Ships Ahoy - Warlock - Master of the Arcane

This announcement heralds the release of Warlock - Master of the Arcane. They have details on where to buy the game as well as a reminder about the playable demo on Steam. Here's word on this turn-based strategy game that uses the setting from the Majesty series:

Control one of three different factions, learn dozens of powerful spells and command a vast array of troop types as you set out to make your wizard the one true ruler of Ardania. You must carefully plan your expansion and economy to build and support the armies you create. And don't forget to harvest mana; you will need to cast enchantments on friend and foe alike if you want to defeat your enemies and hold back the hordes of wandering monsters.

Warlock is clearly a Fall from Heaven 2 clone. No one here ever played Fall from Heaven 2?

Yeah I played quite a bit of that back in the day!

I had great fun with the demo of this and preordered. The 1UPT hex combat with the damage types, buffs and magic spells really works well on the Civ 5 engine, even better than it did for Civ 5 itself. From the demo I really felt they'd struck a magic balance between keeping individual decisions to being straightforward while allowing you to build up your cities and magic according to different strategies. I am just loading up the full game and taking a session now

Yes, mutiplayer is a planned update. From the design of the game I suspect only live multiplayer would work, there seems to be no provision for simultaneous turn or PBW or anything like that. Having said that the smaller maps would play very well as multiplayer and with all the magic flying around I think the balance of fights could shift around rapidly and it could be fantastic.
