Title: Some Pre-history: Where the Plantagenet idea came from
Post by: rdl-admin on October 03, 2018, 08:33:56 PM
The genesis of this project was a little top-down scrolling RPG called 'Lionheart' conceived by Mark Stimson and myself to run on the ZX-Spectrum back in 1984 or thereabouts. We never had the opportunity to complete this, but a few prototypes were put together and we came up with some natty ideas that later got implemented in other games of the time and later.

Fast-forward 30-odd years and I find myself seeing some medieval adventures being thrown around, along with great civilisation simulations and I'm thinking that there's room in the future for something along those lines but quite possibly more.
