Chaos Reborn down to £6.99 on steam and gog

Found 7th Feb
not sure if the sale price is live on gog yet.

Well, according to steam I've played 2375 hours on this since it was on steam and who knows how much I played it before it hit steam, at £6.99 it's a bargain for anyone that likes turn based strategy.

Some blurb

Turn-based wizard combat with the tactical positioning of chess and the bluff of poker. Features wizard customization, 100s of gear items, single player realm adventures, online leagues and co-op play.


There are both live and asynch modes so if like me you prefer to take a few turns then go off and do something else or are never sure if you'll actually have that hour free you thought you had then asynch is perfect for that.

There is also a free demo if you want to test it out but that doesn't help the Devs much.

Feel free to add me as a friend in the game client and invite me to a game if you want any help, I'm worto03 on the game too.

cheers,
worto.

i still play the original even to this day. i bought this ages ago and while it's good, i'd have loved to have seen him include a version of the original with it with jazzed up graphics and sound maybe

That would have been great, I'm sure I've put many more than 2375 hours into the original! not sure who owns the rights these days maybe it wasn't possible? It has come up on the forum from time to time as a suggestion but I don't think I've ever seen an official response.

The original is available of World of Spectrum so I'd say at the very least that Gollop has granted distribution permission. He probably does own the full rights as well though because I know Games Workshop are very protective of their rights in many areas.

I'd recommend the version on Android - it's a brilliant copy of the original, even including some of the bugs (but not the crash if you cast the Turmoil spell)

Probably up there with WoW and Championship Manager 01/02 as the game I've spent most time playing.

I've got an iPhone, but I do have Spectaculator on it. I was over the moon when they included the Julian Gollop anthology as a downloadable pack as it had Chaos with it, and it was free as well.

It meant I had zero need to jailbreak because I could finally get Chaos on my iPhone completely legitimately

One of my most favourite memories is when I actually beat 7 other people on an 8 player game of Chaos when I was a kid. The local games shop had a spectrum set up there and enough people turned up one day so we got the game up and running. And I won !

8 player Chaos > Chess

Of course, Chess doesn't let you raise dead your Knight so you can mount it and cheese an undead King...
