The cover art for Witchaven 2
was created by artists Ken Kelly
, who also created the cover art for the original game.
During the course of the game, the player collects different weapons and armor to make him appear more or less like a Midian Knight on the cover of the original Witchaven
(spiked shield, horned helmet, chain vest, etc.) However, in the cut scenes, Grondoval wears bright gold armor and helm and never holds an axe. The gold armor only matches with the breastplate that the player can attain during play. The player's hands do not match the cut scene versions' hands and wrists *at all*.
Although it uses the same engine as the original "Witchaven
, slight improvements and changes made it impossible to open Witchaven
maps with the new map editor that came with Witchaven 2
On July 31, 1996, Witchaven II: Blood Vengeance
was put on the infamous German index by the BPjS. For more information about what this means and to see a list of games sharing the same fate, take a look here: BPjS/BPjM indexed games
