Its no secret that I’m a huge fan of Ars Magica and also of computer games, and now an agreement between Atlas Games and Black Chicken Studios is seeking to combine those two wonderful hobbies.
Black Chicken Studios, working under license from Atlas Games, is delighted to present a new simulation role-playing game for the PC. After 25 years and 5 editions, Ars Magica will at long last be paid tribute in a single-player, turn-based video game.
Authentic to the original, this is a faithful, beautiful, and accurate depiction of covenant gameplay and the RPG’s legendary magic system during a dangerous century in the Stonehenge Tribunal. With your help, we’ll bring Ars Magica: Years of Conquest and its tapestry of wars, intrigue, invasion and, above all, magic to life!
I can only rave about how passionate Atlas Games are about Ars magica, and really hope this concept gets through to reality.
If you are a fan of either, spread the word.
