Love roguelikes? How about really really old school roguelikes? Yes? Good. Get ye butt to the App Store. Sword of Fargoal, a 1982 desktop classic resurrected by its original creator Jeff McCord, has dropped its price to $0 for the next three days. Why? Because Jeff McCord has something to celebrate.
Sword of Fargoal 2 completed a successful Kickstarter campaign back in September 2012, with an estimated delivery date of May 2013. As is often the case though, the project became more time-consuming than the project creators had originally envisioned. But in an update to Kickstarter backers that went live this morning, McCord announced they’ve brought a new developer onto the team to help them see Sword of Fargoal 2 to completion: Anthony Salter. If that’s a new name to you too, I suggest you join me in downloading the demo of his previous work, Inaria.
There’s still no specific launch date for Fargoal 2, but McCord & Co are trying their damnedest to get it out before the end of 2014. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a little more of Jeff McCord handiwork, can I recommend Wizard Hex and Cargo Runners?
