New HoMM IV Campaign Released
More good news for all you
Heroes fans out there: after the release of the co-op Heroes III
campaign just two weeks ago, yesterday saw the release of another
little gem. Lamentia's Story
is a 6-map campaign for Heroes IV Equilibris, created by Round Table veteran Jeff
. It follows the story of his previous work, Dragon's Fate
, although you don't have to know the story from the previous campaign to play this one.
campaigns sees extended use of the good old H4Util program, enabling
mapmakers to embed pictures in their maps, making the minimaps works of
art in addition to work pieces of gameplay pieces. If you don't know
what I'm on about, have a look at these minimaps and take a guess at
whether they're all painstakingly made by hand or by the clever use of
some kind of software. Looks brilliant, doesn't it...
Kudos to Jeff for finishing this after three years of
on-and-off work, and honourable mentions to the testers as well -
Wimfrits, Robenhagen, HodgePodge and Koni. Not everybody can be
bothered doing proper testing nowadays, and yet it is vital to ensure
the quality of the finished product. Drinks all 'round!
