Mike Singleton's '84 classic Adventure Strategy game, brought to and updated for Windows.

"The Lords of Midnight is not simply an adventure game nor simply a war game. It was really a new type that became known as an epic game, for as you play the Lords of Midnight you will be writing a new chapter in the history of the peoples of the Free. You will guide individual characters across the land of Midnight on vital quests but you will also command armies that must endeavour to hold back the foul hordes of Doomdark, the witch king. Yours will be no inevitable victory." - Mike Singleton 1984.

  • Retro style high resolution graphics.
  • Story Based Adventure - complete with Novella.
  • Easy dip in/dip out, turn based game play.

12yo me found this confusing as hell. I suspect 47yo me is no different.

Thanks for the heads up (:
wow...i remember these...loved lords of midnight as 14yo
These were the 80s version of Skyrim.

Speecy 48k and 20 min waiting times for it to load. Heady days indeed these were WAY ahead of their time back in the day.
I just bought these at GOG last week!
Bad timing eh?

Heat added. Great games. Played for hours on my speccy.

Love this..

Kind of wish it touted "Low Resolution Graphics" though, heh, all good.
I never finished this as a kidling, now I can never finish as an adult!
Was always obsessing over a military win, not doing a Frodo.
Loved this back in the day. Bought my Spec48k with my saved up money as a 16 to in 83.
Remember painstakingly making the map that came in Crash magazine. Laminating it with a lot of sellotape
I too first played these on the speccy, back in the day, from the Beyond range of games, I preferred Shadowfire.

Move everyone to Xajorkith and wait out the attack. Move North easy military victory.

Exactly what i did too lol...recruited quickly, piled everyone into Xajorkith, waited, defended, then moved north to victory...was so chuffed as a 14yo to beat the game.

Lord of Xajorkith...He stands at the Citadel of Xajorkith, looking North to the Plains of Corelay.
It is dawn and Xajorkith is slightly tired. The Ice Fear is Mild, Xajorkith is bold.

The Lord of Xajorkith commands one thousand two hundred warriors and eight hundred riders. His warriors are invigorated. His riders are invigorated.

I'll give that a go, but if I lose again......(I'm still not doing a Frodo!)...I kinda always want the badies to win....

Make sure you recruit Farflame on the first or second day. Don't put him into battle against Skulkrin though.

Yep, the battle at Xajorkith was the way to do this game.
If I 'buy' this for free on GOG can I download it later in the year or do I need to dl it right away?
(I bought some free games on Steam last year and can't access them now.)

You can buy and not install on gog...it just sits in your library until you're ready.
I only have about 5 of 30 games installed through gog.

You shouldn't have lost access to any games on your Steam account either - are you sure that it wasn't a temporary free-to-play period rather than an actual giveaway?

Yeah, it might have been. They're definitely not there now though.

Can you recall what the games were?
Great find. I completed Doomdark's Revenge (revealing the watchwords) and the playback is hosted elsewhere. Never completed LOM but had a few goes!

All power to the Utarg of Targ, I say, and bring on The Eye of the Moon which I've been waiting 35 years for.

I feel like it was one of the X-Com games, but I can't find the purchase email in my inbox. Maybe I'm imagining it or it was another platform?
I loved these on the ZX Spectrum. I replayed LOM on a windows simulator about 10 years ago. Loved it..

Same. Same age too! What are the chances?!?

On a thread about Lords of Midnight? Pretty much guaranteed! Only us 8-bit veterans would know..
The speccy version of LoM is also available for free on Android. It's now my 9yo daughter's goto game.
