Majesty 2 - Ardania
“Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be wrong.”
Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is set in the magical world of Ardania. Those who have played the original Majesty will easily recognize many familiar places.
Indeed, the world of Ardania is very picturesque: the forests and mountains of the kingdom are populated by all sorts of monsters, as well as many more peaceful animals; fish and other aquatic creatures swim happily about the many rivers, ponds and lakes; beautiful flowers grace the fields; green oases are scattered here and there across the deserts. Ardania also has unique secret quest locations, like the Temple to the Dead God, where the player is sure to discover amazing adventures.
Each level of the game is carefully created and detailed by hand (unlike the original game, where the location of objects on the map was generated randomly). This fine-tuned approach allows the creation of truly unique game maps with finely-adjusted balance. Thus the game provides many interesting opportunities for players to develop special tactics to complete each mission.
Three types of landscapes are projected for Majesty 2 – the Plains, the Jungles, and the Desert. Each of these terrains have their own style, inhabitants, and buildings.
