Back of Box - DOS (UK):

    THE STORY:

    The entire world wavers on the brink of collapse. The brave knights have been summoned to journey into the land of the Bloodmarch. It is there that the most powerful Talisman known to man rests. He who harnesses its powers rules the realm.
    A crusade led by King Luxor, your father, to uncover the Talisman has met with disaster. He has been captured by Bloodmarch's evil ruler, Boroth the Wolfheart, and is being held in the despot's dark citadel. You must command the rescue of your Liege. Should you fail, King Luxor will be killed and chaos will reign supreme.
    LORDS OF MIDNIGHT is the ultimate role-playing experience. DOMARK has used the most advanced programming techniques to bring a huge fantasy world to life.

    • 3D texture-mapped polygons give combat sequences and characters an amazingly realistic look and feel.
    • 360° camera angles offer an unparalleled cinematic experience.
    • Control up to 24 separate characters and their parties. Each acts independently and harnesses separate Artificial Intelligence functions.
    • Optional Time Lock mode allows the advanced gamer to play in real time. As each day passes in your world, so does the equivalent time in the game.

    [captions]

    Lords of Midnight offers a non-linear storyline with many ways to complete your quest. This results in a game that plays like an interactive novel.

    Journey through the largest terrain area of any role-playing game - the equivalent of eight CD-ROMs of the most advanced graphics ever!

    The online help system, which includes an almanac and traveller's guide, provides easy access to the information you need to succeed.

    All characters are rendered in 3D texture-mapped polygons. The cinematic approach offers the most realistic combat in a role-playing game.

    Travel the realm on dragonback. The 32-bit terrain generator gives you both straight-ahead perspectives as well as tree-skimming views.

    The days and seasons pass before your eyes. You can choose to play game days as actual days in the optional Time-Locked mode.

    Face to face with a stranger. Recruit up to 24 characters and their parties. Success lands you a key ally. Failure embroils you in furious 3D combat.

    The final showdown at Boroth's citadel! Pursue your enemies through its treacherous corridors. The ultimate challenge lies ahead!

    Mike Singleton's
    LORDS OF
    MIDNIGHT

    Der legendäre Spieledesigner Mile Singleton hat in Zusammenarbeit mit Domark das visuell beeindruckendste PC-Rollenspiel aller Zeiten entwickelt. Das Ziel der Lords of the Midnight ist die Schwarze Zitadelle von Boroth the Wolfheart, und Sie sind der Anführer, wenn Sie an der Seite zahlloser interaktiver Figuren in Echtzeit quer durch atemberaubend schöne 3D-Landschaften ziehen.

    • Die "Move-and-Touch"-Spielwelt erlaubt Ihnen den Zugriff auf ein interaktives Buch (einschließlich Almanach und Bestiarium), einen Reiseführer, eine In-Game-Karte, Informationen zu Helden und Schurken, einen aktualisierten Kalender, ein agebuch und ermöglicht Ihnen den Aufbau all ihrer Gemeinschaften und Allianzen.

    • Brillante 3D-Landschaften aus der Ich-Perspektive, die in Echtzeit dargestellt sind und mit Hilfe von Fraktalen generiert wurden.

    • Die Handlung findet in einer Tag-und-Nacht-Welt statt, d.h. die Sonne geht auf und unter, die Jahreszeiten kommen und gehen, der Winter bricht mit Eis und Schnee herein - all diese Dinge beeinflussen das Fortkommen Ihrer Armeen.

    • Durch die Einführung fortschrittlicher künstlicher Intelligenz können Sie eine Unmenge Figuren in phantastischer 3D-Animation steuern und mit ihnen kommunizieren.

    • Das riesige Spielfeld umfaßt Gebirge, Täler, Strände, Flußmündungen, Inseln, Ebenen und Wälder, die alle unter Verwendung sensationeller 3D-Grafiken dargestellt werden.

    We can't show you all the views of the Lords of Midnight - there are 32,000!

    We've invented a new programming technique called Landscaping, creating a completely new kind of game, the Epic.
