Of all the projects I've ever been lucky enough to work on,
Kingdom O' Magic was possibly one of the hardest, but definitely one of the most
With over 100 locations, more than 90 characters, a 70,000+ word
script and 3 different quests, it was always going to be a challenge but that only went to
make the finished game and subsequent awards all the more satisfying.
I really love the game because it was designed around the
principal of a "working world" which the player could explore and influence
without feeling he or she was just "on rails". Although we were unable to
achieve everything we wanted, the satisfaction of seeing other characters doing unexpected
things, or finding shortcuts to particular problems was just great.
Developed and published by SCi, the game was extremely
well-received by critics on both sides of the Atlantic, winning the coveted Platinum Award
from PC Power, a CGR Golden Triad Award, and Adventure Of The Year from Gamezilla.
