luther, the son of main villainess from the first Lands of Lore game. Your mother left you with a gargantuan task to perform: tame the God of Evil, Belial, whose revival rituals were started by your mother. With the gift of shapeshifting and another god’s help (Draracle, the keeper of Belial) it’s your job to stop the annihilation of the world as we know it. Although you’re the son of a master villainess, you don’t have to be evil; the story will let you choose your destiny as you interact with the world and decide whether to be a hero championing the cause of good, or a villain who wants to rule the world in an iron fist.
