About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Got Game Brings 'Konung 2' to North America - Screens

Got Game Entertainment today announced that it has reached a co-publishing agreement with Merscom LLC to bring "Konung 2" for PC to North America, scheduled for release November 2004. The unique fantasy role-playing game with real-time strategy and adventure elements is set in a mystical world of magic and legend, alive with tribes of wild Slavic hunters, noble traders of the Byzantine Empire, and fearless Viking warriors.

Developed by 1C Company, "Konung 2" adopts the dark and complex atmosphere of ancient Scandinavia found in its predecessor "Konung: Legend of the North". In this tale, which combines history with classical myths and legends, immortal heroes, magical artifacts and ancient sorcery, good and evil have transposed, resulting in chaos and turmoil. Having fallen under the spell of wicked magic, a new Dark Master now threatens the land and only six warriors, male and female descendants of the Titans, can stop him in his quest to destroy all that can be used to return peace and stability. These heroes must summon their courage, strength, and wits to defeat this new face of evil and his minions, both human and monstrous.

While continuing the original's tradition of gong beyond action-style role-playing by offering adventure-style gameplay with dozens of quests and a strong storyline, the sequel stands entirely on its own and offers a wealth of new features.

"There are striking improvements such as an enhanced RPG system with a wide range of character skills and features," said Got Game President, Howard Horowitz. "And better, more varied, fighting techniques combine with improved AI, dozens of quests, detailed dialogue system, additional RTS elements, such as extensive settlement management, and new monsters to make 'Konung 2' twice the action, adventure, and fun."
