Hi there!

As some of you may already know, Eador. Masters of the World is based on the turn-based strategy that was released only in Russia and in Russian some time ago. That game was made by one man and was called Eador. Genesis.

Starting today you can buy DRM-free copy of the original game in English on GOG.com! If you’re wondering what Masters of the Broken World could offer you in terms of gameplay this is your chance to find out.

GOG team was also kind enough to make this trailer for the game, check it out:

New gameplay video – Strategic aspects of Eador

Caribbean! development update, new Snowbird forum

October 17, 2012  |  Caribbean!, Snowbird, На Карибы!  |  2 Comments

Hi there, today we’d like to tell you what is going here in Snowbird – we’ll try to do it on a weekly basis. Let’s start with the strategic map in the Caribbean! game. Everybody, who played Mount & Blade already knew how it’s done – it is a rectangular land mass, cut with the several rivers, with a sea coast on the one side. In the Caribbean, we have much more difficult issues with terrain – we need to separate the islands from the continent, to achieve the decent visualization of the sea, provide a tropical landscape, etc.

The most complicated thing is, of course, the water – it’s no easy task to turn something which looks like a huge lake into realistic tropical sea.

Recently, one of our videos was leaked into internet (and we will hang the scoundrel who organized this, when we will found him), where one of the early versions of the strategy map was shown. Honestly – we didn’t like it at all. Take a look on these screenshots and compare the old ones with new ones, so you’ll get the idea about the direction we’re moving in.

By the way, we’ve just opened the official Snowbird forum, which is a great place to discuss Caribbean!, Eador. Masters of the Broken World and everything else. You’re most welcome: http://www.snowbirdgames.com/forum/index.php.

Eador & Caribbean! moved to Q1 2013

Yes, we’ve just moved  both our games, Eador. Masters of the Broken World and Caribbean! to the beginning of 2013.

Why? First of all, we’d like to implement the multiplayer modes into both games properly, so the players will be able to fight each other online from the Day One. We want to spend more time on polishing both games, adding additional visual and sound effects, improving UI, etc. Finally, we want to launch a massive beta-testing of Caribbean! and Eador in 2012.

We hope that the long wait for our games will be offset by their outstanding quality and the tons of fun.

P.S. Due to the fact that we’ve already announced, that Eador will be released before Armageddon, the End of the World in December 2012 is officially cancelled.
