From the website:

Mike Singleton's '84 classic Adventure Strategy game, brought to and updated for Windows.

"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.
Retro style high resolution graphics.
Story Based Adventure - complete with Novella.
Easy dip in/dip out, turn based game play.

From the website:

Mike Singleton's '85 classic Adventure Strategy sequel to The Lords of Midnight "It is many moons now since the Lords of Midnight first appeared out of the soft, wearing gloom. Those of you who took up their challenge and rode with them to battle against the cruel Witchking will need no reminding of that epic struggle. But now a new epic tale unfolds, the story of Doomdark’s Revenge.

The game itself involves both quest and warfare, both exploration and careful strategy. You can play on your own or with friends; there are enough different characters at your command for all the family to join in and struggle against Shareth Heartstealer, Empress of the frozen Empire!" - Mike Singleton - 1985
Retro style high resolution graphics.
Story Based Adventure - complete with Novella.
Easy dip in/dip out, turn based game play.

Enjoy!

    Free is great. Too visually retro for me to handle though. Oh well, added to my collection.

    Man, I remember this from when I was a kid. Never actually played it myself, but I had a friend at school who was obsessed with it on C64.

    No reason for me not to at least take a look since it's free. Thanks.

    Originally coded for a machine with 48KB of RAM and a 3.5MHz processor.

    Minimum specs now - 256MB and 1.6GHz.

    Still free is great.

      Windows on modern PCs is a bigger overhead than the old Spectrum :P

      "Originally coded for a machine with 48KB of RAM" - people actually knew how to code efficiently back then. Nowdays game launchers (not the games themselves) consume 500 MB of RAM. The Chrome browser and anything based upon it is terribly wasteful.

        Maybe you can't consume less than 500MB? Otherwise they'd have done it if that was the case…
