The people of Issegeac believe that their good fortune depends on the spellbook that has been in their village for over nine centuries. When the keeper of the text, your grandfather, is killed and the Grimoire stolen, the villagers ask your help. Now it is your task to find the Black Sect's hideout and return the spellbook to Issegeac.
Have you ever heard of Lankhor's Black Sect? Have you ever tried it?
Lankhor's Black Sect is a great game (on the AGS forums we agreed 'intriguing' is a better word though). It has however a few features that where normal in 1993 but aren't so popular today. The game is timed, has dead ends, only 5 save slots, 20+ action icons, no smart cursor and you can die.
Because I thought there was a nice game buried under all that, I've made a remake that eliminates all those elements that are likely to frustrate players today. I also added a few puzzles, changed the ones I didn't understand and made new music.
This remake features among other things:
- Timeflow based on player actions, so no dead ends
- Unlimited save slots (Well, I don't know that. More than 30 anyway)
- 2 action cursors
- Smart cursor that lights up over interactive areas
- Extra puzzles
- Changed puzzles to suit the new interface
- Updated hint system
- New sound and music
And kept from the original game:
- first person exploration
- Lankhor's art and animations (mostly)
- 31 locations to explore
- day and night cycle
So if you like to try it you can download the game from http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/Games.aspx/Detail/1578/Black_Sect_Remake
Hope you like it.
