Thunderscape Released on GOG

Thunderscape

[adsense250itp]Thunderscape officially released for sale on GOG.com. The classic PC RPG is now part of the site’s large catalog of more than 500 games and can be purchased for $5.99.

Though originally designed for play on DOS, the game has been optimized for modern operating systems. The title is free of DRM and comes with extras, which include a PDF of the original game manual and the game’s official soundtrack.

Kyoudai Games, who currently holds the license for the game and its setting, previously came to an agreement with GOG.com to distribute the World of Aden games through the online service. Thunderscape is the first game to be publicly released under that agreement. Its indirect sequel, Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall, will soon follow.

The first in a series of two games developed by Strategic Simulations, Inc., Thunderscape was published on home computers in 1995 by Mindscape. The fantasy-based game is set in the steampunk-like world of Aden during a period of industrial growth known as the Thunder Age.

Thunderscape’s story involves a dark force known as the Darkfall. Seizing control of Aden, the Darkfall halt the kingdom’s progress into an industrial society and take control of much of the kingdom. The Darkfall fills the land with mindless hellspawn known as Nocturnals.

Selecting from seven races and multiple classes, players must form a party of up to six characters and start a quest in search of a magical shield deactivated by the Darkfall. If activated, it will end the Darkfall’s reign and restore order back to Aden.

Thunderscape is a first-person RPG set in a 3D environment – a feature that is still fairly unique for video games despite the time that has past since it originally released. Using  a turn-based system, players combat various enemies, solve puzzles and develop their characters in order to save Aden.
