Master of Magic has been acquired by Slitherine

I understand the UI is functional and you eventually “get the hang of it” but it’s still bad. It’s unintuitive, hard to read, and frankly a bit ugly. I have no problem with the gameplay of DE. It’s great. But man, they gotta do something for future versions like hire an actual UI designer.

Thats me as well - I bought Deity Empires since people praised it as a new MoM, but it really wasnt (for me).

I’d love an updated version of MoM - a game I still play occasaionally. The UI is surprisingly good actually, for a game that old.

Never knew about Deity Empires before this thread.

That is one butt ugly game.

Says the guy in the Master of Magic thread.

Master of Magic looks pretty good for its time. Deity Empires looks good for a Spiderweb Software-style game. That is not a compliment.

Considering I have played a few games of MoM in the past year, Caster of Magic looks worthwhile. An improved AI is definitely something that would enhance playing MoM.

What you doing here, sir? Hmpf!

I was interested in the game, I just didn’t realize the base game was being sold for such a high price.

The games looks aren’t a key feature for me, but it seems to be to other people.

After it goes done to about a dollar, I will probably jump on it.

It’s only $6 on Steam.

Also, this and the new DLC are on Steam, which I thought was cool. I wishlisted it to pick it up for a few bucks at the next sale.

What are we talking about that’s expensive? Master of Magic for $6 on GOG and then $3 for the Caster update?

I assume, yeah. No idea what the big deal is, no.

6 dollars is about 5 dollars more then I want to spend on it, or really can afford.

Money is usually tight, but we live comfortably lives because we are careful. That usually means not buying coffees, planning meals and eating at home.

It also means not spending 6 dollars on games that I current have on DosBox somewhere, and haven’t played in years.

It all adds up.

It is indeed a high price given that most of us have bought the game already on a CD that probably won’t work today (or has been lost after countless of relocations)!

Don’t smokescreen us while you implied in your statement that Master of Magic had ugly graphics, you heretic!

OK, you’ve intimated your financial approach before on here and I respect that.

A better choice of words than “I just didn’t realize the base game was being sold for such a high price.” is probably a good approach for next time. I thought it was like $30 or something. $6 is not “such a high price” in a world where that gets you two cups of regular coffee or a large fancy one.

I wouldn’t call that beverage “coffee”.
Let’s see how far we can derail this thread :D

You know what I mean!

We can settle this over lap times in Virtua Racing! Another game with “ugly graphics”!

I typed my previous sentence while sipping a cup of Nescafé… Oh the human contradictions!
Can I back out and get a pass on making public my lap times? :O

Here’s the changelog for Caster of Magic 6.0
