Guys - I don't know if you've noticed this one: http://www.elementalgame.com but this looks pretty interesting. I found it when I was looking for the old Masters of Magic from Microprose (don't know if anyone remembers/played that one). It's sort of a cross between RPG and Civilisation, with some tactical combat thrown in. Looks interesting and I thought some of you guys might be tempted by it.

Anyway, one I formulate some thoughts on it, I'll share them - wondered if anyone else had their eye on it too.

Hi Ben! Yes, this does look interesting. Years ago (before I settled into my current RPG focus) I used to play a lot of strategy-style games, such as Civilization and Master of Orion -- and, of course, Master of Magic, which I know very well. I particularly liked the combination of turn-based strategy and the combat screen for battles with heroes and armies. It'll be interesting to see how Elemental handles integrating RPG elements into a strategy format and whether it can do it effectively, although I'm sure it'll be a while before I have time to look into it.

By the way, in case you didn't manage to find it, Master of Magic is available here on the Abandonia website: Master of Magic
